Will there be a host for the 2022 Oscars?

After a slew of hostless Oscars dating back to 2018, this year’s Academy Awards will see not one, not two, but three hosts: Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, and Regina Hall. This marks the first time since 2011 that the Oscars will have multiple hosts, as well as the first time ever that three women have hosted the star-studded event.

What’s different about the 94th Academy Awards?

Traditionally, the Oscars are punctuated by musical performances from featured artists, although the jury’s still out on whether this year will involve live or pre-recorded performances. And in a controversial move, rather than broadcasting all 23 categories live this year, the 94th Academy Awards will feature a shortened ceremony with the following 8 categories presented off-air: Documentary Short, Film Editing, Hair and Makeup, Original Score, Production Design, Animated Short, Live Action Short, and Sound.

Who are the 2022 Oscar nominees?

Netflix’s The Power of the Dog leads with a dozen nominations—it’s the first film directed by a woman to receive more than 10 nominations. In fact director Jane Campion herself is making Oscar history as the first woman to receive two nominations for Best Director. Sci-fi epic Dune follows closely behind with an impressive 10 nods, while Belfast and West Side Story clock in at 7 nominations each.

Here’s the full list, many of which you can watch on Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Disney+. Which are your picks this year?

  1. Can you provide information on how to stream Formula 1 when the season starts. SKY in the UK provides the show. I would like to watch the SKY feed in Canada if possible.
    Thanks
