AFI awards pushed further due to Coronavirus


AFI Awards luncheon delayed another year due to the surge of the spread of COVID19. The authorities said the show will be on when they can celebrate the artists in a ‘worthy manner.’

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the event, at which AFI’s picks for the year’s 10 best films and 10 best TV shows are honoured, was set to take place on Friday, January 7, 2022. In a statement, AFI said, “In response to the rising concerns over current health conditions, the organization will reschedule the much-anticipated event for a later date.”

“The goal of AFI Awards is to bring together the creative community at a private event founded in hugs and handshakes. Because that goal is not achievable at this time, we will be postponing the event until we can properly celebrate the artists in a manner worthy of the gifts they have given the world,” added AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, this announcement comes after the cancelation of the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s awards gala, which was set for January 6, and the postponement of the BAFTA Tea, which was set for January 8.
