The Best Academy Awards Viewing Parties in Los Angeles 2020

The Academy Awards are this Sunday which, if you are reading this, means you are either a) attending the Oscars or b) deciding on what you will be serving during your Oscar party or c) wondering where you could go to watch the Oscars with a friend or ten. Below I’ve highlighted the best options in Los Angeles, from Santa Monica to Los Feliz, where the 92nd Oscars will air on the big (or sometimes little) screen and bottles of champagne will be popping.

Joker leads the 2020 field with 11 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917 and The Irishman received 10 nods each. The rest of the Best Picture nominees include Ford v Ferrari (4 nominations), Jojo Rabbit (6), Little Women (6), Marriage Story (6), and Parasite (6). Who is your favorite to win in the acting awards? Could Parasite potentially upset frontrunners 1917, The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and take the top prize?

Viewing parties across the city invite you to make your predictions, sip an Oscar-themed cocktail, and join the global audience of viewers as the winners are announced.
