Oscars to be held at usual time

Oscars to be held at usual time

The 2012 Oscars will not be weeks earlier than usual, as had been widely speculated – a move that would have upended Hollywood’s crowded awards season.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said its board of governors had determined the date of the 84th Academy Awards “will not be significantly earlier than the now-traditional last Sunday in February”.

But the statement left open the possibility of an earlier Oscar date in subsequent years, saying “the academy’s staff and board will continue to evaluate the advantages and challenges associated with such a change”.

The exact date of the 2012 Oscar ceremony has yet to be chosen.
