The 2022 Oscars — or the 94th Academy Awards, as the official title goes — is set to take place on Sunday, March 27 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. This year, the Hollywood Awards season is ending later than usual, thanks to the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics. For the first time, the Oscars allowed 10 films to be nominated for Best Picture – this will be a regular feature going forward. The 94th Academy Awards will be hosted by Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall – making it the first Oscar ceremony to be hosted by three women.

Earlier this year, the 2022 Oscars sparked controversy after announcing that the live broadcast would not showcase the winners of eight categories, including Best Editing and Best Sound. Instead, these would be handed over in a pre-ceremony that would then be fitted into the live broadcast. Steven Spielberg was among those who criticized this move.

In addition, the Academy teamed up with Twitter to create two new categories — Oscars Fan Favorite Vote and Oscars Cheer Moment — all in an effort to boost ratings for an awards show that is getting less and less attention each year.
