Academy Awards 2022: Full list of Oscar nominations

For the first time in three years, the Oscars ceremony will finally have a host.

After another year in a pandemic that affected movie theatre attendance in the United States and saw streaming services make new inroads into Hollywood, the 94th Academy Awards on Tuesday announced its nominees.

Two films that were viewed on the big-screen and streamed into homes received notable nominations: Jane Campion’s gothic western, The Power of the Dog, and Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic, Dune.

Netflix’s, The Power of the Dog, also led nominations with 12 nods, including best picture, best director and recognition for all of its top actors.

Here are all the nominees for the main categories. Winners will be announced on March 27:
