Updated 2/10/20: Winners have been added to this list so you can stream, rent or buy the 2020 Academy Award winning movies.

The 92nd edition of the Oscars aired slightly earlier this year, on February 9th at 6:30 PM EST

And, like last year, this behemoth of an awards show will have no host.  

Considering they practically make a senate inquiry into the host’s background these days, who would want to take it on anyway?

That being said, it’s hard not to miss Billy Crystal’s pre-twitter era musical numbers. Ah, the good old days.

Whatever controversy has surrounded the show over the years, it’s hard to resist all the glitz, glam and buzz of excitement that the Oscar’s bring us on Hollywood’s biggest night. 

2020 Highlights and Snubs

Will The Joker Have The Last Psychotic Laugh? 

Dark and twisted it may be, but the controversial drama Joker leads the way in this year’s Academy Award nominations with a total of 11 nods, including Best Picture, Best Director and Lead Actor. 

Never has a movie based on a comic book received so many nominations.

Close behind with 10 nominations each are Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and 1917 from Sam Mendes. 

It’s no surprise to see these heavyweight directors acknowledged for their work in a still mostly traditional (white male) Hollywood. 

But as usual, there were some glaring snubs. 

Most notably, Greta Gerwig was skipped over in the Best Director category, although her well-received film Little Women was nominated for Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay.

In fact, this marks the second year in a row that no women were nominated in the Best Director category. 

Other female directors that went unacknowledged for their well-reviewed work include Lulu Wang for The Farewell, Kasi Lemmons for Harriet, and Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood.

However traditional the roster for Best Director may be overall this year, it’s interesting to note the not-to-be-ignored presence of South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho. 

His dark comedy meet drama meets horror film Parasite has a total of 6 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director and Best International Film. 

The Acting Category: Who’s In? Who’s Out?

The acting category included plenty of  names we’ve seen before like Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron and Renee Zellweger. More interesting to note are the first time nominations for Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory) and Scarlett Johannson who is nominated for both lead actress (Marriage Story) and best actress in a supporting role (Jojo Rabbit). 

Some significant snubs in the acting category were Eddie Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name, Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems, Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers and Awkwafina in The Farewell.

Overall, the acting category largely ignored people of color, with Cynthia Erivo being the one exception. 

It’s time to catch up on your movies, fill out your ballot and stock up on popcorn. 

And now, without further ado, here is the full list of Academy Award nominations for 2020.
