The Oscars Are Sticking to Late February

We got briefly excited when it was rumored that the Academy Awards might move from February to January next year, a move that would restore some suspense to the categories that are usually foregone conclusions after all the other awards shows have had their say. Alas, it's not to be: The Academy announced today that the 2012 Oscars will air on February 26, a mere day earlier than this year's telecast. (At least we'll still know all the winners about a month beforehand, in case you want to throw a January Oscar party.)
