2018 Oscars calendar updated: Academy Awards voting ends on Jan. 12, nominations announced on Jan. 23

Members of the motion picture academy only have until 5 p.m. PT on Friday (Jan. 12) to cast their Oscar nomination ballots. The nominations will be revealed on Jan. 23 and final voting will take place for eight days beginning on Feb. 20. The 90th annual Academy Awards are set for March 4.

Oscar nominations voting began on Jan. 5, two days before the 75th annual Golden Globes on Sunday. On Thursday, the Critics’ Choice Awards, which are bestowed by the Broadcast Television Journalists Assn., took place.

Before Oscar balloting began, the art directors, casting directors, film editors, and writers unveiled their slate of contenders while the makeup artists & hairstylists and producers did so on the first day of Academy Awards voting. The cinematographers had their say on Tuesday while the costume designers and sound mixers reveal their picks on Wednesday. And on Thursday, we heard from the members of the Directors Guild of America as to their choices for the best helmers of the year. The visual effects wizards announce their nominees on Jan. 15 while the sound editors don’t chime in till the end of the month.

Note: Winners events are in gold while nomination announcements are italicized.
