2022 Oscars: what was the order of categories?
The 94th Academy Awards ceremony had a far shorter live ceremony. Here's how the awards were announced.
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.
Dune won the most awards with six
In what order were the Oscars winners announced?
The Academy Awards are an institution that prides itself on tradition and legacy, and as such there are rarely any significant changes between years. However, in a bid to increase the amount of time for jokes an music, according to some reports, Animated Short Film, Documentary Short Subject, Film Editing, Live Action Short Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score, and Production Design and Sound were cut from the live ceremony. Instead, they were pre-filmed before the start of the live show.
A similar move was made in 2019 but was met with consternation and the plan reversed for the 2020 edition.
