2020 Oscar Winners: The Complete List

A truncated awards season comes to a close with the 92nd Academy Awards, happening earlier than ever tonight, Feb. 9, and as short as the red carpet-wrecking interval between now and Jan. 5’s Golden Globes has been, it may as well have been even shorter: Some of tonight’s biggest winners have seemingly been preordained, vacuuming up precursor after precursor on their obstacle-free roads to Oscar gold, and all that’s left are their actual victory laps. But it’s the potential for surprises (however small) we’ll key in on tonight, and we cordially invite you to join us.

We’ll be following along with all the action out of the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood tonight, where the Oscars will go without a host (ignoring our spot-on ideas) for the second year running, which is still just the third time in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ history. We can’t blame them: Last year’s laid-back, entertaining ceremony practically made the idea of an Oscars host obsolete, to the tune of a significant ratings boost, and this year will feature a similar approach, with another staggering array of stars acting as presenters:

Jane Fonda, Josh Gad, Tom Hanks, Oscar Isaac, Sandra Oh, Natalie Portman, Chris Rock, Taika Waititi, Mahershala Ali, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Zazie Beetz, Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Colman, James Corden, Penélope Cruz, Beanie Feldstein, Will Ferrell, Gal Gadot, Zack Gottsagen, Salma Hayek, Mindy Kaling, Diane Keaton, Regina King, Shia LaBeouf, Brie Larson, Spike Lee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, George MacKay, Rami Malek, Steve Martin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Keanu Reeves, Ray Romano, Maya Rudolph, Mark Ruffalo, Kelly Marie Tran, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig and Rebel Wilson.

In between awards, we’ll be treated to performances of all five of this year’s Best Original Song nominees, courtesy of Cynthia Erivo, Oscar winner Elton John, Idina Menzel, Chrissy Metz and Oscar winner Randy Newman, as well as performances by stars like Billie Eilish, Janelle Monáe and Questlove. And Eímear Noone will guest-conduct a segment of the show, making her the first woman to conduct during an Oscars telecast—the Academy will take wins on gender parity wherever they can find ‘em.

Don’t begrudge us our digs, we beg of you. This year’s slate of nominees shows how agonizingly slow the Oscars’ progress has been, with just one actor of color (Harriet star Erivo) nominated in the four major acting categories, as well as an all-male slate of directors. Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite and Todd Phillips’ Joker might as well be locked in a battle for the soul of the Academy, but after all is said and done, it’s Sam Mendes’ 1917 that may end up the night’s biggest winner of all. Make of that what you will.

The 92nd Academy Awards air live on ABC starting at 8 p.m. ET, leaving you a little while to look over Paste’s preview of the evening, including the Movies team’s predictions for who will win, arguments for who should win and righteous anger over who got snubbed. We’ve also assembled a handy streaming guide for you cinephile completists angling to squeeze in one last nominated film (or two, or more, if we’re talking shorts) before the ceremony.

Watch this space to follow along with tonight’s big winners in real time, starting alongside the ceremony at 8 p.m. and updating live throughout the night. In the meantime, you can brush up on the nominees for each category below. Winners will be denoted and offset in bold as they are announced.
