Promotional Graphic

The nominations for the 94th Oscars were announced today, February 8, 2022, by actor-comedian Leslie Jordan and actor-producer Tracee Ellis Ross. It was live-streamed on Oscar.com and YouTube and broadcast on ABC during the Good Morning America television show.

In addition to Jordan and Ross and their sometimes stilted attempts at live comedy, this year's theme of "Movie Lovers Unite" was continued by featuring New York City firefighters, hospital workers in Troy, Michigan, an acting student from Howard University in Washington, D.C., a "film enthusiast" that commented on the nominees for supporting actress, and an eighth-grade student at a school in Florida.

The Oscars award ceremony will be held on Sunday, March 27, 2022, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on ABC starting at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

Some of these movies are playing in theaters, while some have already made it to home video. Being nominated usually causes some of them to make a return appearance. Head over to the Academy Award® Winners and Nominees page to see where and when they're playing!
