After the glamorous conclusion of the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs, everyone is excited about the Oscar Awards, and why not, the Academy Awards are one of the prestigious award ceremonies in the world. Hollywood’s biggest star talent comes together (of course wearing their unique and gorgeous runway couture) to witness the beaming happiness on all those faces who are going to receive the prestigious Oscars. It’s going to be an exciting award ceremony especially for major filmmakers like Noah Baumbach, Scorsese, Greta Gerwig, Quentin Tarantino, and many more.
Which Movies Have Chance of Bagging an Oscar Trophy?
Predicting the winners of Oscar Awards is not a piece of cake. The Oscar 2019 Awards have taught us to expect the surprise or unexpected. Many were confident about “Roma” to win Oscar for Best Picture but the “Green Book” – a film stuck in controversy – emerged as the winner.
However, there are speculations around the nominations for the 2020 Academy Awards. Considering individual performances, several news sources predict the winning of Joaquin Phoenix in Joker, Tom Hanks in A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers, and Adam Driver in Marriage Story.
‘The Irishman’ has garnered many praises from everyone:
I watched The Irishman twice in a 48 hour period. It was even better the second time. Pesci never better. Pacino was incredible and moving. DeNiro found deep emotion I haven’t seen in decades. Scorsese is the greatest. Prediction: Oscar sweep.— d a singer (@dasinger22) December 1, 2019
Likely contenders for Best Director are Martin Scorsese for The Irishman, Noah Baumbach for Marriage Story, and Bong Joon Ho for Parasite.
Chances for winning the Best Picture trophy are for Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Todd Phillip’s Joker. Additionally, Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit and Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite also have fair chances to win the Oscar trophy as they have won prizes at the Toronto International Film Festival, Cannes, and Venice Film Festival.
The above predictions are done by various new sources while the names of Oscar 2020 nominees will be officially announced on Monday, 13 January 2020.
Who is Hosting the 2020 Oscar Ceremony?
There isn’t any official announcement yet on who will hosting 2020 Oscars. Also, there is a doubt whether they are going to hire a host or not. The 2019 Oscars went without any host for the first time in the last 30 years because of Kevin Hart’s controversy regarding public backlash over homophobic tweets. To everyone’s surprise, the show really went well without any host.
Where’s the Venue of Ceremony?
The 2020 Oscar Ceremony is held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles on Sunday, 9 February 2020. The event is being hosted there since 2002. The timing is 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET.
What is the Dress Code?
There is no enforcement of dress-code at Oscars but celebrities especially women are typically seen in elaborate ball gowns designed by the world’s famous designers and fashion houses thereby showcasing the latest fashion trends on the red carpet.
