Sochi Olympics Forces 2014 Oscars Show to Move to March

LOS ANGELES — Next year's Academy Awards ceremony, the highlight of the annual movie awards season, will be held on March 2, a week later than normal, so as not to clash with the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February, organizers said Monday.

The Winter Olympics are to be held from Feb. 7 to 23, forcing several of Hollywood's big awards shows to shift their traditional dates to avoid a clash with blanket television coverage of the games.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards has already announced that its 2014 ceremony will move back from the end of January to Jan. 18.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which hands out the Oscars, has shifted its awards ceremony in the past to avoid competition from the Winter Olympics.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
