Many award ceremonies, including the Academy Awards, BAFTAs and Golden Globes, have been pushed back due to uncertainties from the coronavirus. However, the guild did not specifically mention a reason behind the delay.

In June, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) shifted the Oscars 2021 date from 28 February to 25 April.

The British Academy followed by announcing 11 April as the new date for BAFTAs.

The new date for Golden Globes ceremony, to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, is 28 February.

Last year, Sam Mendes' war drama 1917 nabbed the trophy for the Best Feature Film, besting Parasite, The Irishman, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and Jojo Rabbit
