92nd Oscars
The Academy Awards

Critics Consensus

Parasite's sweep and some strong performances -- including the singular Janelle Monáe's opening number -- couldn't save a listless ceremony from its own host-less chaos.

Critic Reviews for The Academy Awards 92nd Oscars

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (14)

When the roster of honorees looks nothing like the presenters and performers on Oscar night, the self-congratulatory tone doesn't work.

Sometimes, a few good moments are enough to get you there. And there were a few good ones throughout the Oscarcast Sunday night.

"Parasite" won four Academy Awards. Nothing else matters.

With this year's ceremony, both in its particulars and the results that it delivered, Academy members faced up to their own symbolic part in the dire state of the nation.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

The Academy Awards could find a charismatic host who cares about movies and write gags that feel playful and fresh rather than safe and obligatory. They could, in other words, actually cater to the captive audience of film fans...

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Would that the producers of the 2020 Oscars possessed such mastery of measure. Maybe it could have prevented us from remembering that the entire three hour and 31 minute production was an act of over-correction.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

When it counted, the Academy delivered an electrifying and also quite heartwarming surprise. But its identity crisis was the explicit theme of the night, and the ghosts of less enlightened and open-minded Oscars' past floated freely around the room...

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

It ended an Oscars ceremony that seemed to otherwise be apologizing for its front-runners, in a production that felt like it was trying to overcome the narrative its own voters had created.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

The Oscar ceremony used to command high ground in American culture. This year it proved beyond doubt that it has become a hostage to Twitter... In so doing, Oscar ushered himself further toward the point of total irrelevance.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

By the time the broadcast ended, about a half hour past its scheduled three-hour running time, the Oscars did generate some feelings of gratitude. Not that this was a good show -- but that it was finally over.

Feb 10, 2020 | Full Review…

We also got to watch the show correct itself and evolve in real time: When the Parasite producers had their mics cut during their acceptance speeches, a crowd protest led to producers turning them back on. So, fixing things still is possible.

Just give Olivia Colman the job and spare us another year of laments.
