Oscar nominations to be 5 days earlier

– The dynamics have shifted for Hollywood’s upcoming film honors now that the Academy Awards nominations are moving ahead of the Golden Globes.

Organizers said Tuesday that nominations for the 85th Oscars will be announced Jan. 10 – five days earlier than the academy previously planned.

The date change puts the Oscar nominations three days before Hollywood’s second-biggest film awards – the Golden Globes, whose ceremony takes place Jan. 13.

Oscar nominations typically come out after the Globes.

Oscar overseers say the switch will give the academy’s nearly 6,000 members more time to see nominated films.

Last season, Oscar voters had less than a month between the nominations and the deadline to submit their ballots. This time, academy members will have nearly six weeks to watch competing films from the time nominations are announced and the Feb. 19 ballot deadline.
