Academy Picks Dates for Next Three Oscars

Academy Picks Dates for Next Three Oscars

The Academy and the ABC Network are sticking with February dates for the 88th (February 28, 2016) and 89th (February 26, 2017) Oscarcasts, but are hitting March 4th for 2018. There’s always debate about how late the Oscars are, following too many other award shows in the season, from the Critics Choice and Golden Globes to such Guild awards such as SAG. Ratings for the 2015 Oscars hosted by Neil Patrick Harris were down by 15 per cent.
