The 94th Academy Awards ceremony took place on Sunday April 27 with a condensed live show from Los Angeles. Compared to last year's pared-back show, more than 2,500 people were in attendance, as the relaxing of covids-19 rules have made it much easier and safer to be in large groups.

Jane Campion's 12 nominations for Power of the Dog was up against science-fiction epic Dune for the top prize, which scored 10 nominations. Competing against them was Belfast, about a family living amid conflict in late 1960s Northern Ireland, although the best picture went to deaf community film CODA.
