It may feel as though the Oscars have just passed, but Will Smith slapping the sonic coins out of Chris Rock is still being heard all over the world for which Smith signed in his resignation and was banned for 10 years from attending the Oscars. But other than that, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is already looking to the future as the date for the 95th Oscars ceremony has been set at ABC. 

The upcoming Academy Awards will officially take place on Sunday, 12 March 2023, which they will broadcast live on ABC in more than 200 countries worldwide. And just as it had been held every year, the event will yet again take place at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. The ceremony will mark the second year in a row that the Academy Awards have taken place in March, with this past year’s edition occurring on March 27. 

The 95th Oscars also has its own set of rules and conditions just like every other Oscar ceremony. The submission deadline for general entry categories for the 2023 Oscars is November 15. Preliminary voting will begin on December 12, and the shortlists will be announced on December 21. The eligibility period will end on December 31, and nominations voting will take place between 12 January and 17 January 2023. The nominations will then be announced on 24 January 2023, with final voting will end on 2 March 2023. It is also important to note that all dates are subject to change at any given time. 

Hollywood is still slowly but steadily recovering from the 2022 Oscars, which may have been the most controversial to date in light of Will Smith infamously slapping Chris Rock on stage and then winning best actor for his role in “King Richard” just moments later.
