Chris Rock and Steve Martin began the show with a not-opening monologue

This year, there was no host for the Oscars which meant no opening monologue. However, Chris Rock and Steve Martin launched right into a hilarious sermon. While talking about the no-host policy of Oscars 2020, they joked about being demoted. Furthermore, Chris Rock joked about Jeff Bezos and cops’ relationship with black people. Some of his jokes are as follows:

“Mahershala Ali has two Oscars. You know what that means when cops pull him over? Nothing.”

“Jeff Bezos is so rich he got divorced and is still the richest man in the world. He saw Marriage Story and thought it was a comedy.”

“Marty, I’ve got to tell you I love the first season of The Irishman.”

At Oscars 2020, a female composer won an award after 20 years.

After 1997, the award for best original score went to a female composer. Icelandic composer,  Hildur Guðnadóttir, won the award for Joker. In her acceptance speech, she said:

 “To the girls, to the women, to the mothers, to the daughters who hear the music bubbling within, please speak up. We need to hear your voices.”

Parasite makes history at Oscars 2020

For the first time ever, a non-English language film won the awards for best picture, director, original screenplay and international feature film. Not only that, the director of Parasite, Bong Joon Ho, was a delight throughout the ceremony. After winning the best international feature film award, he revealed that he was going to drink till the next morning. Surely, he was in the mood to celebrate. During his acceptance speech, Bong Joon Ho honored the director, Martin Scorsese. He said:

Thank you. After winning best international feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax. Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that “The most personal is the most creative.” That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese. When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese’s films. Just to be nominated was a huge honor. I never thought I would win.
