Entertainment And News

As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the United States, many places and organizations are choosing to cancel events and activities to help slow the spread.

Even Hollywood has been affected by these cancellations, and hopefully, being proactive will help keep people as healthy as possible.

Here's what's been canceled in Hollywood so far:

1. Riverdale has shut down filming for the time being.

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. issued a statement saying that Riverdale had stopped filming in Vancouver because a member of the show's team had been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

“We have been made aware that a team member from ‘Riverdale,’ which is produced in Vancouver, was recently in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. The team member is currently receiving medical evaluation,” the statement said. “We are working closely with the appropriate authorities and health agencies in Vancouver to identify and contact all individuals who may have come into direct contact with our team member. The health and safety of our employees, casts and crews is always our top priority. We have and will continue to take precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world. Out of an abundance of caution, production on ‘Riverdale’ is currently suspended.”

2. The Amazing Race will no longer film. 

Given that The Amazing Race involves international travel, it's no surprise that in February, CBS chose to pull the plug on the season that was currently in progress. 

"All contestants and production staff are in the process of returning home," the network said in a statement in February. "At this time, no Racers or anyone on the production team traveling with them have contracted the virus, or shown symptoms, and we are not aware of anyone being exposed to it. Out of an abundance of caution, everyone involved in the show will continue to be monitored when they return home. The health and well-being of the Racers and the production team are our top priorities."

3. Survivor has been postponed until later this year. 

Survivor is another reality show that has been affected by COVID-19. CBS has announced that Survivor has been postponed until May 19, when they hope to continue filming — especially since it was scheduled to take place in Fiji, and the current risks involved in international travel has put a serious wrench in production.

4. The Kid's Choice Awards has also been postponed. 

Earlier this week, Nickelodeon announced this year's awards, which were set to be hosted by Chance The Rapper, would not be going on as planned later this month, though they do hope to reschedule.

"The Kids’ Choice Awards scheduled for March 22, 2020, in Los Angeles is being postponed in consideration of the safety and well-being of every person involved with the show, which is our top priority. We will have further information about a new date in the future," said Nickelodeon's statement.  

5. The GLAAD Awards have been canceled. 

As of this week, the GLAAD Awards, which were to be held in New York later this month, have officially been canceled, too. 

“Given GLAAD’s long-standing commitment to the safety of our members, sponsors, and guests, the GLAAD Media Awards will no longer take place on March 19th in New York City,” GLAAD CCO Rich Ferraro said. “The team at GLAAD has been in communication with the City of New York and is following the latest recommendations from Governor Cuomo. We were planning to unveil a historic get-out-the-vote campaign at the event because everything is at stake for LGBTQ Americans this election year, and are hopeful that the program and GLAAD’s ongoing work to fight against anti-LGBTQ discrimination will continue to be supported and funded. Since the event is canceled, our advocacy work will experience a loss of funding and we encourage community members and allies to consider becoming a GLAAD member to ensure this work continues.”

6. Paleyfest 2020 has been postponed.

This year's Paleyfest, which was set to focus on shows including Dawson's Creek and Curb Your Enthusiasm has been postponed, although a new date for the festival has yet to be set.

“Based on the most recent news and out of an abundance of concern, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s PaleyFest. While we were looking forward to presenting another stellar lineup of PaleyFest events, the safety of our event participants, guests, and staff is the highest priority," said Paleyfest's statement.

7. Movie releases are being postponed as well. 

Several movie releases scheduled for this spring have been postponed, with no new release dates on the schedule as of yet. So far, these movies include Mulan, A Quiet Place 2, Fast and Furious 9, Peter Rabbit 2, and No Time To Die.

It's definitely a bummer that all of these events had to have been canceled, but hopefully, it will help keep everyone a bit healthier — and we'll be on the lookout for new dates for everything that's been postponed.
