Oscars 2020 Live :Everything to Know About the 2020 Oscars Awards

The biggest night in Hollywood is almost here. Sam Mendes’ 1917 has been sweeping the precursor awards, including the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs, but Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite has notched some major honors as well, including the SAG Award for best drama ensemble and the WGA’s original screenplay award. Also still in the mix are Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, to name a few. So, while there are some heavy favorites going into the Oscars 2020, the Oscars’ best picture race is still a contested category, and, hey, they’ve surprised us before.

Before you get to the big award of the night though, there’s a lot to unpack. In this post, TV Guide will tell you everything you need to know about the 2020 Oscars 2020, including how to watch, who the nominees are, and who is performing at the biggest award show of the year.

Oscars 2020 Live

The Oscars 2020 Live ceremony, presented by the Oscars 2020 of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will honor the best films of 2019 and will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.[1] After more than a decade of holding the Oscars 2020 Award ceremonies in at least late February, the Oscars 2020 will be held earlier – on February 9, 2020. During the ceremony, AMPAS will present Oscars 2020 Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony will be televised in the United States by ABC, produced by Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain, and directed by Glenn Weiss. Citing the success of the format at the 91st presentation in 2019, ABC announced that the ceremony will again be conducted without a host.

In related events, the Oscars 2020 held its 11th Annual Governors Awards ceremony at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center on October 27, 2019.

How to Watch the Oscars 2020

There are many ways for you to watch the Oscars in 2020. There will be live streams on Twitter as well as ways for you watch on streaming apps. ABC will host the Oscars again this year but here is everything you need to know about watching online or without cable when the show airs on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.


The Academy Board of Governors voted in 2018 to move the ceremony from late February 2019 to early February.

What to Expect from the Oscars 2020

The Oscars will once again have no host. The ceremony also went without a host in 2019 after the Kevin Hart controversy over his past homophobic tweets. The show still went on with a star-studded intro after Queen’s musical performance, and the formula will probably be repeated for the 2020 show.

While the show should be fun, there are already some somber moments to put on your radar. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that the show will include a tribute to Kobe Bryant and those who died in the tragic helicopter accident on Sunday, Jan. 27.

The Nominees of the Oscars 2020

Netflix dominated the competition this year with 24 total nominations, mostly racked up by The Irishman and Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story. However, Joker racked up the most nominations for an individual film with 11, with 1917, The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood coming in a close second with ten nods each. There was also a four-way tie between Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story, and Parasite for third place with six nominations a piece. Check out the full list of nominations here.

Ceremony information

During its board of directors meeting in April 2019, the Academy voted to rename the Best Foreign Language Film category to Best International Feature Film. Animated and documentary films will also be eligible for the renamed award (as was the case of Honeyland), but the category will still require nominees to have the majority of their dialogue be in a language other than English.

The category of Best Makeup and Hairstyling has been expanded from seven finalists and three nominees to ten finalists and five nominees.

On January 9, 2020, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke revealed that the ceremony would once again forego a host, citing the success of the format at the previous ceremony (necessitated by the withdrawal of originally announced host Kevin Hart). Burke promised that the ceremony would feature “huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy and star power”.
