The 2022 Oscars – or the 94th Academy Awards, as the official title goes – are due at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 27. This year, the Hollywood awards season ended later than usual, thanks to the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics. For the first time ever, the Oscars have allowed 10 films to be nominated for Best Picture – this will be a permanent fixture going forward. The 94th Academy Awards will be hosted by Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall – the first Oscar ceremony to be hosted by three women.
Earlier this year, 2022 Oscars Controversy arose after it was announced that the live broadcast would not feature the winners of eight categories, including Best Editing and Best Sound. Instead, these will be given in a pre-ceremony which will then be edited into a live broadcast. Steven Spielberg was among those who criticized This trick.
On top of that, the Academy partnered with Twitter to create two new categories — Oscar Fan Favorite Vote and Oscar Cheer Moment — all to boost ratings for an awards ceremony that’s getting less and less interest every year.
