The date of the 92nd Oscars telecast will move to Sunday, February 9, 2020, from the previously announced February 23. The Board of Governors took this charge seriously. Sure. Will it mean as much if it's in a special category that some fans view as a consolation prize that lessens the impact of the blockbusters while also potentially dulling the shine on the Best Picture category?
