The 83rd Annual Academy Awards will take place on February 27, 2011 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.

The move back to February follows the decision to schedule this year’s telecast on March 7 so as not to clash with TV coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, which ended on February 28.

The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences released an initial timetable of events in the run-up to the ceremony and said nominations will be announced on January 25.

Nominations ballots will be mailed on December 27, polls close on January 14, final ballots will be mailed on February 2, and final polls close on February 22.
