Academy Awards officially not moving to January for 2014 and 2015

Next year's show will take place on March 2, 2014

No doubt hoping to end any continuing speculation about the Academy Awards moving to January, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revealed the key dates for the 2014 season and Oscar isn't coming early.

Does the 2014 SAG Awards date hint at a January Academy Awards?

Does the 2014 SAG Awards date hint at a January Academy Awards?

It seems crazy, but is it?

Every four years the Winter Olympics take a major bite out of the February Primetime television schedule as tens of millions of Americans cuddle up in front of the tube to watch bobsled racing, ski jumping and curling in hopes of U.S.A. taking home the gold.  It's always been something of a pain for awards show schedulers, but beyond a late dater date for Oscar, everything usually worked itself out.  More recently, however, changing dates for the games have found major awards season players trying to find safe haven with a night or weekend all to themselves.  Throw in competition from the Super Bowl, Grammys and Sundance and the first two months of 2014 become something of a logistical nightmare. The first major awards extravaganza to put a stake in the ground?  The 20th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Tina Fey says 'no way' to hosting Oscars next year

Who will the Academy court for the gig?

Wanna host the 2014 Oscars?

Just a day after this year's controversial host Seth MacFarlane said there was "no way" he would do the gig again, "30 Rock" mastermind Tina Fey has expressed a similar disinterest in hosting next year's Academy Awards.

Just a few weeks ago, Fey and co-host Amy Poehler received rave reviews for emceeing the Golden Globes, but it appears that an Oscar-centric encore isn't in store.

Eight lessons learned from the 2012-2013 Awards Season

Let's keep Washington politics out of Oscar, shall we?

An unlikely awards season ended where it started.I had the pleasure of attending the first public screening of "Argo" at the Telluride Film Festival in September. Five months later, "Argo" pulled off a historical comeback to win the Best Picture prize many of us predicted it would take that sunny Labor day weekend. In the half a year between those moments, Hollywood managed to release six $100 million-plus-grossing best picture nominees (unthinkable at the beginning of the season) and make past controversies such as Melissa Leo's infamous for your consideration ads seem as inconsequential as a playground fight between two 5-year-olds. This season was serious and a battle of mammoth egos that won't long be forgotten. Thankfully, however, there are always lessons for pundits, studio executives, their likely still-stressed-out consultants and, most importantly, the powers at be at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Oscars' Seth MacFarlane says 'No Way' to the idea of hosting again

'Family Guy' and 'Ted' creator has a full plate

Seth MacFarlane brought some new blood to the Academy Awards this year, to mixed reviews. Although ratings were strong, there doesn't seem to be much hope that the "Family Guy" and "Ted" creator will be seen emceeing the show again next year.

In case you missed it: Andy Samberg's hilarious Spirit Awards monologue

Was this the best monologue of the weekend?

There is a tremendous amount of debate today about whether Seth McFarlane did a good or bad job in his inaugural turn as Oscar host Sunday night, but no one is arguing over Andy Samberg's hosting performance Saturday afternoon. Samberg was fantastic as this year's Independent Spirit Awards host, but you probably didn't catch his work since IFC broadcast it at 10 PM on Saturday night.

Jennifer Lawrence admits she just had a shot before speaking to the press backstage at the 85th Academy Awards.

Jennifer Lawrence once again proves why she's freakin' awesome

A rare great backstage Q&A

Not surprising to anyone who's spent more than five minutes with her, Jennifer Lawrence's honest and funny personality shined through as she spoke to the press backstage at the 85th Academy Awards Sunday night.  The "Silver Linings Playbook" actress handled her fall before accepting her first Oscar with self-deprecating humor and class on stage.  Lawrence continued to charm as she took some typically silly questions from the international journalists during the traditional post Q&A. In particular, her "process" of getting dressed for the show is awesome.  You can watch the best of her remarks in the embedded video below. If you're experiencing any Oscar show hangover today, it should absolutely do the trick and perk you right back up. Enjoy.

Plus: What did you think was the biggest upset of the night?

Ah, Oscar. You never fail to disappoint and 2013 was clearly was the best and worst of times.  An incredibly uneven show with a host whose 15 minute monologue/intro/whatever you want to call it wasn't the best choice. Thankfully, however, there were some great individual musical numbers, some surprising upsets ("Django Unchained's" great night) and none other than the First Lady of the United States announcing best picture.  HitFix's editorial team has given the show a thorough review and recognized the best and worst of the 85th Academy Awards.

Oh yeah, it wasn't live

Santa Monica, CA - Every year awards season ends with a Sunday night Academy Awards extravaganza, but for 28 years Oscar's little brother the Independent Spirit Awards have been having their own party the Saturday before.  Once again, Film Independent decided not to broadcast the show live and instead taped the afternoon proceedings to air at 10 PM on both coasts (sigh).  Happily for those in attendance, host Andy Samberg did a memorable job emceeing the event and there were some unexpected moments that should entertain the broadcast audience as well.
