The 2021-2022 Awards Season Calendar

Your guide to the when, where, what, and who for the biggest awards of the season.

by | December 9, 2021 | Comments

While last year’s awards season was protracted (and largely virtual) because of the pandemic, the 2021-22 season is already off to an encouraging start. The Emmys took place in September without too many technological fails, and the major awards contender films have had their splashy premieres.

With the film industry on its way to recovery, there’s plenty to celebrate in film and TV — and we’ve still had plenty of time to watch this year’s new releases (and, in many cases, more accessibility via virtual releases, too). This year looks different because of the return of in-person ceremonies, as well as the reckoning involving the racial politics of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (and subsequent lack of television broadcast of the Golden Globes).

The majority of awards-giving bodies have announced the dates of their 2022 ceremonies, including when the nominations to be announced, but there are still some that have yet to be revealed. Keep track of the latest 2021-22 awards season schedule below, and we’ll continue to update it with more news and information as it becomes available.
