Google, the search giant, has just launched an Oscar 2020 “exclusive experience” tool to make it easier for users to find Oscar-related content. The portal provides a preview of the highlights, including information about the Academy’s historical winners and the new nominees, as well as video playback links that easily jump to relevant sites.

Typically, users look up in the search box for information such as the actor’s name in connection with the 2020 Oscars, and then Google returns a matching star photo, along with a highlight edgy video from ABC.
But before Sunday’s Oscars, users can see more from Google’s search for “Oscar 2020,” including nominees for actors, costume designers, directors, editors and more.
Users can also click on the links to each movie listed to find out which platforms have the resources available on demand. Or display data about movies, stars, directors and other Oscars through the Google Trending page.
You can also view popular searches, trends over time, and more. The version is now on the front page and will continue to be available after the Oscars.
Finally, users can ask Google Assistant’s assistant for information about the Oscars, eliminating the hassle of typing.
For example, you can ask which film won the Best Picture award, the start time of the awards ceremony, and Google will offer a number of GiIF formats on its Tenor platform.
