Published

The 93rd Academy Awards will take place today, but it won’t look like the normal awards ceremony.

The awards will take place in multiple locations – and unlike recent ceremonies like the Golden Globes and the Emmys, the Oscars have asked nominees to attend in person.

Best picture: The Father, Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Minari, Judas and the Black Messiah, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal, Nomadland.

In a statement to CNN, a propmaker who worked with Halls back in 20-19 says that while working on Hulu’s “Into the Dark” the assistant director neglected to hold safety meetings and consistently failed to announce the presence of a firearm on set.

These new details follow the court identifying that Halls was in fact the assistant director who handed Baldwin the loaded gun on set.
