Oscar Nomination Date Pushed Up To Jan. 10

Posted:

Academy Awards organizers have moved up a key date in the upcoming season of Hollywood film honors.

Nominations for the 85th Oscars will be announced Jan. 10 — five days earlier than the academy previously announced. 

Oscar overseers say the switch will give the academy's nearly 6,000 members more time to see nominated films before the Feb. 24 awards ceremony.

The date change puts the Oscar nominations three days before Hollywood's second-biggest film awards — the Golden Globes, whose ceremony takes place Jan. 13. 

Oscar nominations typically come out after the Globes. The earlier date for Oscar nominations could steal a bit of the thunder from the Globes, which are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
