The 2022 Oscar Noms Are In — Who Made the Cut?

3 oscar nominated movies fro 2022: power of the dog, don't look up, and tick tick boom


And who got snubbed?

The most dramatic day in Hollywood is almost here: Oscar nominees have officially been announced, and believe it or not, two star-studded films nabbed most of them across the 23 categories. 

The Power of the Dog scored 12 nods, and Dune followed close behind with 10. Belfast and West Side Story tied with seven each, while King Richard earned six nominations. 

As always, there were some notable snubs and surprises. Lady Gaga came up short in getting a nomination for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in the crime drama House of Gucci and Jennifer Hudson was not recognized for her portrayal of Aretha Franklin in the biopic Respect.

In royally exciting news, Kristen Stewart picked up a nomination for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer after getting passed over in the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations. And J.K. Simmons made the list for playing a cantankerous co-star to Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz on Being the Ricardos.

Dying to know who actually takes home an Oscar? You’ll just have to wait and tune in on March 27. The 94th Academy Awards will be in-person and broadcast from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland live on ABC.

In the meantime, check out the full list of Oscar nominees below, and since most of these films are available on various streaming platforms, you can catch up from the comfort of your own couch.
