Oscar 2022 Nominations: The Full List here

Oscars 2022

With 12 nominations, Netflix’s “The Power of the Dog,” a revisionist Western that employs a tired genre to investigate toxic masculinity, dominated the Academy Awards on Tuesday. It was quickly followed by “Dune,” a vast adaptation of a popular sci-fi novel that defied critics to receive ten Oscar nominations despite the fact that it was initially thought to be unfilmable.

“Belfast,” Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age narrative, and Steven Spielberg’s gorgeous take on a beloved musical, each got seven nods. “CODA,” “Don’t Look Up,” “Drive My Car,” “King Richard,” “Licorice Pizza,” and “Nightmare Alley” are among the films nominated for best picture, along with “CODA,” “Don’t Look Up,” “Drive My Car,” “King Richard,” “Licorice Pizza,” and “Nightmare Alley.”

This year’s celebration of all things film comes at a time when the film industry is undergoing significant change. The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the box office, resulting in significant financial losses for several of the top Oscar contenders during their theatrical runs. Many films, including “West Side Story,” “Belfast,” and “Nightmare Alley,” failed to convert critical acclaim into actual ticket sales. At the same time, the public health problem has hastened big media corporations’ shift from theaters to streaming. Almost every media behemoth has established its own in-house Netflix opponent, from Disney to WarnerMedia, ViacomCBS to Comcast, and this is fundamentally changing the way they make and release films. According to COVID, WarnerMedia, for example, presented all of its new movies on HBOMax in 2021 at the same time they hit theaters, including “Dune” and “King Richard.” Apple, the producer of “CODA,” and Netflix, the backer of “The Power of the Dog” and “Don’t Look Up,” all received best picture nods.

Jane Campion made history when she was nominated for “The Power of the Dog” and became the first woman to receive two best director nominations. She was also nominated in the category of best adapted script. Branagh became the first individual to receive seven Oscar nominations in seven distinct categories with “Belfast.” He was recognized for directing, producing, and composing the film’s original screenplay. Branah had previously been nominated for Oscars for “Henry V,” “Swan Song,” “My Week With Marilyn,” and “Hamlet.”

Troy Kotsur, who co-starred with Marlee Matlin in “Children of a Lesser God,” became only the second deaf actor to be nominated for playing a deaf character, following in the footsteps of his co-star.

In a win for domestic harmony, Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz of “Being the Ricardo” became the sixth married couple to be nominated for acting in the same year. In the supporting acting categories, Kirstin Dunst and Jesse Plemons, who co-star in “The Power of the Dog,” were nominated.
