The 2022 Oscars – or the 94th Academy Awards, as the official title goes – are set to take place on Sunday, March 27 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. For the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics this year, the Hollywood Awards season ends later than usual. For the first time, the Oscars allowed 10 films to be nominated for Best Picture – it would be a permanent fixture. The 94th Academy Awards will be hosted by Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall – the first Oscars hosted by three women.
Earlier this year, the 2022 Oscar controversy created that live broadcast would not present the winners of the eight categories, including Best Editing and Best Sound. Instead, they will be handed over to a pre-show that will then be edited live. Steven Spielberg was among the critics of the move.
On top of that, the academy has partnered with Twitter to create two new categories – the Oscar Fan Favorite Vote and the Oscars Cheer Moment – all to increase the ratings for an awards ceremony that is getting less and less interest each year.
