Gear up Hollywood award trackers, January is going to be an even busier month next year.

The Directors Guild of America announced Wednesday that the 66th DGA Awards will be held on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles.

The show will move up one week from its date this year and will closely follow the Screen Actors Guild Awards (Jan. 18) and the Producers Guild Awards (Jan. 19).

The awards calendar for 2014 is being compressed by the Winter Olympics, which will run from Feb. 7 to Feb. 24 in Sochi, Russia.

Neither the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nor the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has yet to announce dates for their annual shows, the Oscars and the Golden Globes, respectively.

Since 2002, the academy has aired its annual Oscar telecast in February, but during the last Winter Games, the group pushed it back into March.
