When are the Oscars?

Is there something wrong with my machine, or are the Academy Award-givers unable to count? When I visited oscar.com, the countdown clock tells me that there are 31 days and and 21 hours until oscar night. It's currently sunday. The oscars are held on a sunday. Shouldn't this be (one less than) a multiple of seven -- in particular shouldn't it be about 34 days? And what are they doing, starting at 4 in the afternoon?

I'm sure they will fix this as soon as they read it, so check it out now before it's too late. WARNING: Oscar site contains some truly horrible flash, including a video that starts playing with sound on, whether you want it to or not.
