2014 Oscars show moved to March to avoid Winter Olympics clash

  • Next year's Academy Awards are to be held on March 2, a week later than usual, so as to not clash with the Winter Olympics in Russia in February.

    The Winter Olympics are to be held in Sochi, Russia, from February 7-23.

    Several Hollywood awards shows have shifted their dates in order to avoid a clash with coverage of the games.

    The Screen Actors Guild Awards has already announced that its 2014 ceremony will be pushed back from the end of January to January 18.

    The Golden Globes ceremony, normally held in mid-January, are yet to announce a date for its 2014 show.
