Adding Events to IMDb--Timeline?

I added some events to IMDb (or at least requested them to be added) in the manner I was told to via the helpdesk.  I know that it said IMDb might be backlogged as they started receiving new events requests back in November when they first announced it.  I submitted my events request in mid-December, but I haven't seen any changes or received confirmation that the request has even been read.  Does anyone happen to know if they are still back logged or how much longer it might take for them to upload?  Or even who I should ask about this?  I know it's crazy with awards season going on, but I wasn't sure if I've been doing something wrong.



I appreciate it!

Hi Rich -

Just to confirm, we are logging all New Events that we receive through HelpDesk.  Our data editors have not yet started processing these new event listing requests, but they will start processing them in the near future.   Unfortunately I cannot give you an exact time frame, however, please rest assured that your requests will be processed soon.

If I hear anything in the meantime, I will be sure to update you here.

Thank you for your help. I know this time of year is probably  busy on the awards front, but I do hope these can be added soon.  I appreciate IMDbs recognition that some actors and crew are sorely misrepresented in their awards section.

Did anything ever happen with this? I haven't seen any of the events I added in December pop up yet, and now I see certain IMDb pages are no longer tallying awards correctly even when the update comes through events that are already registered to the site. Did IMDb decide not to do this after all?
