Oscar Season!

Oscar Shorts 2020 Logo

Cornell Cinema is pleased to present the Ithaca premieres of the Oscar-Nominated Short Films for the 15th consecutive year. With all three categories offered—Animated, Live Action and Documentary—this is your annual chance to predict the winners (and have the edge in your Oscar pool)! A perennial hit with audiences around the country and the world, don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, February 9th. The list of nominees will be available online shortly after they’re announced on January 13th.

In addition to the shorts, though, Cornell Cinema will be presenting many other films that have been shortlisted for their respective categories and may go on to fill a coveted nominee slot, and still others that we’re sure will end up among the nominees and winners in several other major categories. For instance, these three films have been shortlisted for Best Documentary Feature: Aquarela, The Biggest Little Farm, and Midnight Family. These three have been shortlisted for Best International Feature: Beanpole, Pain and Glory, and Parasite.

And here’s just a smattering of some of the titles we’re showing this Spring that are very likely to garner one or more nominations in categories like Best Picture, Director, Actor/Actress, Screenplay, etc: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Bombshell, A Hidden Life, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and Uncut Gems. So catch them all on the big screen while you can, either before or after the Academy Awards ceremony on February 9th!
