The 2020 Academy Awards wrap up the 2019 movie season this Sunday, February 9th at 8:00 p.m. ET at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. The 92nd Oscars will be broadcast on ABC in the United States, and across the globe as Tinseltown honors the best in film.

Well, some would argue that’s not entirely the case. Some of the best movies and actors and actresses are not nominated, which is a whole other debate to be had. But for one night, we get to wrap up what was a fascinating year for the movie industry.

“Joker” received the most nominations this year with 11. Three movies had ten nominations apiece, including “The Irishman,” “1917” and “Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood.” The show opens with the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Oscar, and wraps up however many hours later with the Best Picture Oscar.

This year’s show will once again go without a primary host. We’ll see a lot of celebrities handing out awards and moving the evening along.
