If you’ve been scouring your local theaters for a showing of My Week With Marilyn, search no more.

Ahead of next week’s Academy Awards, The Weinstein Company announced it will expand its twice-nominated film. Beginning on Feb. 24 (just two days shy of the ceremony), Marilyn will sweep into 600 theaters nationwide, no doubt riding the Marilyn wave that NBC’s Smash has perpetuated, as well as generating more Oscar buzz for Michelle Williams. That said, though she picked up the Golden Globe this year for her portrayal of the titular character, Williams remains at No. 3 in Dave Karger’s latest Oscar predictions.

The film opened in limited release on Nov. 23.
