2022 Oscar Winners: The Complete List

We never thought this day would come. The 94th Academy Awards are finally here, powering through a pandemic and the longest awards season since…last awards season. What that’s meant for us, the movie fans, is a bounty of nominees that’ve had their merits litigated over and over and over again during the extended eligibility period. You’re probably sick of the debate. The back-and-forth. The underdog favorites that get late heel turns; the behind-the-scenes arcs echoing on-screen narratives. Well, it’s all been leading up to tonight—and you’re invited to join us as the winners roll out.

It’s the fourth year in a row without a single host overseeing things—long past establishing it as a terrible trend, leaving us with the trifecta of Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes—which leaves the announcement tasks up to a variety of former winners, current nominees and mercenary celebs hired to attract an audience that couldn’t care less about the Oscars that include:

Lady Gaga, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, DJ Khaled, Vanessa Hudgens, Terrence J, Brandon Maxwell, Tony Hawk, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Shawn Mendes, Zoë Kravitz, Daniel Kaluuya, Anthony Hopkins and Youn Yuh-jung.

And then, of course, the Academy has decided to cut a slew of awards from the live broadcast because, ironically, they seem to have higher priorities than movies.

The 94th Academy Awards air live on ABC starting at 8 PM ET, leaving you a little while to look over our preview of the evening, including the Movies team’s predictions for who will win, arguments for who should win and some last-minute quibbles about the snubs that should’ve topped them all. We’ve also assembled a handy streaming guide for you cinephile completionists angling to squeeze in one last nominated film (or two, or more, if we’re talking shorts) during the ceremony. Listen, it gets long and dull—we get it.

Watch this space to follow along with tonight’s big winners in real time, starting alongside the ceremony at 8 PM and updating live throughout the night. In the meantime, you can brush up on the nominees for each category below. Winners will be denoted and offset in bold as they are announced.
