If you were holding out hope that this year's Oscars might move up a little bit to forestall the crushing inevitability that comes with rewarding movies long after every other awards ceremony has already weighed in ... well, how does a whole two days sound? The Academy announced today that the 2013 ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 24; that's virtually the same weekend as this past February 26 ceremony, though it's still some meager movement, if you want to be a stickler. Here's something a little bit better, though: The nominations will be announced on January 15, which is a full nine days earlier than the previous January 24 date. Almost there, guys! Can we get a competitive Oscarcast by 2020?
