Who will win one (or even several) statuette(s) on February 10, 2020 during the 92nd Academy Awards ? If it will be necessary to wait until the envelopes open on the stage of the Dolby Theater of Hollywood in Los Angeles to find out, remains the question of the nominations.
Being nominated for the Oscars is already a consecration in itself, some actors are also subscribed to this status without ever winning the prestigious award at home. After this very rich year on the side of the dark rooms, the american magazine variety opened the bets by rounding up his favorites.
If many imagine that Joaquin Phoenix is the only one capable of winning the Oscar for best actor this year for his performance in the film Joker of Todd Philipps, he is finally not so alone. Actors like Adam Driver or Robert De Niro could steal the show.
For the best film, the Palme d’or came from South Korea Parasite could well win against the Netflix blockbuster The Irishman or the new adaptation of Four daughters of Dr. March, Little Women.
