Recently several of the major Awards groups posted their calendars for the 2011-2012 Film Awards season. For the most part this Oscar season is going to look very similar to year’s past. The Oscars stay in late February and the Globes will be in mid-January with 6 weeks separating the two. Oscar nominations are coming to us in late January as per usual.
The purpose of this post was dual purpose – to present the full Awards schedule and to point to the new Awards Calendar page which can be found above under the Oscars tab. That calendar will continually be updated as more Awards bodies announce their winners.
Here is the schedule so far:
The 84th Academy Awards
Thursday, December 1, 2011: Official Screen Credits forms due

Friday, January 13, 2012: Nominations polls close 5 p.m. PT
