94th Oscars dates announced + new membership rules

Get ready for next award season!

The Academy has announced that the 94th Oscars will take place on Sunday March 27, 2022. The show was originally scheduled for February 27th, but has been pushed back as to not compete with the Winter Olympics and the LA-hosting Super Bowl.

It also announced that it's going back to its standard calendar year eligibility that will end on December 31, making this years calendar only 10 months. It will continue allowing films that were scheduled for theater release but pushed to VOD/streaming to compete.

Nominations will be announced Tuesday, February 8, 2022.

The Academy also announced it will be reducing the number of people invited to join in half this upcoming year, as it has achieved its goal of doubling the number of women and poc among its membership. The number of members since 2015 has almost doubled from 5,800 to almost 10,000, and that degree of growth was considered unsustainable. The Academy will stil continue reaching true equity among its ranks.
