The Game Awards 2020: Winners List (Updating Live)
The coronavirus pandemic may have impacted the way we hold live events, but this year’s Game Awards is still on.
The 2020 ceremony is airing live from Los Angeles, London and Tokyo from three in-studio, audience-less locations. Speaking to Variety in September, host Geoff Keighley said they “would never normally be able to have three cities live” — which inspired the big-scale idea.
“This is a unique year of circumstances, so let’s try that. I think it sends a really great message, and I think it’s what I’d like to do more of,” he said.
The show will feature musical performances from Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and appearances from special guests including Brie Larson, Christopher Nolan, Gal Gadot, JackSepticEye, John David Washington, Josef Fares, Keanu Reeves, Nolan North, Reggie Fils-Aime, Stephen A. Smith, Tom Holland and Troy Baker.
In addition to musical performances, celebrity appearances and special segments, the show will also feature exclusive announcements, as it has in past years. Expect news from “Among Us,” “Call of Duty,” “Dragon Age” and “Crimson Desert,” among others.
Naughty Dog’s hit sequel “The Last of Us Part II” leads the nominations with 10. Following close behind are Supergiant Games’ “Hades” with eight and Sucker Punch’s “Ghost of Tsushima” with seven. All three are up for game of the year; the other nominees for the top prize are Nintendo’s “Animal Crossing: New Horizons,” id Software’s “Doom Eternal” and Square Enix’s “Final Fantasy VII Remake.”
The Game Awards, starting at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET, will air livestream for free globally across 45 partners, including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and Steam. See a full list of winners below, updated live as they’re announced.Game of the Year
