The 95th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2023, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and ABC announced on Friday.

As always, the ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood and will air live on ABC in more than 200 territories around the world.

The Oscars haven’t been held this early since 2020, when the 92nd ceremony took place on Feb. 9. Conflicts with the NFL playoffs and the Olympics tend to force it to be held later than that.

The Academy and ABC also announced other key dates for the season leading up to the Oscars. Among them, preliminary voting for categories which announce shortlists prior to nominations will take place between Dec. 12 and Dec. 15, 2022, with the shortlist announcement coming on Dec. 21. Meanwhile, Oscar nomination voting will span Jan. 12 through Jan. 17, 2023, with the nominations announcement set for Jan. 24. And final voting will be open from March 2 through March 7, 2023, wrapping five days before the Oscars ceremony.
