Having been sidelined by the WGA strike this year, the Golden Globes are set to return next year on Sunday, Jan. 11.

On Tuesday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. announced its key dates for its 66th annual awards. Nominations will be announced at 5 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 11.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — What’s more significant: the inauguration of a new U.S. president or the announcement of the year’s Oscar nominees? The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided politics takes precedence, announcing today it has delayed the nominations announcement by two days.

Oscar nominees are usually revealed on a Tuesday about four weeks before the big show, which is typically held the last Sunday in February. For 2009, though, the targeted Tuesday — Jan. 20 — is Inauguration Day.
So the 81st annual Oscar nominees will be revealed Thursday, Jan. 22, and the Academy Awards will be presented Sunday, Feb. 22 — the earliest Oscars ever.
