The nominations for the Oscar 2020 will begin at 8:18 a.m. EST Monday. This means by the end of Monday, we the fans of the Academy Awards will get to know who will be celebrating Monday. The 92nd Academy Awards is held on February 9, and this time it will be sans a host just like the last year. While there are many predictions making the rounds for the nomination list, however, there are a few that are pretty consistent in pretty much every list.
Greta Gerwig's Little Women is highly predicted to get several nods. Right from Best Picture to Best Director category, the film is expected to reap eight nominations. If Greta is nominated for the director's category, she will be the only female director to be nominated for the category. Joker, Marriage Story, Parasite and Rocketman are the other four films that are likely to get the most nominations, including The Best Picture.
For the Best Actor Male category, Joaquin Phoenix, for Joker, Adam Driver for Marriage Story, and Leonardo DiCaprio for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, are the most likely contenders to not only get a nod but also win the trophy.
For the Best Actor Female category, Renee Zellweger for Judy, Charlize Theron for Bombshell, Scarlett Johansson for Marriage Story, Saoirse Ronan for Little Women, Awkwafina for The Farewell are most likely to get nominated. If Awkwafina gets a nod, she'll be the second Asian to get nominated for Oscar after 1936 nominee Merle Oberon, who hid her South Asian heritage.
Beyoncé is also likely to get an Oscar nomination in her kitty thanks to her Lion King song. Barack and Michelle Obama's American Factor is also likely to get a nod among the documentary nominees. Marvel's blockbuster Avengers: Endgame might get a nomination for the Best Visual Effects category.
The nomination list will be read by Issa Rae and John Cho. It will be live-streamed on Oscar.com, Oscars.org and the academy’s other digital social platforms.
