The pandemic has made some movie lovers doubt if enough movies will be produced in time for Oscar awards. Those who were in the middle of filming had to pause due to the lockdown.

They produced films and streamed them on streaming platforms like YouTube, Netflix, Viki, Viu. Some media firms also created their streaming sites and applications to generate more money.
