As of July 2015, the 88th Academy Awards are set to be held on Feb. 28, 2016. The dates for two following years have also been set for Feb. 26, 2017 and March 4, 2018.
The most-recent Academy Awards ceremony took place on Feb. 22, 2015. The Academy Awards are typically held in February or March, in an effort to keep the nominated films from the previous year fresh in the minds of viewers and voters. The Academy Awards are also held on Sundays at 7 p.m. on ABC, followed by a special Academy Awards edition of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
