Who will win? That’s the big question going into the 2020 Oscars, but there’s a bigger query ahead of the show: Who will be nominated?
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will provide the answer with the announcement of the nominees on Monday, ahead of the 92nd annual Academy Awards on Feb. 9 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
John Cho and Issa Rae will be on hand to announce this year’s nominees in all 24 categories for Hollywood’s biggest night.
You can watch the nominations right here at usatoday.com starting at 8:18 a.m. ET/5:18 a.m. PT. Monday, as well as on the Oscars website.
Oscar nominations 2020:Who’s in for sure – and who may get snubbed
While there are favorites in some of the acting categories, there’s no one film dominating the best picture discussion. Concerns have been raised that Hollywood could face another #OscarsSoWhite situation, mirroring the recent British Academy film awards nominations, which recognized only white actors.
ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke confirmed this week that the show will go on without an official host.
Last year marked the Academy’s first break with hosting tradition. After Kevin Hart stepped back from planned hosting duties, the Oscars went without a host for the first time in 30 years, with producers recruiting stars to introduce segments instead.
