The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and ABC has postponed the 94th edition of the Oscars by a month. The 2022 award ceremony will now take place on March 27, 2022 which was earlier set for February 27, 2022.
The eligibility period for Academy Awards® consideration will return to the standard December 31 deadline which means, the feature film must have a qualifying release date between March 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021. Also, this year, which is still impacted by the pandemic, eligibility requirements for the 94th Academy Awards will be consistent with the addendums made for the 93rd Awards season.
