The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced key dates for next year’s 85th annual Academy Awards. Nominations will be announced on Jan. 10, 2013, five days earlier than had been previously planned. That means highly anticipated Oscar nominations will be revealed days before the comparatively boozier Golden Globe Awards, which air live Jan. 13, instead of after.

The Academy also noted that this is the first time its members will be able to vote electronically. To help with the process, there will be assisted voting stations in Los Angeles, New York and London, and a 24-hour telephone help line during voting periods.

Here are the newly announced Oscar dates:

Friday, November 30, 2012: Official Screen Credits due
Saturday, December 1, 2012: Governors Awards presentation
Monday, December 17, 2012: Nominations voting begins
Thursday, January 3, 2013: Nominations voting ends 5 p.m. PT
Thursday, January 10, 2013: Nominations announced 5:30 a.m. PT, Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater
Monday, February 4, 2013: Nominees Luncheon
Friday, February 8, 2013: Final voting begins
Saturday, February 9, 2013: Scientific and Technical Awards presentation
Tuesday, February 19, 2013: Final voting ends 5 p.m. PT
Sunday, February 24, 2013: 85th Academy Awards presentation
