The 94th Academy Awards are finally here after quite the chaotic awards season. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made way for plenty of much-welcomed surprises in this year’s Oscar nominations, but it’s time to see if the final results will reflect the sentiment. Academy CEO Dawn Hudson revealed earlier this week that this Oscars ceremony had the highest voter turnout in Academy history thus far, with approximately 9,487 members across 82 countries and 17 branches being eligible to vote. This makes this latest batch of Oscar winners especially interesting, to say the least.

Speaking of Oscar history, a Best Director win for Jane Campion could mark the first time women take back-to-back wins in the category ever. A win for CODA‘s Troy Kotsur would also mark the first Oscar given to a deaf actor in the Supporting Actor category. A slew of fan-favorite performers are up for their first potential Oscar trophies as well, including Kristen Stewart and Beyoncé. The much-talked-about #DuneSweep is expected to come true too, with the majority of technical awards – from Best Sound to Visuasl effects – seemingly all but in the bag.

The Power of the Dog is up for the most awards with 12 nominations, followed by Dune (10), Belfast (7), West Side Story (7), King Richard (6), Drive My Car (4), Nightmare Alley (4), Drive My Car (4), and Don’t Look Up (4). Unfortunately, despite some of this fantastic, much-deserved awards recognition, the Academy is moving forward with their decision to cut 8 categories from the live broadcast in an effort to boost ratings. A choice that has been met with tons of blowback, the Oscar winners for Documentary Short, Editing, Makeup/Hairstyling, Original Score, Production Design, Animated Short, Live-Action Short, and Sound winners will sadly not have their due time in the spotlight this year, but you’ll be the first to find out who they are right here on DiscussingFilm. Read on to see the full list of winners from the 2022 Oscars. You can also check out the final winners for the 2022 Golden Globes, Critics Choice, BAFTAs, SAG Awards, and our very own DiscussingFilm Critics Awards!
