This coming awards season will see the Oscars, the BAFTAs, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Directors and Producers Guild of America Awards, and the Independent Spirit Awards all take place.

That's a lot of red carpets and a lot of award ceremonies, but when are they on? Who's going to be at them? Where are they happening? Fret not, because we've got your awards season calendar that'll take you right through to the Oscars.

We kick things off with...

 

Saturday, January 19th

The Producers Guild of America Awards are announced, which are often one of the best indicators of how the Best Picture category will eventually shake out. It's correctly predicted what movie will Best Picture on the night of the Oscars, and most of the people who vote for this ceremony also vote in the same category as Best Picture.

 

Sunday, January 27th

The Screen Actors' Guild Awards are announced, with Megan Mullally from 'Will & Grace' hosting this year's ceremony. Alan Alda's also due to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and the ceremony covers both movies and TV.

 

Saturday, February 2nd

The Directors' Guild of America Awards are announced, with Bradley Cooper hotly tipped to pick up something here for 'A Star Is Born', whether its Outstanding Directorial Achievement In A Motion Picture, or First-Time Feature Film.

 

Sunday, February 10th

The BAFTA Awards are announced, with Joanna Lumley hosting this year's ceremony. 'The Favourite' picked up 12 nominates, with Ireland's own Robbie Ryan in the running for Best Cinematography and Barry Keoghan up for an EE Rising Star Award.

 

Saturday, February 17th

The Writers Guild of America Awards are announced, with this natural being the best indicator of how the Best Original and Best Adapted Screenplay Awards are going to pan out for the Oscars.

 

Saturday, February 23rd

Before the Oscars the following night, the Film Independent Spirit Awards will take place with Aubrey Plaza hosting this year's ceremony. The ceremony's known for being pretty relaxed and kooky, with John Waters (the guy who did 'Hairspray', not the other one) hosting it for three years on the go in the early '00s.

 

Sunday, February 24th

Awards season comes to an end with the Academy Awards on Sunday night, with this year's ceremony likely being the first since 1989 to not feature a host in the traditional sense of the word. Each individual award will be presented by one or two actors or directors, which will most likely reduce the runtime of the whole ceremony. No bad thing, to be honest - it usually runs for at least three hours.
