Oscar fever began with the nominees for the 94th Academy Awards officially announced today. This year’s slate of nominees is unlikely to be criticized as “Oscars to White,” given a diverse list of names that include Will Smith and Denzel Washington for Best Actor, Ryusuke Hamaguchi for Best Director and many more. Some are included. The Power of the Dog, directed by Jane Campion, garnered 12 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch, two Best Supporting Actors for Jesse Plemons and Cody Smit-McPhee, and a Best Supporting Actress nomination. is headed towards. For Kirsten Dunst. Dunne has 10 nominations while West Side Story and Belfast follow with seven; King Richard starring Will Smith has six nominations. Judi Dench, 87, is now the oldest nominee for Best Supporting Actress – nominated for her performance in Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast. Ariana Debos is up for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s version of West Side Story, a role that won Rita Moreno an Oscar in the 1961 film.

An Indian documentary on women Dalit journalists titled Writing with Fire has been nominated for Best Documentary Feature.

Oscar nominations were announced by Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross and actor-comedian Leslie Jordan; Some of the awards were announced by several guests including actress Phylicia Rashad, wrestler Titus O’Neill and even a group of firefighters. This year, the Oscars are scheduled to take place on March 27 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Last year, the ceremony took place in a Los Angeles train station with no hosts. Another highlight of this year’s Oscars is that it will be hosted for the first time since 2018, AFP news agency reported. In 2019, comedian Kevin Hart pulled out of hosting the Academy Awards after homophobic tweets that he recounted several years earlier. Since then, the Oscars have been hostless.

Meanwhile, Tamil film Koozhangal, directed by PS Vinothhara, was India’s official entry for the Academy Awards 2022. It failed to make the shortlist. Suriya’s Jai Bheem and Mohanlal’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Singham were officially included in the long list of films eligible for Oscars 2022.
