The red carpet has barely been rolled back and already The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences is giving us something to look forward to.

The eagerly anticipated Academy Awards (try saying that five times fast!) was delayed this year until the first Sunday of March so as to avoid conflicting with the closing ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

With all skis out of the way, the Oscars can now return to a more regular date in 2019.

The Academy has announced that the 91st edition of the awards will take place on the 24th of February.

Awards season will officially kick off on the 18th of November this year when the Academy hosts the Governors Awards.

Festivities will continue in January as nomination voting runs from the 7th to the 14th and nominations are officially announced on the 22nd.

Final voting will then commence on the 12th of February and conclude on the 19th before the big day on the 24th.

Hope you’ve cleared your schedules.
