DGA Changes Nominations Date to Avoid Clash With Oscars'


The Director Guild of America moves its nominations announcement schedule from January 10 to January 8 so it won't fall on the same day as the Academy Awards 2013 noms.

The AMPAS' key dates announcement for next year's Academy Awards has apparently affected the Directors Guild of America's schedule. Shortly after the Academy confirmed that it would reveal Oscar nominees on January 10, the DGA was forced to rearrange its feature film nominations date to avoid clash with the Oscars'.

A spokeswoman for the DGA told TheWrap on Tuesday, September 18 that the organization changed its nominations announcement schedule from January 10 to January 8. The action reportedly was taken so that the DGA event would not be buried by the publicity that would surround the Oscar nominations.

Additionally, DGA confirmed that the television and commercial nominations would be announced a day later on January 9. The TV and commercial noms were previously skedded for January 11. As for the documentary nominations, they would be unveiled to public on January 14.
