OSCARS: 2014 Academy Awards Set For March 2

The later date for 2014 is not a surprise, with the January 16 nominations announcement coming a week later that the just-completed Oscars. The shift comes thanks to the Winter Olympics being held in Sochi, Russia from February 7-23. If the Academy had kept its traditional last-Sunday-of-February slot, the 86th Oscars would have conflicted directly with the Closing Ceremony. With no such obstacle in 2015, the 87th Oscars will return to its normal routine and is set for February 22. Here’s the official release with all the dates:

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the ABC Television Network today announced the dates for the 86th and 87th Oscar® presentations. The 86th and 87th Academy Awards® will air live on ABC on Oscar Sunday, March 2, 2014, and February 22, 2015, respectively.

Key dates for the Awards season are:

Saturday, November 16, 2013: The Governors Awards

Monday, December 2, 2013: Official Screen Credits due

Friday, December 27, 2013: Nominations voting begins

Wednesday, January 8, 2014: Nominations voting ends 5 p.m. PT

Thursday, January 16, 2014: Oscar nominations announced

Why The Oscars Aren’t Moving Earlier – Analysis


I hate to say I TOLDJA but the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences today announced their Oscar season schedule for 2014 and , predictably, with the Winter Olympics and the Super Bowl taking every Sunday in Feburary , they have moved the Oscar show to the first Sunday in March , the 2nd as forecasted here on in a column on March 4th. I also predicted it would give them the opportunity to allow more time for seeing movies by moving the nominations back a week from where they were this year on January 10th (two weeks earlier than usual), and the Academy has done just that, moving the voting period back to where it has been in previous years with ballots going out December 27 and due back on January 8th (for 2013 ballots were mailed Dec 17 and came back Jan 4).

There were complaints from members that there just wasn’t enough time to see all the movies and then vote in that two week Holiday period, especially with so many other distractions of the season. This gives the Academy a lot more breathing room in making nominations but still allows for a six week period between the announcement and the due date of February 25 for final ballots. This is important because it gives the public a lot more time to see the nominated movies and pleases exhibitors who have two extra weeks to exploit those nominations. Clearly it’s a strategy that paid off this year with most of the nine Best Picture nominees being released in November and December (although eventual Best Picture winner Argo came out in October), and six, almost seven of them, grossed well over $100 million as opposed to only one film, The Help in the previous year. In the six week nominations period Silver Linings Playbook actually doubled its gross, a feat credited to its strong showing with Oscar.

What wasn’t expected in today’s announcement was that the Academy would also put to rest any speculation about moving the 2015 show earlier into January by breaking tradition and announcing their show date of February 22nd for that year as well. Despite my consistent reports here that the Acad’s Board Of Governors has “no taste” for jumping to an earlier date, other media keep speculating they will do just that. That has never been the case, at least according to the Academy execs to whom I have spoken. Contractually there are restrictions the Academy has in that regard with their ABC broadcast partner who has a say in all this too.

With improved ratings for the Seth MacFarlane-hosted telecast this year the Academy obviously feels comfortable in not rocking the boat and sending awards season into a tailspin by moving any earlier so we can calm the speculation for at least a couple of years, and members will have more time to do what really counts - see the movies before they have to vote.

I did a lot of googling, that it seems to be mentioned is Nov 29, 2012. It has to be on COH because that came up. Indywire on a March 05, 2013 page directed me to one of the same date in 2012, I think that it is still in the works. Highly secretive.
