Grace Kelly won't be up for any Oscars this year.

The Weinstein Company-produced biopic "Grace of Monaco," focusing on Philly gal Kelly's time as monarch of Monaco, was slated for a November 27 release, according to the Hollywood Reporter. But now the Nicole Kidman-starring film won't see the light of day until 2014.

Why? Usually, a push back in the schedule indicates quality (or lack thereof), but there were reports that studiohead Harvey Weinstein raved about the film, also starring Tim Roth (as Kelly's royal hubs, Rainier III), Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Paz Vega and Derek Jacobi. The Hollywood Reporter posits that "Grace" was moved because the Weinstein Company wants to focus on other Oscar prospects, such as surprise boxoffice dynamo Lee Daniels' The Butler, this awards season.

The first teaser trailer for the film was released last week.
