Oscars calendar: Deadlines and dates for PGA, SAG, DGA, BAFTAs, …

Prior to final balloting for the Oscars beginning on Feb. 6, we will have heard from two key guilds — the Producers and the Screen Actors — as well as those of the art directors, film editors and visual effect wizards.

The Directors Guild ballots are due the same Friday that Oscar voting starts with these precursor prizes handed out the following day. And on the Sunday (Feb. 8), the British are coming with their results (just hours before the Grammys.) 

Valentine’s Day weekend will be a busy one, with five groups doling out awards: cinematographers, makeup/hairstylists, sound editors, sound mixers and writers. The final guild — the costume designers — doesn’t announce until several hours after Oscar voting closes on Feb. 17. 

As always, the Indie Spirits are on the Saturday before Oscar Sunday, Feb. 22. 

Below, we detail all of these key dates.
