The 89th Academy Awards will take place Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre. Nominations will be announced January 24, 2017.
Mark your calendars, Oscar fans: Oscar nominations will be announced January 24, 2017, and the 89th Academy Awards are Oscar Sunday, February 26, 2017.
The Academy announced on Thursday all of the key dates for its 89th Academy Awards season, leading up to the big day on February 26, 2017.
The ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, Calif., through 2033 and will be broadcast on ABC through 2020. The 2017 and 2018 ceremony dates were previously announced last April.
Nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be announced 33 days before Oscar Sunday on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.
It's interesting to note that last year's nominations were announced with 38 days until the ceremony. Pushing the announcement five days gives Academy members more time to vote. It also pushes the nominations announcement until after the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 22, though voting will have already closed.
Members will also have one less day to nominate — 9 days, instead of 10 last year.
