Oscar Nominations 2022: See the Full List

As the last few years have shown us, you can always count on awards shows to persevere, even in the most trying of times. The 2022 Oscars nominations, if nothing else, represent the inspiring endurance of this annual tradition, while also highlighting some of the year’s most exciting creative achievements in film.

This year’s nominees represent a number of significant trends. Take, for example, Netflix, which has established a presence in the Oscar race and has some serious contenders in its stable, including The Power of the Dog, Passing, Don’t Look Up, and The Lost Daughter.

Oh, not to mention tick, tick…Boom!, which is not just one of many musicals in contention for recognition this year, but also one of the several projects which might help Lin-Manuel Miranda complete his EGOT. (Though the smart money is on Miranda getting nominated for Best Original Song, for Encanto‘s “Dos Oruguitas.”)

On the complete opposite side of the spectrum from that tiny intimate musical fable is Dune, Denis Villeneuve’s epic adaptation of (the first half of) the sci-fi classic. Dune might pick up a Mad Max: Fury Road-esque number of awards in below-the-line categories, alongside other technically accomplished films like West Side Story and House of Gucci.

This is a year where both Lady Gaga and Beyoncé might wake up to find out that they’re Oscar nominees — in completely different categories. A year where Beyoncé could lose to Billie Eilish. A year where Lady Gaga’s competition in the Best Actress race could include Alana Haim. In short, it’s a wild year.
