Oscars 2016: Important Dates

You know what it is. Oscar season. My favorite time of the year.

Every year, we kick off the season with a timeline of all the major Oscar-related events (at least all the ones that I care about, which is most of them). I know this wasn’t something that was easy to find when I was getting into this stuff, so I like to think that there’s a certain percentage of the public I’m helping out with this.
