Precursors to the Academy Awards come in many different types and they can appear all year from festivals and national awards to critics groups and other organization. Each month, we’ll take a look at all of the upcoming events that could have some small impact on the Oscars so you can plan out what to keep an eye on.
NOTE: Someone asked last month why I didn’t include Cannes last week in the precursors list. At the time, I said it was because I couldn’t get the dates of every festival I wanted to include, but as I’ve thought about that over the last month, I decided that I do unconfirmed dates with the guilds and critics groups, so why not festivals. Starting this month, I’m going to try and include that information as well.
