Quick Preview of TCM in March

The annual 31 Days of Oscar month returns to Turner Classic Movies in March 2022.

Last year TCM didn't celebrate Oscar month until April due to the awards ceremony being pushed back on the schedule.

This year's Oscar ceremony will be held on Sunday, March 27th, so TCM's Oscar month is being held in March for the first time in a few years.

As regular TCM viewers are aware, there don't tend to be many surprises on the schedule during Oscars month, as every film being shown was nominated for or won an Academy Award.

The flip side of the lack of rarities, "B" pictures, and the like is that it's a month of top quality viewing. This makes it an especially good time for newer film fans to catch some great classics, and most longtime film fans, myself included, also have some well-known films they still need to see for the first time.

According to Awards Watch, something unique this year is that there will also be a daily film available on HBO Max under the "Classics Curated by TCM" tab. There will also be "exclusive content available from the Academy."

Awards Watch has a complete preview of the schedule.

As usual, Noir Alley, Silent Sunday Nights, and the other regular TCM franchises take Oscar month off. They will return to the schedule in April.

I'll share more about the Oscar month schedule here around March 1st.
