The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 2019 and took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.[2] After more than a decade of holding the Academy Award ceremonies towards the end of February, the 92nd Academy Awards took place earlier in the month, on February 9, 2020.[2][3] During the ceremony, AMPAS presented Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony was televised in the United States by ABC, produced by Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain, and directed by Glenn Weiss.[4] Citing the success of the format at the 91st presentation in 2019, ABC announced that the ceremony would again be conducted without a host.[5]

This event marked the first time in Oscar history that more than three films had received ten or more nominations. In addition, it was only the third time that more than two films had received ten or more nominations (after the 37th and 50th Academy Awards).

In related events, the Academy held its 11th Annual Governors Awards ceremony at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center on October 27, 2019.[6]

The South Korean film Parasite led the ceremony with four awards and became the first non-English-language film to win Best Picture, as well as the first South Korean submission to win Best International Feature Film.[7][8] The war film 1917 won three awards, while Ford v Ferrari, Joker, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood won two awards each.[9] American Factory, Bombshell, Hair Love, Jojo Rabbit, Judy, Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You're a Girl), Little Women, Marriage Story, The Neighbors' Window, Rocketman, and Toy Story 4 won one Oscar each.
