Oscars 2013 Date Academy AwardsBREAKING: The 85th Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, and the Oscarcast is Sunday, February 24th. The Oscars ceremony will be held in what was once the Kodak Theater, but which they are now calling the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. ABC will televise it live to over 225 countries. Will the Academy take steps to try to liven up what is structurally a snoozefest? They haven’t gotten that far.
