As Predicted Here: 2014 Oscars On March 2nd


Just as I told you a few weeks ago, the 2014 Academy Awards will be held a little late– on March 2nd. That’s because of the Winter Olympics wiping out the month of February. Everything else has been pushed back into January including the Grammy Awards. The last thing you’ll see on TV before the Olympics will be the Super Bowl from New York on February 2nd. Rest at ease, the Oscars return to February 22, 2015. All the Oscar prognostcators already know who won those awards.

There’s a silver lining to the moved date for next year. The nominations announcement will move back to after the Golden Globes, which will held on January 12th. The deadline for voting will be January 8th. So get ready. Time waits for no one.

here’s my original story about all these dates:
