Final voting for the Oscars kicks off on February 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 BAFTAs took place in London Sunday evening (Feb. 10). Last year, these precursor prizes were likewise handed out two days in advance of Academy Awards balloting. In 2017, they were the day before voting began and in 2016 they were given out on the third day of voting.
We’ve already hear from 8 of the 13 guilds: actors, art directors, casting directors, cinematographers, directors, film editors, producers,and visual effects wizards. Four guilds (makeup artists & hair stylists, sound editors, sound mixers and writers) will hold their awards ceremonies during the voting period for the Oscars. The costume designers weigh in with their picks hours after voting ends.
