Follow this story for updates on the winners –

Terrifying clown or ageing mobsters? Nostalgia for Tinseltown or the muddy trenches of a century-old war? Or a leftfield cult film from South Korea?

Hollywood hands out its highest honours on Sunday (Feb 9) – Monday morning (Feb 10) Singapore time – at an Oscars ceremony that could see a number of historic firsts and an all-white actor winner podium that has revived the #OscarsSoWhite debate.

Brad Pitt, Elton John, Charlize Theron, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson and Martin Scorsese are among the A-List nominees, alongside the little-known cast of Korean-language drama Parasite, which threatens to steal the thunder from Hollywood's biggest names.

All eyes are on the coveted best picture prize, which awards watchers believe is a three-way race between independent social satire Parasite, British director Sam Mendes' immersive World War One movie 1917 from Universal Pictures, and Quentin Tarantino's love letter to show business, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, from Sony Pictures.

Parasite, from best director nominee Bong Joon-ho, looks certain to win the newly named best international film category and is seeking to enter the history books as the first film in a foreign language to win a best picture Oscar.

Bong won his first Oscar of the night for Best Original Screenplay. In his acceptance speech, he called it a "win for South Korea".

Dark comic book movie Joker from Warner Bros, which has a leading 11 nominations, Netflix divorce drama Marriage Story and the streaming service's mob epic The Irishman, race-car drama Ford v Ferrari from 20th Century Studios, and novel adaptation Little Women from Sony Pictures, round out the competition for the top prize.

The winners are chosen by the 8,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the show has no host for a second year.

Netflix boosted its Hollywood credentials by getting a leading 24 nominations this year, including for drama The Two Popes, animated movie Klaus, and documentary American Factory. Yet the coveted best picture Oscar may elude it yet again on Sunday, awards watchers say.

American Factory, a film from Barack and Michelle Obama's nascent production house chronicling what happened to a group of Ohio autoworkers laid off during the 2008 recession, won the Oscar for best documentary feature.

The documentary, directed by filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, was the first release from Higher Ground Productions, a company the former US president and first lady formed in 2018 in a multi-year collaboration with the Netflix streaming service.

A poor year for diversity, with Cynthia Erivo the only actor of colour in the race and an all-male director field, has revived the #OscarsSoWhite debate of four years ago.

The first presenters of the evening, Steve Martin and Chris Rock, poked fun at this lack of diversity. Martin quipped that something was missing from the best directors list this year, to which Rock replied, "Vaginas?"

Pitt has stormed back as a leading Hollywood man after a period out of the public eye during his bitter divorce from Angelina Jolie.

He won the first award of the night with a best supporting actor Oscar for his laid-back stuntman role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

It was the first acting Oscar for Pitt, 56, after three decades in the movie industry. He previously won an Academy Award as a producer in 2014 for best picture 12 Years A Slave.

Pitt said he was "gobsmacked" at the win during his acceptance speech. He also dedicated the award to his kids, saying, "This is for my kids who colour everything I do. I adore you."

Laura Dern picked up her first Oscar for best supporting actress for her role as a divorce lawyer in Netflix's Marriage Story. She dedicated the award to her parents and "acting heroes" Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern.

Joaquin Phoenix is the favourite to win his first Oscar for a disturbing performance as a loner clown who turns to violence in Joker, while Scarlett Johansson is nominated for her roles in both Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story. No actor has won two Oscars on the same night.

Catch the live broadcast of the Oscars on Channel 5 or MeWatch from 7.30am to 9am (red carpet) and from 9am to noon (actual awards show), with a repeat telecast at 10.45pm later in the day.
