Oscar Awards 2022: full list of winners by category
The 94th Academy Awards will be remembered by many for Will Smith punching Chris Rock, but there were also some very important awards handed out.
The 94th Academy Awards were hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night as the best movies and performances of the last year were rewarded.
With 12 nominations, The Power of the Dog led the way and was forecast to win big in some of the most prestigious categories, but ended up missing out to CODA on Best Picture. Let's look at who won what at the 2022 Oscars.
Will Smith won his first Academy Award, moments after a stunning incident in which he smacked presenter Chris Rock on stage for making a joke about his wife and twice shouted a vulgarity. Smith captured the best actor honor for his portrayal of Richard Williams, the determined father who raised tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams, in 'King Richard.'
Jessica Chastain won the Academy Award for best lead actress for her mascara-laden title role as the on-air preaching partner and wife of Christian televangelist Jim Bakker in 'The Eyes of Tammy Faye,' chronicling the couple's rise and fall.
Jane Campion received the Academy Award for best director for her gothic Western 'The Power of the Dog,' becoming the third woman in the Oscars' 94-year-old history to take home a prize in a field still dominated by men in Hollywood. The New Zealand native joins Kathryn Bigelow and Chloe Zhao as the only women to have received the honor for directing.
Troy Kotsur became the first deaf man to win an Oscar, taking the Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role as a fisherman and father in family drama 'CODA.' Kotsur, 53, has worked for over three decades in theater, television and film for both deaf and hearing audiences.
'CODA' wins best picture in a streaming first at the Oscars Heartwarming movie 'CODA,' about a deaf family with a hearing daughter, won the prestigious best picture prize, the first time a streaming service took home the film industry's biggest prize. 'CODA' was released by Apple TV+, which beat Netflix Inc's contender 'The Power of the Dog' and other entries from traditional Hollywood studios.
The Academy Awards weekend kicked off with an honorary Oscar for Samuel L. Jackson and awards for other movie industry veterans on Friday. Jackson was among the recipients of the annual Governors Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
Denzel Washington introduced Jackson at Friday's black-tie event by noting he has appeared in 152 films that have grossed more than $27 billion at movie box offices over five decades. As he accepted the award, Jackson thanked his family, business representatives, "and every person who ever bought a ticket to any of my movies."
Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his advocacy for justice and human rights. He currently serves as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Writer-director Elaine May and Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann also were honored.
