Academy Sets Oscar Dates for Next Four Years

Next year’s ceremony will take place March 4.

Mark your calendar for the next four Oscars dates: ABC and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that next year’s 90th Academy Awards will be held Sunday, March 4.

In 2019, the date will move back into February, specifically Feb. 24. In 2020, the ceremony is set for Feb. 23, and in 2021, it will take place Feb. 28.

Next year’s Oscars date, which had been previously announced, is moving into March to stay clear of the Winter Olympics, which will hold its closing-night ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Feb. 25.

The key dates for the 90th Oscars are similar to those of the past Oscars season, except for the start of final voting, which will begin Feb. 20, a week later than final voting began this past Oscar season, Feb. 13.

The key dates for the upcoming awards season follow:

Nov. 11: Governors Awards

Jan. 5: Nominations voting opens

Jan. 12: Nominations voting closes

Jan. 23: Oscar nominations announcement

Feb. 5: Oscar nominees luncheon

Feb. 10: Scientific and Technical Awards
