The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences releases new dates for the upcoming 2023 Oscars, including the broadcast date for the ceremony.
The date for next year’s Oscars ceremony has been announced by the Academy. The 2022 Academy Awards took place on March 27, where winners included Will Smith, Jane Campion, Ariana DeBose, and Kenneth Branagh, while Dune took home the most awards of the night due to its wins in the technical categories, and CODA defeated Power of the Dog for Best Picture, winning for its screenplay and supporting actor Troy Kotsur. Perhaps the most memorable and discussed moment of the night was in the most unfortunate and incidental manner when Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife moments before he won Best Actor. Smith has been banned from the Oscars for a decade and will not be presenting the Best Actress category next year, as it is per tradition with the Oscars.
Now, per Oscars, the 95th Academy Awards will take place March 12, 2023, with the nominations announced January 24. The Academy has also announced key dates, including eligibility periods, final voting, and special events, such as the Oscar Luncheon and the Governors Awards, where Samuel L. Jackson, Elaine May, Liv Ullmann, and Danny Glover were bestowed honorary Oscars this year. Key dates for the Oscars schedule can be read below:

Aside from the slap incident that overshadowed the rest of this year’s ceremony, the Oscars have been deep into several controversies that were implemented in the show in an attempt to boost audience viewership. This included the contests of Oscars Fan Favorite and Cheer Moment, where Army of the Dead and Zack Snyder’s Justice League won, and the removal of eight technical categories from the live telecast to make room for those moments. They also removed multiple musical numbers to shorten the ceremony time. The plans ultimately proved unsuccessful as ratings resulted in the second-lowest Oscars in history and the ceremony lasted almost four hours. While it is uncertain what next year’s show will look like, there are many films vying for recognition at the awards, including Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Damien Chazelle’s Babylon, and Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans. Time will tell what the nominations will be for the 2023 Oscars, but there is now an official date.
