92nd Academy Awards

The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy 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 Academy Award ceremonies in at least late February, the 92nd Academy Awards will be held earlier – on February 9, 2020.[1][2] During the ceremony, AMPAS will present Academy 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.[3] Citing the success of the format at the 91st presentation in 2019, ABC announced that the ceremony will again be conducted without a host.[4]

Ceremony informationEdit

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.[11][12]

The category of Best Makeup and Hairstyling has been expanded from seven finalists and three nominees to ten finalists and five nominees.[13]

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".[14][15]
