Of course, there' always bound to be strong reaction to the Academy Award winners, and more than one person will be mad about subs. But the Film Academy is ultimately a subjective organization, and the winners are decided by those within the industry who are lucky enough to have a vote.

The past few years have seen an ongoing conversation about diversity and inclusion within the Academy, and how that reflects the way nominations and ultimately wins are decided upon. The 2020 Academy Awards once again inspired some backlash in this department, as all of the directors nominated are male, and the large majority of Acting nominees are white. We'll just have to see what moments inspire at the Academy Awards, and which go viral for all the wrong reasons.
