Oscars 2020 – Everything You Need To Know About The 92nd Academy Awards

 

Through time, the Oscars have given us some of the biggest pop culture moments in history. The wrong ‘Best Film’ winner drama of 2017, for instance. Jennifer Lawrence tripping up on stage to collect her Best Actress gong, Michael Moore’s anti-President Bush speech in 2003 and plenty of memorable dresses. The end of the 2020 awards season is nigh, signalled by the Oscars. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s ceremony.

Who is presenting the 2020 Oscars?

 
 

After years of controversial hosts and the job being jokingly referred to as one of the worst to land in Hollywood, the Oscars has continued with its theme of being host-less.

Rather than having one presenter throughout the ceremony, there are a number of stars who will present individual awards and performances instead.

Here are just some of the familiar names on the impressive list:

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

 

Who is performing at the 2020 Oscars?

 
 

It wouldn’t be the Academy Awards without some memorable performances like John Legend and Common’s moving ‘Glory’ number in 2015 or the star-studded Les Miserables performance in 2013 or last year’s hugely talked about rendition of ‘Shallows’ by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

This year, Cynthia Erivo, Elton John, Idina Menzel, Chrissy Metz and Randy Newman will all perform their respective Oscar-nominated songs.

 

How can I watch the Oscars?

 

In the UK, the Oscars is streamed live on Sky Cinema’s dedicated Sky Cinema Oscars channel. NOW TV Sky Cinema Pass holders can therefore also watch the proceedings live from the US.

For us watching the action from across the pond, the red carpet kicks off at 10pm on 9th February with the actual ceremony starting at 1am on 10th February.
