Impact of the pandemic on award shows

The year has witnessed a lot of cancellations in terms of entertainment moments. Whether it be anticipated movies or award ceremonies, so far, it’s been an unbearable situation for everyone.

And considering that, each upcoming event is trying to maintain the audience interest with changes in organizing the shows. And 2020 American Music Awards is another example of that. Even many film festivals have moved to online streaming services now. And it will continue to happen unless there’s a new vaccine in the future.
