Dazzies 2020 (My Awards for 2020)

My awards picks for the films of 2020.

Only eligible films are ones released in the US in 2020 (using IMDb & other sources to check). Releases can be streaming, theatrical, or home media, just not film festival exclusives. My categories are my own, not all are Oscar categories. Unlike the Oscars, no 2021 releases count (though 2020 awards runs are eligible). I also excluded films sent to me via Twitter DMs.

My previous awards: 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016

All eligible films are listed below. The notes lists each nomination. My complete ranking of the films is here.

Each category has 1 winner, 5 nominees, and 5 honourable mentions. Nominees and mentions listed alphabetically.
