Oscar 2019: Awards Show–February 24, 2019

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) announced the dates for the 91st Oscars, which will be broadcast by ABC on February 24, 2019.

The Oscar Awards, which were held on the first Sunday of March this year so as not to conflict with the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics in February, will move back to the traditional late February spot on the calendar next year.

Nominations voting will begin Monday, January 7, and close a week later on Monday, January 14.

Nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 22, which is comparable to this season, when the nominations were announced on January 23.

But final voting will start a week earlier on the calendar than was the case this past season. For the 2019 Oscars, the final voting will start on Tuesday,  Feb. 12, and close on Tuesday, February 19.

The Academy’s annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon will be held Monday, February 4, and its Scientific and Technical Awards will take place February 9.
