The annual luncheon was originally postponed from January 7 to March 11 due to a surge of COVID cases amid the Omicron variant. 

‘The goal of AFI Awards is to bring together the creative community at a private event founded in hugs and handshakes,’ Bob Gazzale, AFI President and CEO, said at the time.

‘Because that goal is not achievable at this time, we will be postponing the event until we can properly celebrate the artists in a manner worthy of the gifts they have given the world.’
