The original date for the 2021 awards was planned to take place on January 31st, but due to an increase in Covid-19 cases, the date was postponed to March 14th. In order to ensure proper health precautions during this event, masks were worn by all attending artists, and they were seated at small socially distanced tables. Masks were only removed by some artists when receiving awards, or performing. An outdoor location was also utilized to guarantee maximum safety, and there was no large audience.
