The Complete List of 2020 Oscars Winners: ‘Parasite’, ‘1917’ and More!

2020 Oscars Winners

After three hours, many great speeches, and some victorious wins, the list of the 2020 Oscars winners are in. Although the 92nd Academy Awards have come to an end, the talk of Parasite has not.

Bong Joon-Ho not only left the crowd laughing, crying, and excited, he also took home some big awards. Last night he was recognized for his writing and directing skills, winning in the night’s most significant categories. Parasite took home Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature (which was renamed in 2020 to Best Foreign Language Film). Bong Joon-Ho then won Best Director. And to cap off the night, Parasite also won Best Picture over 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Parasite is the first film in a foreign language to win in this category ever.

All the Oscar feels in that above clip. We’re so happy for Bong Joon-Ho!

Other notable wins of the night included Joaquin Phoenix for Best Lead Actor in Joker. Although Joker had the most nominations, the film only left with two awards – Best Lead Actor and Best Original Score.

Did you expect all of these wins or were you hoping to see some other 2020 Oscars winners? Were you as upset as our Editor was about 1917 not taking home Best Picture? We want to know your thoughts and opinions, so leave us a comment!

  1. Most of the wins were predictable but best picture should have gone to 1917 even though every film nominated was awesome. Best Actress in a Leading Role should have gone to someone besides Renee. I liked the lead performances in Harriet and Little Women more. Besides these categories I think the academy got it mostly right but some great movies were not nominated at all this year.

    1. Callie – I think you summed it up perfectly. Though I would have also given Sam Mendes Best Director…. Aside from the fact that 1917 was an incredible film – the extra effort that went into having it look like it was all one shot – and the length of some of those shots. I mean it was just truly remarkable.

      1. It is nice to have a forum for talking about Oscar wins. I was watching with my mom but she was pretty bored. We try to see as many movies as possible every year so don’t know how she is not more interested. I know I would have made a few more changes myself but I was happy with most the winners.
