The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and ABC on Thursday announced the 94th Oscars ceremony will move to Sunday, March 27, 2022. The show, which will air live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, was originally scheduled for Feb. 27.
The eligibility period for Academy Awards consideration will return to the standard Dec. 31 deadline: A feature film must have a qualifying release date between March 1, 2021, and Dec. 31, 2021. 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 and can be found here. Complete 94th Awards rules and specialty category submission deadlines will be announced in June. Following this year, the Academy intends to expand the qualifying requirements for the 95th Awards.
The 94th Oscars will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC and in more than 200 territories worldwide.
