2014 and 2015 Academy Awards Dates Announced

Posted Monday March 25, 2013 10:15 PM GMT

Movie buffs will have to wait a little longer next year to see who takes home those iconic gold statuettes, as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the date of the 2014 Oscars on Monday (March 25).

The Academy Awards will take place a week later than usual, on Sunday, March 2, 2014, in a move to bypass the Winter Olympic Games, which will be held from February 7-23.

At this time, there is no word on who will host the movie industry’s biggest night, though rumors have placed Justin Timberlake as a possible option.

Also announced on Monday was the date for the 2015 show, which will return to its usual slot, Sunday, February 22, 2015.
