OSCAR CALENDAR

OSCAR CALENDAR

The Oscar Calendar is an ongoing project intended as a service for those who want to follow the awards buzz all year round. Here you can find information about precursor awards, industry guilds, critics groups and film festivals. I have also included film release dates (both US and a few international), and information about when Academy press announcements and eligibility lists for the technical and genre categories have historically been delivered. For those who follow the animated short and live action short categories, the Academy’s approved qualifying film festivals are marked below with the notation “(Shorts Qualifier)”.

I welcome corrections and additions, which you can leave in the comments or email to nevertooearlymoviepredictions@gmail.com.

For those who don’t want to scroll all the way down, the next Academy Awards Ceremony will be held on February 24, 2013, and the nominations will be announced on January 10, 2013.
