Dolby technologies support 2020 Oscar nominees

Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos powers the audio visual experience for audiences

by Andy Bassett

The Oscar 2020 nominees have taken place and, among the surprises and disappointments, it seems that Dolby Laboratories is a constant factor throughout quality films.

There are always shocks, surprises and, for some, disappointments as the annual Oscar nominees are announced. Shoe-ins that are overlooked, left field choices that come out of nowhere and occasional crcrowd-pleasershat get the recognition to match the box office.

This year has seen the likes of Joker, a completely different take on the comic book genre, run away with the nominations while other more mainstream movies performed as expected, including the likes of 1917, Scorsese’s return to the genre that defines him, The Irishman, Marriage Story, Tarrantino’s (supposedly penultimate) Once Upon a Time ...in Hollywood, Ford vs Ferrai (or Le Mans ‘66 in the UK), Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, How to Train your Dragon: The Hidden World, Klaus, Toy Story 4 and Ad Astra all get nods in various categories.

As always, AVForums dedicated review team has seen most of the movies on offer and you can read their reviews by following the links
