Avengers: Endgame ended up having only one nomination in the recently concluded 92nd Academy Awards - for Achievement in Visual Effects. And it is another matter that it even lost that category to Sam Mendes' gritty war drama, 1917. To rub more salt to its wounds, its fiercest competitor DC Comics took home two Oscars thanks to Joker with Best Actor in a Leading Role (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Original Score. But the matter doesn't end there. Oscar 2020 Broadcast Viewership Ratings Were All-time Low, 3 million Less Than the Previous Academy Awards.
