The Romy Awards 2020 ceremony was supposed to take place on April 18, but was later postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet finally, on March 23, 2020, the winners of what is considered one of Austria’s most important film and television awards, established by the Kurier newspaper, were announced. .

The best of 2020

The Romy Awards 2020 ceremony was supposed to take place on April 18. Yet, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this was not the only event to be cancelled or postponed. And so, with an online ceremony – complete with award presentation to the winners strictly in the open air and according to safety and distancing rules – the winners of what is considered one of Austria’s most important film and television awards, established by the Kurier newspaper back in 1990 and whose nominations were announced on March 3, 2020, were finally announced on March 23, 2020.

Once again this year, then, the famous statuette representing actress Romy Schneider – conceived by film critic Rudolf John, also this year President of the Jury – was handed over to Austria’s best-loved representatives of the entertainment industry in a special ceremony presented by Andi Knoll.

In addition to the audience voting, a special jury – chaired by Rudolf John and composed of the journalists Julia Pühringer, Martin Wurnitsch, Horst-Günther Fiedler, Johannes Bruckenberger, Isabella Leitenmüller-Wallnöfer, Dietmar Pribil and Christoph Silber – awarded special Romy Awards 2020. This second award ceremony was definitively cancelled and the names of the winners were announced directly to the press.

It has not been an easy time for the film and television industry. Yet, the desire to produce art is still very strong. But, in any case, the fact that activities are slowly resuming (with possible reopenings of cinemas on July 1) is a sign that, despite past difficulties, no one has given up and, on the contrary, people are ready to start again even stronger than before. And perhaps the presentation of these awards can be interpreted as a first step towards normality, looking forward to a better future.

Below are all the winners of the coveted Romy Awards 2020. Congratulations to everyone and see you next year!
