2020 Oscars calendar of key dates: Annie Awards voting starts January 1, ends Jan. 12, ceremony Jan. 25

Voting for the 47th annual Annie Awards kicks off on January 1 and runs until Jan. 12. The ceremony takes place on Jan. 25, five days before final balloting begins for the Oscars. Seven of the last 10 Annie champs have lined up with the Oscars: “Up” (2010), “Rango” (2012), “Frozen” (2014), “Inside Out” (2016), “Zootopia” (2017), “Coco” (2018) and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (2019).

The Hollywood chapter of the International Animated Film Association announced the Annie Awards nominations on Dec. 2. “Frozen II” and “Missing Link” lead the roster of contenders with eight nominations each followed by “Klaus” with a lucky seven. Our predicted Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature, “Toy Story 4,” reaped a respectable six bids as did another sequel, “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.”

All of the key dates on the Oscars calendar are detailed below. Winners events are in gold while nomination announcements are italicized.
