The Academy and ABC have announced that next year’s Oscars ceremony will take place on March 12, 2023 — two weeks earlier than this year’s show, which was held on March 27.

The 95th Annual Academy Awards will air live on ABC in over 200 territories worldwide from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The eligibility period will end on Dec. 31, though the submission deadline for general entry categories is Nov. 15, with preliminary voting starting Dec. 12 and shortlists announced on Dec. 21.

Oscar nomination voting will take place between Jan. 12 and Jan. 17, 2023, and the Academy will unveil the nominations on Jan. 24, with final voting taking place between March 2 and March 7, 2023.
