94th Oscars Nominations Complete List: ‘The Power Of The Dog’, ‘Dune’, ‘Belfast’, ‘West Side Story’ Lead Noms

The biggest night in film awards just dropped an haute list of potential bests and I can already hear the discussions erupting around it. Yes, folks, the 94th Oscars Nominations Show, presented by Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan has revealed the highly anticipated nominations for the 94th Academy Awards. But not before Leslie changed his costume to be more appropriate for the presentation. The show also had a few new elements, where movie fans were made a part of the presentation, as they announced some of the categories and even discussed their own favourite nominations. This is going to be one tough decision to make because the films, actors and filmmakers nominated for Oscars 2022 are incredible—The Power Of The Dog, Dune, The Worst Person In The World, The Lost Daughter, Belfast, West Side Story, Liquorice Pizza, Don’t Look Up and more.

As of now, The Power Of The Dog, directed by Jane Campion, leads the nominations list with 12 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, both Best Supporting Actor categories and Best Actor. Following close is Dune, directed by Denis Villenueve, which has 10 nominations, including Best Picture, and quite a few technical ones like Cinematography, Sound and Editing. And finally, we have Belfast, directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh, and West Side Story, the musical by Steven Spielberg, that have bagged seven nominations each. Could this be the year that Jane Campion wins her second Best Director Oscar and gives us a female director Academy Award win for the second time in a row?

The Power of the Dog

India had its hopes staked on the Suriya starter Jai Bhim, which had a fighting chance in the Best Picture (International) category. In fact, a tweet that went viral this morning made Indian Twitter rather hopeful that the Tamil film could be announced in the nominations list. When the presentation was live, fans of Jai Bhim were all over the live chat! Alas, the film has not made it to the Oscar 2022 nominations.
