Oscar 2020: Highlights of the Show–Moments and Speeches

As expected, “Joker’s” Joaquin Phoenix earned the Best Actor Oscar for his stunning performance as a failed comic who turns to crime.

It was his first win after three previous nominations. Phoenix urged the audience to embrace animal rights and other social causes.

“Whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against injustice,” Phoenix said. “We’re talking about the fight against the belief that one nation, one people, one race, one gender or one species has the right to dominate, control, use and exploit another with impunity.”

He closed his speech, quoting a song lyric written by River Phoenix, his older brother who died of a drug overdose in 1993 at the age of 23. “Run to the rescue with love and peace will follow,” Phoenix said, choking back tears.

“Judy’s” Renée Zellweger was named best actress for her transformation into Judy Garland in her final years.

Zellweger had previously won an Oscar for her 2003 supporting turn in “Cold Mountain.” She used her speech to praise Garland’s legacy and to leak her story to those of other barrier-breakers such as Neil Armstrong and Harriet Tubman.
“Our heroes unite us,” said Zellweger. “They are the best among us who inspire us to find the best in ourselves.”

Brad Pitt won best supporting actor for his portrayal of a down-on-his-luck stuntman in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” while Laura Dern picked up a best supporting actor prize for her turn as a divorce lawyer in “Marriage Story.”

It is Pitt’s second Oscar, having previously won for producing “12 Years a Slave,” and his first for acting after three prior nominations. Pitt thanked the film’s writer and director Quentin Tarantino.

“You are original,” Pitt said. “You are one of a kind. The film industry would be a much drier place without you.” He also struck a political note both on stage and in the press conference backstage, slamming Senate Republicans for not calling witnesses during the recent impeachment trial of Donald Trump. “I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing, it’s a sad day, and I don’t think we should let it slide,” Pitt told the media. “I’m very serious about that.”

Laura Dern scored her first win after two prior nominations. She thanked her parents, the Oscar-nominated actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd, as well as “Marriage Story’s” writer and director Noah Baumbach.

“Noah wrote a movie about love and about breaching divisions in the name and in the honor of family and home and — hopefully for all of us — in the name of our planet,” said Dern.  Dern’s is the first acting statue ever awarded to a Netflix film.

Taika Waititi nabbed a best adapted screenplay prize for “Jojo Rabbit,” a World War II satire about a young boy living in the waning days of Nazi Germany. Waititi, who is of Māori descent, used his time on stage to dedicate his award to “all the indigenous kids in the world who want to do art and dance and write stories. We are original storytellers and we can make it here as well.”

“American Factory,” the story of a Chinese company that opens a factory in Ohio, won best documentary. The film is the first produced by Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground Productions. Julie Parker Benello, the film’s co-director, sounded an activist note. “Working people have it harder and harder these days,” she said. “And we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.”

“Toy Story 4” was recognized as best animated feature, becoming the tenth Pixar feature to earn the honor.

In another milestone, Hildur Guðnadóttir became only the fourth woman to win an Academy Award for best score and the first in 23 years for her atmospheric work on “Joker.”

This year’s contest is taking place in a period of change and tumult in the movie business. The Walt Disney Company has subsumed much of 21st Century Fox and stripped the company of its Fox moniker, WarnerMedia is adjusting to life under its new corporate parent AT&T, and most of the major studios are preparing to wade into the streaming realm. Last November saw the launch of Disney Plus, and WarnerMedia and Comcast are joining the fray with the upcoming debuts of their Netflix challengers: HBOMax and Peacock. Quibi, the most unorthodox of these new challengers, used the Oscars telecast to promote itself in ads hawking its platform. The company, which is being run by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, plans to produce 10-minute episodes of high-quality, big-budgeted content.

With an eye towards the increased competition, Netflix has been working to establish itself as a destination for auteurs such as Martin Scorsese (“The Irishman”) and Noah Baumbach (“Marriage Story”). That’s resulted in a lot of awards attention. Netflix leads the field for Oscar contenders with 24 nominations.

The Oscars have received a great deal of criticism for their failure to nominate female directors and people of color. Only one acting nominee, Cynthia Erivo for “Harriet,” is black and no women directors were included among the nominated filmmakers.

Only five female directors have ever been nominated in the Oscars nearly century long history, and only one, “The Hurt Locker’s” Kathryn Bigelow, has won. In a piece of haute couture protest, presenter Natalie Portman wore a Dior cape embroidered with the names of women such as Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”) and Lulu Wang (“The Farewell”), whose movies last year were snubbed in the directing category. It was also a topic that came up in several acceptance speeches.

“Representation matters deeply,” said Karen Rupert Toliver, the director of the best animated short “Hair Love,” the story of a black man who must do his daughter’s hair for the first time. “Especially in cartoons. Because in cartoons that’s how we first see our movies and it’s how we shape our lives and how we think about how we see the world.”

The broadcast went host-less for the second year in a row. The 2019 telecast dispensed with an emcee after the original choice, Kevin Hart, stepped away in the wake of controversy over his past homophobic tweets. It didn’t hurt the ratings. Some 29.6 million viewers tune in, an increase of 3 million viewers from the all-time low ratings in 2018. The perpetual ratings struggles point to another issue for the Oscars. There have become a glut of televised awards shows for movie lovers to choose from, everything from the Screen Actors Guild Awards to the Indie Spirits are being broadcast, with shows such as the Globes stealing some of the Oscars’ thunder with their choice of edgy hosts such as Ricky Gervais.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has expended a great deal of energy and risked nearly $400 million to create a new museum devoted to the history of movies. Construction on the ambitious Renzo Piano designed space has been plagued by cost overruns and delays. The organization announced on the telecast that the museum will open its doors to the public on December 14, 2020, three years after it was originally supposed to be completed.

The broadcast kicked off with Janelle Monae and Billy Porter singing “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and “Come Alive,” with original lyrics dedicated to the night’s nominees. Monae peppered her opener with nods to the lack of diversity among the nominees, praising the women directors who made “phenomenal films,” and noting that she was proud to be a “black queer artist telling stories.”

After that galvanic musical set, Steve Martin and Chris Rock, two past Oscars hosts, delivered a rough approximation of the typical opening monologue, cracking jokes about the Iowa Caucus meltdown and Amazon chief Jeff Bezos’ divorce.

“They don’t really have hosts anymore,” Martin said. “Why is that?”
“Twitter,” joked Rock. “Everybody’s got an embarrassing tweet somewhere.”

It was a broadcast that mixed agitation for greater onscreen representation and calls for wider civic action with musical performances from Eminem and bleeped jokes courtesy of Ray Romano.
