It may get a bit stale at times, but the Oscars are one award ceremony for Hollywood, which is still a beloved shrine for movie buffs. Every year, the best of the best movies are pitted against each other while we see gifted and talented actors take home an Academy award. An actor's work reputation becomes three-fold when he or she is an Oscar-winning actor. Whether it be the most-nominated actress Meryl Streep or even Leonardo DiCaprio, who finally won the Best Actor Oscar for The Revenant (2015), moments are forever cherished at the Oscars.

When it comes to Oscars 2019 or the 92nd Academy Awards, the award ceremony will be airing as previously announced on February 9, 2020. However, the Oscars 2021 and Oscars 2022, will be airing on different dates. While Oscars 2021 will take place on February 28, 2021, Oscars 2022 will take place on February 27, 2022. According to The Times of India, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the broadcaster have revealed the reason for the change in dates. "Timing of the 2022 Olympics, the Super Bowl and national holidays will keep the 2021 and 2022 dates on the last Sunday in February," they stated.

This means that the last Sunday of February 2021 and 2022 are reserved for the 93rd and 94th Academy Awards.
