The time has come to find out the nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards. The nominees in all 24 Oscar categories will be announced live this morning from Hollywood by Issa Rae and John Cho. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be live streaming the 2020 Oscars announcement from various social media channels, including their official Facebook page (click here for the Academy’s Facebook feed) and Twitter page (click here for the Academy’s Twitter feed). Additionally, the nominations announcement will also live stream on the official Oscars YouTube Page, the video for which has been embedded below.
What films are expected to dominate the Oscars? After the Golden Globe Awards and the Critics Choice Awards, it appears likely that Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” will wrack up the most nominations this year. Both movies are likely to earn Oscar nominations in the double digits. Other major contenders include Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite,” Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story,” Sam Mendes’ “1917,” and Todd Phillips’ “Joker.” Many Oscar pundits will be watching closely to see how films like Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” fare with Academy voters. “Little Women” has great critical acclaim, but it’s not a lock in the major categories.
The 2020 Oscar nominations will begin approximately at 8:18am ET with the announcement of the following categories (not listed in order of presentation): Actor in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Supporting Role, Costume Design, Film Editing, Original Score, Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing.
The nominations announcement will continue at 8:30am ET with the presentation of the remaining categories (not listed in order of presentation): Actor in a Leading Role, Actress in a Leading Role, Animated Feature Film, Cinematography, Directing, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, International Feature Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Song, Best Picture, Production Design, Visual Effects, Adapted Screenplay, and Original Screenplay.
