The Oscars this year’s award show took place on Sunday, 9th of February of 2020 at 5pm PST, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, LA. This year’s award had many performances; artists like Elton John, Billie Eilish, and Eminem sang at the ceremony.

The whole show was quite exciting with some awards given to not so expected winners, a few of these cases were:

“Parasite”: some critics say that in the midst of a US president that doesn’t like immigrants, the winner “Parasite,” a dark comedy about the divisions of wealth and class, became the first foreign-language film in history to win the coveted Oscar for best picture. A major surprise for everyone.

“I’m Gonna Love Me Again”: Surprisingly Rocketman took the win on the Best Original Song. The song is based on self-love. More specifically it seems to center on an era in the life of the subject of the song – which is the iconic musician Elton John, the author of the song.

And last but not least, “Toy Story 4” took the win home for the Best Animated Feature Film. Many people argued that it wasn’t as good as past Toy Story films, but the votes talk for itself.

At the end, The Oscars was an amusing night where everybody enjoyed of the recognition of many talented people.
