impact: Hosting of Oscars
2022 moved to March
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has decided to delay the 2022
edition of the Oscars by a month.
The award ceremony, which was earlier set for February 27, will now be held on March 27,
2022, the AMPAS said in a statement.
The eligibility period for Academy Awards consideration, however, will return to the standard
December 31 deadline.
For the previous edition, the Academy made changes to the eligibility, extending it until
February 28, 2021 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The rule change had enabled movies such as "The United States vs. Billie Holiday" and "Judas
and the Black Messiah" to be considered for the awards. Click Here
