Soderbergh was not your Oscar producer, which is why he may be the right choice for this very unusual year. He and Stacey Sher and Jessie Collins zoomed in to their running partners for the event and implemented enough protocols to enable a mask-free environment for Nominee.
In Sunday’s lead-up, Soderbergh referred to the show as a three-act film. Telecast’s writing staff included “Surviving R. Kelly” filmmaker Dream Hampton and veteran writer-director Richard LaGrewenia (“The Fisher King”). The presenters were referred to as “cast members”.
