The Academy Awards are back and on schedule. After last year’s train station awards show and lackluster viewership, this year promises to be a bit more exciting. In order to avoid drama with the host, this position will not be announced until closer to the show, if at all, with a host opening the broadcast without a prior press release. This may draw attention to the show for people who skipped last year. The films nominated this year were mostly available via streaming platforms or are now readily available on-demand for home viewing. With films people can watch without leaving home, and an awards show that promises to be more interesting than last year, this Oscars may be the turn the industry is looking for to bring audiences back to watching their biggest night. See below for the full list of Oscar nominations 2022.
