Countdown to the 83rd Academy Awards®

By The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

On December 7 (tomorrow!), we will be 83 days away from the 83rd Academy Awards. Beginning tomorrow, we will be counting down to the February 27 ceremony by revisiting all of the Academy Awards ceremonies that have come before. You're invited to visit on December 7 – and every day thereafter – to experience highlights from throughout the history of one of the world's most anticipated annual events. We'll be showcasing photos, audio clips, video segments and interesting facts (from the year's awards winners and ceremony, as well as around the world in general) and all of the content featured will be shareable.

We hope you'll spend a few minutes each day venturing back in time as we continue on our journey forward to the 83rd Oscars. You can sign up for our RSS feed of the Countdown, follow us on Facebook ( Academy) or Twitter (, or just check each day.

And please be sure to share the news of our Countdown with your readers, watchers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers. Movie lovers and Oscar fans everywhere are invited, too!
