Academy Sets Oscar Dates for Next Four Years
Next year's ceremony will take place March 4.
Mark your calendar for the next four Oscars dates: ABC and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Tuesday announced that next year’s 90th Academy Awards will be held Sunday, March 4.
In 2019, the date will move back into February, specifically Feb. 24. In 2020, the ceremony is set for Feb. 23, and in 2021, it will take place Feb. 28.
