2020 Oscars calendar of key dates: WGA Awards nominations on January 6, Academy Awards nominations voting ends Jan. 7

This year’s window of voting for the Oscar nominations is the shortest in the 92-year history of the Academy Awards. The academy turned on the website last Thursday (Jan. 2) and will shut it down on Tuesday evening. On Monday, two guilds will weigh in with their picks for the best of the year: the Writers Guild of America and the Visual Effects Society.  And hours before Oscar voting ends on Jan. 7, both the Directors Guild of America and the Producers Guild of America will reveal their rosters of contenders as will the BAFTAs.

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