Oscar nominations 2022 full list: Will Smith, Kristen Stewart, Andrew Garfield and more
And the nominees are …
The 2022 Academy Awards are almost upon us — the night when A-list actors, singers and other members of the Hollywood elite will descend upon the steps of the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles next month.
While the telecast is set to air on March 27 on ABC, the nominations were announced by Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross on Feb. 8.
The pair revealed the nominees across 23 categories in the announcement, which streamed on the Oscars website and the Film Academy’s social media accounts.
Kristen Stewart scored a nom for her role as Princess Diana in “Spencer,” and will see herself competing against fan-favorites such as Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”) and Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”). “The Power of the Dog” and “Dune” scored 12 and 10 nominations, respectively. Will Smith may have two Oscars under his belt in one year this March, as he has received a nom for Best Actor and Best Picture for his role in “King Richard,” which he also produced.
“West Side Story” scored seven nods amid controversy with its star, Ansel Elgort. There were also several couples in the mix who won nominations. Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst both received nominations for their roles in “The Power of the Dog” while Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz each separately won nods for “Being the Ricardos” and “Parallel Mothers.”
Nominations voting ended on Feb. 1.
It was disclosed last month that the Oscars ceremony would finally have a host after three years of going host-less. The last time a celeb graced the stage to crack awkward monologue jokes and make fun of the nominees was in 2018, when Jimmy Kimmel took the gig.
