When is earnings season? Which are key players?

  1. When do the main earnings start and end each quarter? How many days after quarter end do some of the larger companies start reporting? And when are the bulk of them finished reporting? Would it be from the 10th to the 30th of the month following the end of the quarter ...?

    And who are the dozen (more?) key players whose earnings are closely watched and may move markets? I think Google and Amazon would be on this list.
