Meanwhile six-time nominee 'Little Women' only won one award, for costume design, in an awards ceremony that featured numerous onstage comments praising the work of female directors.
The 2020 Oscars marked another disappointing awards ceremony for the team behind Netflix's Martin Scorsese-directed mob drama, The Irishman. After being shut out at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, the epic, decade-spanning and decade-in-the-making story starring Robert De Niro and Oscar nominees Al Pacino and Joe Pesci failed to win any of the 10 Oscars for which it was nominated.
Still, Scorsese got a few shout-outs from the stage, with Chris Rock and Steve Martin mentioning the film and the director in their monologue and best director winner Bong Joon Ho taking a minute to note how, as an aspiring director, he was particularly inspired by Scorsese, comments that prompted the Academy Awards audience to give Scorsese a standing ovation.
Meanwhile, other top nominees had a relatively disappointing night, with six-time nominees Jojo Rabbit, Marriage Story and Little Women only taking home one award each. Little Women's prize was arguably the lowest profile award of those one by Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story, only taking home the prize for best costume design. It's poor showing was somewhat ironic given that a theme throughout the show was praising the work of female directors, like Little Women helmer Greta Gerwig, despite the fact that none were nominated for best director again this year. Jojo Rabbit won best adapted screenplay while Marriage Story's Laura Dern won the best supporting actress award she was expected to take home
While Once Upon A Time in Hollywood won two awards, for production design and best supporting actor Brad Pitt, writer-director-producer Quentin Tarantino didn't win any of the awards for which he was nominated including high-profile prizes best original screenplay, best director and best picture.
Similarly, 11-time nominee Joker only won two awards, for best score and best actor Joaquin Phoenix, high-profile victories but a significant drop, numbers-wise, from its leading spot among nominated films.
Also while Parasite was predicted to do well at the 2020 Oscars, with the best picture race shaping up as a battle between the Bong Joon Ho film and Sam Mendes' 1917, many pundits expected 1917 to win best picture or for Mendes to win best director, if not both, particularly after 1917 won the top prizes at the BAFTA Awards last week, in the middle of Oscar voting, after winning the top prizes at the DGA Awards and PGA Awards. And while 1917 won three awards, all were in technical categories.
Other multiple Oscar nominees that were shut out included Harriet and The Two Popes.

Tom Hardy and his Venom tongue recently gave fans a first look at Woody Harrelson's suddenly sharp-dressed man, the antagonistic Cletus Kasady, a.k.a., “Carnage.” He'll be the primary villain, although we will hopefully soon hear more about who will portray Shriek. Michelle Williams will return as Anne Weying, and Andy Serkis is directing this installment, although Harrelson's the presence who's stoking the most excitement lately. He's lost the crazy red wig, it seems, and fresh Instagrams from photographer Greg Williams show how production fared late last week.
It looks like Harrelson and Hardy whose characters are former cellmates and not friendly now are having a fine time with some lighter moments on the set. Harrelson's looking much more conventional and less like a prison-bound Sideshow Bob. Yet the comics revealed that the Venom symbiote fused with Kasady, so look out for that to take center stage in the sequel. Oh, and Hardy's Eddie Brock got stuck in the rain.
Hardy posted some additional images taken by Greg Williams on his Instagram. Director Andy Serkis looks like he's having a ball, and screenwriter Kelly Marcel's on the scene with Hardy having been very involved in the scriptwriting process as well. Given that the film managed to pull in over $213 million at domestic theaters and $856 million worldwide, let's hope this sequel doesn't disappoint the masses. With Harrelson on board, though, this team shouldn't have a problem keeping the guilty-pleasure vibe alive.
Venom 2 grins its way into theaters on October 2.
His additional TV credits include 'Desperate Housewives' and 'Days of our Lives.'
John Callahan, best known for All My Children, has died at age 66. His death was revealed by his ex-wife, fellow actress Eva LaRue, who posted a tribute via Instagram on Saturday afternoon.
No cause of death was given.
"May flights of Angels Wing you to your rest my dear friend," wrote LaRue. "Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated — my great friend, co-parent partner, and loving father to Kaya. That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize and to song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two stepping bad ass!"
She went on to call him an "All My Children soap stud," noting that she is "beyond broken hearted" by the loss. Included in the post were several pictures of Callahan with family members and work colleagues.
The actor was born in 1953 in New York and began his career in 1982 in an episode of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. He went on to become a series regular in Falcon Crest from 1986-88, and from there, he joined the cast of Santa Barbara and then All My Children, playing Edmund Grey in the latter daytime soap series for over 300 episodes.
Additional TV credits include Days of Our Lives, Desperate Housewives, Watch Over Me and The Bay. On screen, he had roles in Marvin's Room and Do it or Die, among others. His final roles were in A Doggone Adventure and Loyalty.
On Saturday afternoon, the Daytime Emmys Twitter account also posted about Callahan's passing, writing that they are "devastated" to learn of the actor's passing.
Callahan is survived by his daughter with LaRue, named Kaya.
