Oscars in January?

Academy Awards organizers are talking about moving up the date of the show, possibly as early as January. The academy's board of governors has discussed the idea of holding the Oscars earlier. Most recent shows have been held in late February, and a firm date of Feb. 27 has already been set for next year's 83rd Oscars.

For many years, the Oscars were held in late March but were moved to February to shorten what many consider a prolonged Hollywood awards season.
