Oscars 2021: Guest is rushed to hospital

Oscars 2021 is hit with a medical emergency as an attendee is taken away from the red carpet by medics in an ambulance

The 2021 Academy Awards were hit with an unexpected medical emergency on Sunday night, when a guest was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken leg.

Pictures from the socially-distanced red carpet showed one attendee being taken away by medics on a stretcher before being drive away in an ambulance.

It came as this year’s Academy Awards saw the introduction of stringent new measures to ensure guests could be kept safe during the Covid pandemic, with much of the ceremony taking place at Union Station.

What’s going on? The 2021 Academy Awards were hit with an unexpected medical emergency on Sunday night, when a guest was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken leg

Images from the red carpet showed a male guest being taken away on a stretcher, with staff loading him into an ambulance to be drive to hospital.

The attendee, whose identity is unknown, appeared to have his foot strapped up, with onlookers saying he’d suffered a broken leg.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for the Academy Awards for comment.

The 93rd Academy Awards marks the first time Tinseltown’s finest have assembled in over a year, for a three-hour show that co-producer Steven Soderbergh has described as being ‘like a movie.’

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is hosting the delayed ceremony at the historic Union Station in Los Angeles, California where socially distanced movie stars can go mask-free while on-camera or seated in the main show room.

Built in 1939, the national historic landmark and its main terminal is 161,000 square feet, creating plenty of room for theatrics on Hollywood’s biggest night. 

Unusual: It was a moment of unexpected drama during the red carpet, which has seen the introduction of stringent new measures due to the Covid pandemic

During normal times, when COVID restrictions haven’t crimped travel, more than 100,000 people a day walk through its halls.

Comparatively the Dolby Theatre, where the glitzy event is usually held, can only seat around 3,300 people which would have created difficulties in putting on an award show amid the pandemic.

But in the spacious station, believed to be large enough to accommodate social distancing requirements with its soaring main hall featuring windows that are 40-feet high, stars have more room to mingle and maneuver.

What a moment: Nomadland triumphed as the drama earned Best Picture in addition to a historic win for Frances McDormand as Best Actress at the 93rd Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night

Sticking to a ‘No Zoom’ policy unlike other shows that have taken place this awards season, Academy organizers have teased a ‘British hub’ for UK actors who are unable to make it in person, as well as another rumored ‘surprise location.’

During a year that saw movie theatres closed due to the pandemic, there were eight new films that did manage to impress Academy voters enough to be in contention for Hollywood’s biggest award, the Oscar for Best Picture (last year there were nine nominees in the category.)
