|Oscars Moved Back Into Late February For 2011
Posted: March 25, 2010
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Academy Awards are moving back to February.
Awards organizers said Thursday next year's Oscar ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 27. That's about a week earlier than this season's awards show, which was held March 7 to avoid conflicting with the Winter Olympics.
Though the show used to be held in late March, the Oscars have been staged in late February in most recent years to shorten the long Hollywood awards season.
