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.

This ability to stand apart from the crowd will make you invincible. Stop looking to others for cues.More
