    Hello everyone! So I noticed that everyone calls the upcoming as well as the previous Oscar race by year that the ceremony takes place instead of the year the films come out; i.e for Best Actor 2018, instead of Best Actor 2017, which is the year when the actor’s films have been released and the way that the Oscars are normally dated by on things like Wikipedia, Inside Oscar, Tom’s Oscar book, and how the majority of users used them in the past. It may seem like a small thing, but I just like the way that it has been labeled before because it honors the actual year that the films came out. Please let me know what you think! And if there’s any official GD rule or if there was any change decided by forum users recently about this, please let me know. I’ll understand 🙂

    Yes, for the love of God, yes! It drives me nuts to see references to Best Actor or Best Picture 2018. That determination is two years away. The convention has always been to refer to the year the films came out and not the year of the ceremony. When you talk about Best Picture 1977 you are referring to Annie Hall and NOT Rocky.

    Well to be fair, with the way that Oscar releases have become, the winners could all have their wide releases in 2018, so the name could actually fit 😉
