Oscars move to March for 2014, MTV video awards go to Brooklyn

Next year's Oscar awards will be held on March 2, moving later in the year to avoid conflicts with the Winter Olympics from Russia. The show will then move back to February (Feb. 22 to be exact) for 2015, the academy announced today.

To add some insult to the injury of all those crew jobs heading east, MTV on Monday launched a marketing campaign that features the VMAs' Moonman trophy traveling from Staples Center to Brooklyn.
