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 previously 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.[1]


In 2018, the Academy Board of Governors voted to move the ceremony from late February to early February.[1][2]

Ceremony information[edit]

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, but the category will still require nominees to have the majority of their dialogue be in a language other than English.[4][5]

The category of Best Makeup and Hairstyling has been expanded from seven finalists and three nominees to ten finalists and five nominees.[6]
