Egyptian artist Mac Toot pays homage to the Golden age of Egyptian Cinema through his new photography project. The artist obviously has a soft spot for old Egyptian films and has decided to grace us with these photographs that were taken at the exact same sites that his favorite cinematic shots were taken. Not only that, but the artist also photoshops the actual shot (with himself in the picture) into the new one (with the original actors). So, if you’re down for a nostalgic ride full of reminiscing and sentimentality, by all means, SCROLL DOWN:

According to a report from Variety, the Oscars 2021 will be held in-person telecast and not virtually!
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has pushed the 73rd Academy Awards ceremony to the 15th of April next year, because by spring the theaters would be open again; allowing more movies to compete in the awards.
“The Oscars in-person telecast will happen,” Variety said on Tuesday, quoting a representative from the Academy.
“The Academy has done a walkthrough of the Dolby recently to see all the multiple options,” the report added, citing an awards publicist familiar with the situation.
The academy will of course be forced to cut down the number of attendees.
