The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 2019 and took place on February 9, 2020, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. During the ceremony, AMPAS presented Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony was televised in the United States by ABC and produced by Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain. Citing the success of the format at the 91st presentation in 2019, ABC announced that the ceremony will again be conducted without a host.

During its board of directors meeting in April 2019, the Academy voted to rename the "Best Foreign Language Film" category to "Best International Feature Film". Animated and documentary films will also be eligible for the renamed award, but the category will still require nominees to have the majority of their dialogue be in a language other than English.

The category of Best Makeup and Hairstyling has been expanded from seven finalists and three nominees to ten finalists and five nominees.

In related events, the Academy held its 11th Annual Governors Awards ceremony at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center on October 27, 2019.
