2022 Oscar Nominations Have Been Announced

Power Of The Dog and Dune Lead With The Most Nominations 

By Dolores Quintana

The nominations for the 94th annual Academy Awards have been announced and there are some surprises, some snubs and some nominations that have made history.

It is another great year at the Academy for streaming services, Netflix scored 27 nominations this year and got two best picture nominations, for “The Power Of The Dog” and “Don’t Look Up” and a best director nod for Jane Campion, who is the first female director to be nominated twice in the category. “The Power Of The Dog” was also the most nominated film for the year. “Don’t Look Up” received four nominations. 

Apple did very well this year with six nominations, including a Best Picture nod for “Coda” directed by Siân Heder. Heder was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.  Another first was achieved when Denzel Washington received his Best Actor nomination for “The Tragedy Of Macbeth”. With this tenth nod, he is both the most Academy Award nominated Black man in history. 

Amazon Studios didn’t do as well as last year, down from 12 nominations to four nominations, but three of them were in major acting categories for “Being The Ricardos” and one for hair and makeup for “Coming 2 America”.

Warner Brothers nabbed 16 nominations, ten of which went to Dennis Villaneuve’s “Dune” and one of the snubs was that Villaneuve did not get a Best Director nomination. However, “Dune” was one of the rare box office hits that had a simultaneous streaming release. Disney got 23 Oscar nominations. 20th Century Studios and MGM/United Artists got 8 nominations each. Neon scored 6 nominations and A24 nabbed 3. 

“Drive My Car” was another record breaker with its Best Picture nomination. It was released by Sideshow + Janus Films and is the first Japanese film to nab a Best Picture nomination. The film’s co-writer and director Ryusuke Hamaguchi is the third Japanese director to score a Best Director nomination. The film was also nominated for Best International Picture.
