The Best, Worst and Most Chaotic Moments of the 2020 Oscars

Just like any great film, the 92nd Annual Academy Awards saved its best and biggest twist for the end. Parasite, the Korean class warfare thriller, pulled out a stunning upset over 1917, sending the crowd into euphoric disbelief. The win capped off a frenzied and unpredictable night that, while filled with questionable decision-making, showed that the Academy Awards might genuinely be making a concerted effort to change.

The results come from 34,000 respondents in 28 distinct markets, which give it a unique and credible global perspective. As you might expect, the world is having trouble with trust, and it has been in decline for quite some time. But this year, there’s an odd parado...
