Here's a list of Hollywood awards shows, events cancelled amid COVID-19 surge

Washington [US], January 7 (ANI): Amid the worldwide surge of COVID-19 cases linked to the Omicron variant, award season galas, film festivals, Los Angeles premieres and Broadway shows are postponing or cancelling their in-person shows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the AFI Awards, the BAFTA Tea Party and the Palm Springs International Film Festival's awards gala were among the first in-person events cancelled as the industry grapples with yet another grim stretch of the ongoing pandemic.
The Hollywood Critics Association and Critics Choice Awards soon followed, each deciding to postpone their events (the 5th Annual HCA Film Awards ceremony until February 28), citing the rising number of positive cases linked to omicron.
The 12th annual Academy Governors Awards, which was set for January 15, has also been postponed, while Fox became the first network to cancel their planned New Year's Eve show.
The Sundance Film Festival, an annual staple in Park City, Utah, has shifted to online only, with the variant surge expected to peak during the festival's run from January 20 through January 30.
The Slamdance Film Festival has also decided to forgo the in-person portion of its hybrid event in Park City, which was scheduled to run January 20 to 23, and continue with the virtual portion of the program only, from January 27 to February 6. The new start date, a week later than planned, gives the festival time to shift to the online format.
The Grammy Awards, originally slated for January 31 in Los Angeles, have been postponed to a date still to be determined. And a handful of January Hollywood premieres -- including for the latest movie in the 'Scream' franchise, Hulu's upcoming 'How I Met Your Father' series and the 'Peacemaker' movie -- have cancelled in-person red carpet events.
Live theatrical productions, including those in London's West End, New York City's Broadway district and throughout L.A., have been hit particularly hard with shows going dark.
Several Broadway productions cancelled performances during Christmas week, with 'Jagged Little Pill' and off-Broadway's 'Is There Still Sex in the City?' closing their curtains for good. Eddie Redmayne's 'Cabaret' revival in London took a temporary break, with performances having resumed in late December.
