The year 2021 has finally started and from the first weekend, we moviegoers were able to follow the presentation of the Critics Choice Super Awards, which recognized “ Soul ” and “ Palm Springs ” as the big winners of this Sunday evening (10). However, due to the many postponements in 2020, the awards calendar this year is a bit messy, so we’ve rounded up the main events of the year here and how and where you can watch it! But stay tuned, as that information may change over the next few weeks, depending on the progress of immunization around the world.
Golden Globe – February 28
In other years, the Golden Globe opened the international awards season, which always takes place on the first Sunday of the year. This year, however, the ceremony has been postponed to February 28, and it is still controversial: whether “Hamilton” – the filmed play by Lin-Manuel Miranda has been accepted and can compete in the comedy or music category. The finalists will be announced on February 3 and the ceremony will be broadcast on TNT.
Critics Choice Awards – March 7
Unlike the event that has already taken place, the Critics Choice Awards focus on television productions. If the scenario is not sure by then, the event will be completely virtual. The event will air overseas on the CW channel, but here in Brazil it has yet to be confirmed – although everything indicates that TNT will air. The finalists will be announced on January 18.
Screen Actors Guild Awards – SAG Awards – March 14
The award is presented by the Union of Actors of the American Alliance of Radio and Television Artists, it is the best thermometer for Oscar. Nominees will be announced on February 4 and the award will take place on March 14. The transmission will probably be on E! Channel.
Grammy Awards – March 14
The 63rd Grammy Awards, the grand prize for world music, have already announced their nominees and will take place on March 14 with a broadcast in Brazil by TNT.
BAFTA – April 11
The main UK cinema prize has been postponed to April 11, but everything indicates that it will take place in virtual format. This year, the British Academy of Arts will require a diversity quota between nominees and E! must broadcast the event.
Oscar – April 25
If vaccination progresses in the United States, it is likely that some guests will attend the 93rd Academy Awards, however, so far predictions are that it will be a virtual event with a master of ceremonies in live face to face, broadcast in Brazil simultaneously by TNT. and the compressed version then transmitted by TV Globo. The shortlist will be released on February 9 and the top nominees of the year will be released on March 15.
Gramado Film Festival – July / August
It is very likely that this year’s event will follow the 2020 format and will once again be completely virtual, with the presentation of the already renowned Renata Boldrini. The event usually takes place from late July to mid-August and last year the films in competition were shown for free on Canal Brasil.
Emmy Awards – September
In the second half of the year, it is possible that many artists will already be vaccinated, and therefore, it may already be possible to have an award at least hybrid. After the last few years, the Emmy is due to take place again at the end of September, rewarding the best series and television programs in the United States and England broadcast by TNT Brasil.
São Paulo International Film Festival – October / November
One of the main national awards events, the 45th Mostra de São Paulo is set to repeat the virtual format of 2020, with the films in competition being available for free on the SESC website or other platform and selling tickets with dates of expiration for moviegoers to watch From Home movies. It should take place between late October and early November.
Latin Grammy – November
If all goes well with the world by then, chances are the Latin Grammy delivery will take place again in November and possibly in person, although the date has yet to be confirmed. The show will likely be TNT because it will broadcast the American event.
Festival do Rio – December
Brazil’s most charming film festival has an uncertain date. In 2019, this only happened thanks to the online kitty; in 2020, the event did not happen. In 2021 this is expected to happen, likely in a hybrid format, possibly in December (although it has traditionally been between late September and early October) and is expected to bring together last year’s and current editions.
