Everyone will be tested, and there will be a health safety team on site throughout the evening.
In a note to more than 200 nominees, the producers of the show said in part (quote): "We are going to great lengths to provide a safe and ENJOYABLE evening for all of you in person, as well as for all the millions of film fans around the world, and we feel the virtual thing will diminish those efforts." Nominees and their guests will gather at a courtyard in the Union rail station, while other show elements will be held live inside the Dolby Theatre some 8 miles away.
Normally, hundreds of the world's top movie stars would gather in the 3,400-seat theater for a live show preceded by a red carpet packed with photographers and camera crews.

State Sen. Andrew Brenner (R-OH) logged into a public Zoom meeting, part of which was to consider distracted driving legislation, while clearly seated in his vehicle’s driver’s seat.

Continuing with the ongoing trend of flashy backgrounds during video calls, Google Meet will soon be adding the feature to replace backgrounds with a video. While you won't be able to use your own videos as backgrounds, Google will offer three options to begin with: a classroom, party, and forest, promising further additions later, reported Mashable. Google has allowed Meet users to add custom backgrounds to their video calls since October 2020, but this is the first time they've included videos in this option. This new video background feature will arrive in the coming weeks. It's yet another feature that's making the platform look even more similar to its competitor Zoom. Video backgrounds have been available as virtual backgrounds through Zoom for the last year. Meanwhile, Google is also rolling out some other features for Meet, including the ability to pin yourself as a tile, hide entirely, or pin multiple video feeds at once to customise what you're looking at during a meeting.
