For the first time since 1969, Hong Kong movie fans will not be able to watch the Academy Awards live on TV.
Do Not Split, has been nominated for an Oscar in the short-subject documentary category. The 35-minute documentary centres around Hong Kong anti-government demonstrations of 2019.
Media reports claim that Beijing authorities had instructed mainland media outlets to downplay the Oscars, which is likely to have had a knock-on effect in Hong Kong.
And the National Security Law is casting a shadow on the city’s film industry, once considered the Hollywood of the East.

Al Jazeera’s Divya Gopalan reports from Hong Kong.
