It’s weird to think about, but…

Like, this actually happened in 2020.

A different time. A different place. A truly different world.


It’s hard to believe, but Charlotte Awbery was discovered in the subway this year.


Trump was acquitted on both articles of impeachment by the Senate in 2020.

The Trump impeachment feels like it happened a billion years ago.

You probably already forgot that Nancy Pelosi tore up Trump’s speech during the State of the Union.


It wasn’t too long ago that everyone was talking about Cheer.

“Daytona” this. “Daytona” that.

Cheer feels like it came out 72 years ago, definitely not in 2020.


Speaking of TV shows, Tiger King came out nine months ago, right at the beginning of this mess — March 20, to be exact.


Another TV show that feels like it came out a trillion years ago but actually came in 2020 is Love Is Blind.

As fiftysomething-year-old moms love to say, “bless this mess.”


And one of the best/worst characters in TV history, Big Ed, came into our lives this year.


Believe it or not, in the beginning of 2020, people still went to movie theaters.


Sonic The Hedgehog and Bad Boys for Life were huge movies in 2020.

So was Uncut Gems.

It technically released in 2019, but it was a Christmas Day release, and most of the attention it got was in 2020.


The Oscars still happened in 2020.

Remember when people were outraged that Jennifer Lopez wasn’t nominated for an Oscar?

Take me back to everyone talking about Hustlers.

Remember when Bong Joon-ho and Parasite rightfully got what they deserved?

Tom Hanks wasn’t the ‘rona guy then, he was the guy who freaked out when they tried to cut off Parasite’s Best Picture acceptance speech.


I’m sorry, but it’s just blowing my mind that Parasite’s win was in 2020.

The great Jen/Brad reunion happened in 2020.

It’s seriously impossible to believe that there were (at least) seven people running for president earlier this year, like just at the beginning of March.

To put it in perspective: It’s crazy to think that Pete Buttigieg won Iowa back in February.

Also, remember Mike Bloomberg?

.@MariahCarey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is officially No. 1 on the #Hot100 for a third week.

As this is the first chart of the 2020s, she becomes the first artist in history to rule the chart in four separate decades: 1990s, 2000s, 2010s & 2020s.

And it was also #1 at the end of 2020.


Baby Yoda was reaching peak popularity in early 2020.


Laura Dern said she saw him at a basketball game.

This meme just feels legit old.


Remember how every company made a baby version of their mascots? Remember Mr. Peanut dying and being reincarnated into Baby Peanut? That was 2020.


Remember the roughly two-week period where everyone was talking about Jessica Simpson because she released a new book?

It feels like a trillion years ago we were trying to figure out if she got Nick Lachey a gift or not.


“Megxit” happened in 2020.

Quibi launched in April 2020. It shut down in October.


San Francisco turned orange just a few months ago in September.


Schitt’s Creek won everything at the Emmys a few days after that.


The NBA had games in 2020 with actual crowds.

Like those are real human people in the stands, not creepy-ass Black Mirror–esque LED screens.


Remember concerts? This was a Katy Perry concert in February.

An audience. People together. This happened in 2020!

To sum up 2020: Time isn’t real.
