The 94th Academy Awards list was unveiled today, kicking off Oscar frenzy. With a broad collection of names, this year’s candidates are unlikely to be labeled as “Oscars too White.” To learn more about the list, read the article to know about Oscar 2022 nominations.
Even though the film business has had yet another exceptional year, Hollywood continues to celebrate its Biggest Night. This morning, Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross will reveal the 2022 Oscar nominations for the 94th Academy Awards. Even though the omicron version has placed some doubt on this year’s Oscars, moviegoers can still anticipate plenty of snubs and surprises from the Academy.
Aside from the pandemic, this year’s nominees might be more shocking than usual, given that the Critics’ Choice Awards were postponed to March and the Golden Globes were canceled. Consequently, Oscar’s predictions have been far more hazy than usual.
Oscar 2022 Nominations
Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross revealed the nominations for all 23 categories of the 94th Academy Awards on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at around 5:15 a.m. EDT. The nominations mirrored this, with Jane Campion’s Western drama The Power of the Dog and Denis Villeneuve’s epic sci-fi remake Dune receiving the most nods.
There were a few surprises (Kristen Stewart did slip into the Best Actress race, after all), and streaming services — notably Netflix — had an intense day, demonstrating how much the current epidemic has accelerated the industry upheaval we all expected. The complete list of nominations is here below.

Lady Gaga was one of the big snubs this year, with her performance in House of Gucci failing to get praise. Even though Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Competing — which is up for Best Picture — has an A-list cast, no one from that complete ensemble made an appearance in the acting categories.
