2020 Oscar Winners: The Full List


Just when you thought the Academy Awards were going to be completely anti-climactic with almost no room for surprises, the unexpected happened. Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite walked away with four awards on the night including Best Picture and Best Director, becoming the first foreign-language film ever to win the top prize. 1917, which had been the favourite for the past month came away with three awards: Best Cinematography, Visual Effects and Sound Mixing. Most of the acting awards went as expected and a lot of the other categories were spread around nicely, but the Parasite win is a big deal for people who have long thought the Academy is out of touch. For once, it seemed like the most deserving film was recognized (particularly among cinephiles), perhaps making up for last year’s wet noodle winner Green Book. Thanks to all who came out and joined us in the Film Junk Discord chat and congrats to Brad for winning our Oscar pool! What did you think of this year’s Oscars? Check out the full list of nominees and winners after the jump.

  • Jake

    Definitely more surprises than usual. I also didn’t expect Taika Waititi to win.

  • Jameson

    Big congratulations to Bong Joon-Ho and the entire cast and crew of Parasite. This is huge.

  • Lori Cerny

    Did everyone catch his reply to the reporter? “We just made a movie.” So adorable.

  • Rolf

    Even the Oscars hassle Frank now for hardly watching/appreciating foreign language movies. What more does it take for the KoC?

  • I would assume this means another step backwards next year or the one after now that they got the diversity out of their system again (similar to Green Book following Moonlight as Best Picture with Shape of Water in between).

  • Fletcher Thomas

    Considering the Academy Awards doesn’t exist solely to recognize diversity, I’d have figured meeting the Left’s standards every second year is a pretty good track record of late. Yet the criticism is there every year.

  • Isildur_of_Numenor

    Can we finally give the Academy a break? I mean come on, I can’t remember a night going this well for all involved, including hard-to-please film buffs such as ourselves. Well, that Cats moment was unbelievable, the people that worked on that film must’ve had an awful night. Deakins and Guðnadóttir are true rock stars.

  • LordAwesome

    If anything black actors have been highly over-presented in comparison to their percentage of the population over the past twenty years.

  • Jake

    The way he was looking at his (first) Oscar was the best. I could watch it on a loop.


  • Ben Bueno

    All these years I was under the impression that the Oscars were an american film industry awards show. Sure a lot of people who aren’t american have won throughout the years, but is the fact that no foreign language movie has ever won before really that surprising, considering that the academy is american and that the show is overwhelmingly american? Am I wrong? Are the Oscars considered international and I just failed to realize this? Maybe I’m way off…

  • Ben Bueno

    Not an american btw, and I’m not outraged in any way about Parasite winning, I’m just confused at the reaction.
