Three hosts, plenty of history-making awards and one shocking slap: so goes the story of the undeniably chaotic 94th annual Academy Awards. Largely returning to its pre-pandemic form at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles after last year’s sized-down show, the 2022 ceremony aired on Sunday night and brought a protracted and strange award season to a messy finish. In an attempt to attract more eyeballs to the festivities after record-low ratings, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences instituted a variety of controversial changes for this year’s telecast ― adding two fan-voted races and demoting eight below-the-line and short film categories to a preshow presentation — which drew significant ire within the industry. But it was the unexpected moments that will surely cause all the conversation, most notably Will Smith smacking presenter Chris Rock on stage over a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith moments before winning the Best Actor trophy.

In between the jokes, there were also several mentions of current global events including the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine with the ceremony holding a 30-second moment of silence in a show of support. Toward the end of the ceremony, Jessica Chastain also spotlighted LGBTQ youth in her Best Actress acceptance speech, encouraging all those watching at home to “know that you’re unconditionally loved for the uniqueness that is you.”



Here is the Full List of Oscar 2022 Winners and Nominees:


Best Picture


CODA, the uplifting dramedy about a hearing girl in a deaf family who takes up singing, won the Oscar for Best Picture—after also taking the awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. The film premiered at the Sundance film festival, where Apple paid a record-breaking $25 million for it. Beast critic Kevin Fallon called it a “remarkable” film about “how the arts can help center a person as they face their hardest battles in life, how a passion for them can help a person see themselves for who they really are, help heal them, and carry them toward a brighter future.”
