Ceremony information

During its board of directors meeting in April 2019, the Academy voted to rename the Best Foreign Language Film category to Best International Feature Film. Animated and documentary films will also be eligible for the renamed award (as was the case of Honeyland), but the category will still require nominees to have the majority of their dialogue be in a language other than English.

The category of Best Makeup and Hairstyling has been expanded from seven finalists and three nominees to ten finalists and five nominees.

On January 9, 2020, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke revealed that the ceremony would once again forego a host, citing the success of the format at the previous ceremony (necessitated by the withdrawal of originally announced host Kevin Hart). Burke promised that the ceremony would feature “huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy, and star power”.
