Oscars not moving earlier, staying in late February
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There was a lot of talk last awards season about the Academy Awards moving to an earlier date on the calendar to shorten the lengthy awards race and compete with the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards and other events that try to steal some of Oscar’s thunder.
Turns out it was just that: Talk.
Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, on Tuesday revealed that next year’s ceremony will be held on Feb. 26 … essentially the same time frame as the last two years.
Not earlier. Not later. The same. But they’ll change the hosts, right?
Nominations for the 84th Oscars will be revealed on Jan. 24.
