Online streaming site iQiyi confirmed with the Global Times on Sunday night that the platform will not broadcast the 88th Academy Awards early on Monday, following viral online posts that claimed the live Web broadcast for this year’s Oscars had been cancelled dermes.

A Sina Weibo user who claimed to be a former employee of popular film review site said that the live Web broadcast for the 88th Academy Awards had been cancelled. Previous reports said that iQiyi would air a live bilingual broadcast of the Oscars in the Chinese mainland.

In 2014, the Oscars were carried by several streaming video services in China, including Sohu, Sina and iQiyi.

Speculation on Sina Weibo attributed the cancellation of the broadcast to the nomination of two films, Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom and Racing Extinction. Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom is one of this year’s nominees for Best Documentary Feature. The film depicts the Ukrainian revolution from the perspectives of diverse groups of people, according to the Website of the awards’ presenter, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The song "Manta Ray" from Racing Extinction, a film directed by Louie Psihoyos, was nominated for Best Original Song. Psihoyos is well known in China for his film The Cove, which depicted the hunting of rare species in China and was awarded the Academy Award for Best Docu?mentary Feature in 2010.

Stricken with polio as a child, Perlman painfully walked with the aid of two crutches to a chair in the middle of the stage. He carefully laid the crutches on the floor, loosened the clasps of his leg braces, extended one leg forward and the other underneath his chair, picked up his instrument and nodded to the conductor to begin.

But something went wrong. After only seconds of playing bear market, one of the strings on his violin broke. The snap was a gunfire reverberating in the auditorium. The audience immediately knew what happened and fully expected the concert to be suspended until another string or even another instrument could be found.

But Perlman surprised them. He quietly composed himself, closed his eyes and then signaled the conductor to begin again. The orchestra resumed where they had left off and Perlman played on three strings. He played with passion , and power. All the time he worked out new fingering in his mind to compensate for the missing string. A work that few people could play well on four strings Perlman accomplished on three.

When he finished, an awesome silence hung in the room. And then as one, the crowd rose to their feet and cheered wildly. Applause burst forth from every corner of the auditorium as fans showed deep appreciation for his talent and his courage.

Perlman smiled and wiped the sweat from this brow. Then he raised his bow to quiet the crowd and said , not boastfully, but in a quiet hospitality and tourism management, pensive, reverent tone, "You know, sometimes it is the artist's task to find out how much music you can still make with what you have left." Polio left him with less stamina than he had before, yet he went on. Playing a concert on three strings is not unlike his philosophy of life -he persevered with what he had left and still made music.

And isn't that true with us? Our task is to find out how much music we can still make with what we have left. How much good we can still do. How much joy we can still share. For I'm convinced that the world city&guilds, more than ever, needs the music only you and I can make.
