Academy Awards organisers have moved up a key date in the upcoming season of Hollywood film honours.

Nominations for the 85th Oscars will be announced on January 10, 2013 - five days earlier than the academy previously announced.

Oscar overseers say the switch will give the academy's nearly 6,000 members more time to see nominated films before the awards ceremony on February 24, 2012.

The date change puts the Oscar nominations three days before Hollywood's second-biggest film awards - the Golden Globes, whose ceremony takes place on January 13.

Oscar nominations typically come out after the Globes. The earlier date for Oscar nominations could steal a bit of the thunder from the Globes, which are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
