The Oscars are moving back to February in 2007. The 79th annual Academy Awards will be held Feb. 25 at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre. It will be televised by ABC-TV.
This year's show was moved to the first Sunday in March to avoid going head-to-head against NBC's broadcast of the Winter Olympics' closing ceremonies.
Sid Ganis, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, announced the key Oscar dates on Monday, noting that the February show means nominations and the balloting process will take place earlier than they did this year. Oscar nominees will be announced Jan 23. Final ballots will be mailed Jan. 31 and will be due Feb. 20.
