LOS ANGELES (AP) - The 85th Academy Awards have been set for Feb. 24, 2013, and they’ll take place once again at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

The venue, formerly known as the Kodak Theatre, opened in 2001 to be the permanent home of the Hollywood’s biggest awards ceremony. Eastman Kodak Co. filed for bankruptcy protection and dropped its name from the event just before this year’s Oscars were handed out.

A representative of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says the academy has a contract with the owner of the Hollywood & Highland Center through the 2013 show. Negotiations are still ongoing as to where there ceremony might take place in upcoming years.

Academy Award nominations are set for Jan. 15, 2013.
