For the last eleven years, we've gotten quite used to seeing the Oscar telecast on Sunday nights in March, as the air begins to warm and winter once again slips away. Parties are whipped up, hors d'oeuvres are put out, and people come together to cheer and mock the pomp and circumstance behind Hollywood's biggest night.

But then word hit that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences were entertaining the notion of moving the ceremony to January, pushing it into the mid-winter rush instead of the end of winter slump. And now there's another change in the works ... although this one was bred out of necessity rather than change: The Oscars could end up moving back to Monday nights in 2013.
