The Academy and ABC announced on Tuesday the next four Oscar dates.

Next year’s 90th Academy Awards will be held on March 4. The show will return to February in 2019 — to be held on Feb. 24. In 2020, the ceremony is set for Feb. 23. It will take place on Feb. 28 the following year.

The date for the 90th Oscars, which had already been announced, is moving into March as not to compete with the Winter Olympics. The closing ceremony of the Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will be held on Feb. 25.

As usual, next year’s Oscars will take place at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre
