Color me surprised.
The 2022 Oscars will be held on March 27, 2022, much later than I thought or anyone else did.
The cut off is still December 31st. So without Golden Globes, there will now be three full months til the actual show.
Why? Beats me. The original date for the 2022 show was supposed to be February 27th. With the Globes gone, I thought it would make sense to move up to late January or early February. Wasn’t the idea to get this thing done sooner rather than later?
But no one asked me! Now by the time we have the Oscars, the movies will be quite past their expiration date. Obviously, the Academy and ABC know what they’re doing. So we’ll just go along for the ride!
But please, back in the Dolby Theater, and please get a host, kids! Jimmy Kimmel has that tux ready. Let him use it!
