Los Angeles: Speculations were rife that actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her musician husband Nick Jonas will be presenting at the Oscars 2021 that was held in Los Angeles in two locations on Sunday evening (Monday morning in India). However, the popular couple wasn’t seen during the ceremony. The couple announced the nominations this year in a virtual ceremony earlier this year and stole the show with the chemistry. However, the Oscars’ red carpet certainly missed them walking hand-in-hand.Also Read - Oscars 2021: Chloe Zhao Wins Best Director For Nomadland, Becomes First Woman of Color And Second Woman to Get This Award

Priyanka was absent at the Oscar Awards 2021 because the Academy kept the attendees list very strict this year due to the ongoing coronavirus scare all over the world. The former Miss World, whose film The White Tiger was nominated in the Best Adapted Screenplay category, didn’t fly to the US owing to the pandemic. The actor is currently in the UK due to her work commitments and she thought it was best to avoid travelling during this sensitive time. Further, even though her Netflix movie was nominated in one category, only director Ramin Bahrani was seen from the film’s team at the LA’s Dolby Theatre.

Bahrani though lost the award to Christopher Hampton and Florian Zeller for The Father.
