The Oscars 2022 nominations list in full
The Academy has announced the addition of two new awards to its list: the Audience Award for Best Picture, which is voted on using the hashtag # OscarsFanFavorite, and the Audience Award for Best Scene, which is voted on using the hashtag # OscarsCheerMoment.
The complete list of Academy Award nominees for 2022 is below.
- Army of the Dead
The huge audience for director Zack Snyder made sure to leave a mark on that award by voting for his horror movie “Army of the Dead”, as his previous movie “Justice League” was not eligible for the award because it was not released in cinemas.
- Fans of pop artist Camila Cabello (“The Camilles”) are no strangers to audience-voted prizes, which is how her film Cinderella made the list of finalists.
- The Power of the Dog
The purpose of the award was to include and represent various moviegoers, but that did not prevent Jane Champion’s The Power of the Dog from appearing on the two lists: Best Picture (Academic Voted) and Best Picture (People Voted).
The second joint Academy Award and Audience Award film is Dune, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, who have a huge young fan base.
Malignant is one of the most-traded horror films of 2021, which is why horror film fans got together to represent their genre at the Oscars in 2022, in order to make up for the Academy’s disregard of it.
Johnny Depp’s fans were also keen to see him appear on the list with his latest movie, Minamata.
- Sing 2
There is no doubt that the second part of the popular animated movie, Sing 2, will appear on the list, especially since its stars, Halsey, Scarlett Johansson, and Pharrell Williams, co-star.
- Spider-man: No Way Home
The latest Marvel movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, was the most predictable movie to win the award, as Spider-Man fans got together for the first time, whether they preferred Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, or Tobey Maguire.
- The Suicide Squad
The second superhero movie on the list is “The Suicide Squad,” directed by James Gunn and starring Margot Robbie, John Cena, and Idris Elba.
- Tick, Tick… Boom
This is Andrew Garfield’s second appearance on the list, and Tick, Tick… This was Boom’s third appearance at the Oscars, as it was also nominated for Best Actor and Best Editing.
- Army of the Dead
Voting ends tomorrow, and the Oscars will be held on March 27th.
