DGA Awards set for Jan. 25

Date hints that Oscars won't move to January

The Directors Guild of America Awards have been set for Jan. 25 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles.

Because the location of the DGAs is in the same complex as the Academy Awards, the date offers an indication that the Oscars won’t unspool Jan. 26, as has been speculated, because of next year’s Winter Olympics in February.

Instead, the Oscars are more likely to move back into March, as they did for the 2010 Olympics. Other, less likely options are to take an early January date, or to move off Sunday.

The 2014 Grammys, which are also looking to shift out of February because of the Olympics and the Feb. 2 Super Bowl, are a strong candidate to grab the Jan. 26 spot.

The DGAs did join the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Producers Guild Awards in pushing a week ahead on the calendar compared to their most recent events.The past DGAs were on Feb. 2.

The SAGs are shifting from Jan. 27 this year to Jan. 18 next year, while the PGAs are moving from Jan. 26 to Jan. 19.

Next season’s awards calendar could therefore reverse this year’s, when the voting deadline for Oscar nominations came before some guild kudos were revealed, a factor that is believed to have contributed to, for example, Ben Affleck’s omission from the Oscar directing nominations. Instead, next year’s Oscar voters might have plenty of time to factor in the guild nominees.
