Oscar nominations revealed, with 10 movies to be announced as 2022 best picture nominees | FULL LIST

LOS ANGELES — Nominations for the 94th Oscars were announced, and this year, a major change takes effect for the coveted best picture category.

Actors Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross revealed nominations in all 23 Academy Award categories in a live presentation.

2022’s big change: There will be 10 movies announced as best picture nominees. For the past decade, it’s been a sliding range of five to 10 nominees. Most years had eight or nine.

This year’s best picture nominees are: “Belfast,” “CODA,” “Don’t Look Up,” “Drive My Car,” “Dune,” “King Richard,” “Licorice Pizza,” “Nightmare Alley,” “The Power of the Dog” and “West Side Story.”

The 94th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 27, and will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. The ceremony returns to the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and will have a host at the helm for the first time since 2018.
