More than two weeks have passed since this year’s Academy Awards took place. That means it’s time to start planning for another one.

To that end, the Academy announced this afternoon that next year’s Oscars will be held on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013 at the no-longer-Kodak Theatre, otherwise known as the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Nominations will be announced about a month before that, on Jan. 15.

Please mark those dates on your calendar, along with this one: Monday, Feb. 25, 2013. That’s when you’ll want to carve out some time to discuss: a. how lackluster the Oscar host was; b. how predictable the winners were; and, hopefully, c. why Angelina Jolie awkwardly thrust her leg out from under her skirt again, especially after everyone freaked out about it last year.

Now stop dilly dallying and start debating about whether Meryl Streep will receive her 18th Oscar nomination for her role in “Great Hope Springs.”
