Voting for the Oscars kicks off on Feb. 12 and runs for eight days before ending at 5 p.m. PT on Feb. 19. Thirty-six hours before the ballots go live online on Tuesday, the BAFTA Awards will take place in London Sunday evening (Feb. 10). That is the same schedule as last year. In 2017, these precursor prizes were held on the day before final balloting for the Academy Awards began while in 2016 the BAFTAs were handed out on the third day of voting.
The cinematographers also weigh in with their awards this weekend. Four other guilds (makeup artists & hair stylists, sound editors, sound mixers and writers) are to announce their winners during Oscar voting. The costume designers chime in hours after the deadline for academy members to cast their ballots.
The 91st annual Academy Awards will air live on ABC on February 24. Below, we detail these key dates. Note: Winners events are in gold
