The 2020 Oscars Preview
The 92nd Academy Awards is expected to bring out some of the biggest names in Hollywood as this past year’s films and performances are honored. Among those nominated, the category for “Best Actor” is anticipated to go to Joaquin Phoenix for his performance in Joker and “Best Actress” is expected to go to Renee Zellweger for her role in Judy. The award for “Best Picture” is predicted to go to the film 1917.
The 2020 Oscars will not have a host, making this year the second year in a row that the ceremony will go on without an official host. There was extensive backlash over the announcement of comedian Kevin Hart as the host for the 91st Academy Awards in 2019 after several homophobic and prejudiced tweets of his resurfaced within days of the announcement. Ultimately, Hart stepped down from his role as host and was not replaced. The Academy Awards will continue to go on without a host this year, making 2020 the seventh time in the history of the awards show that there will not be an official host. Past years without a host include 1939, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1989, and 2019.
