Dune and The Power of the Dog lead the nominations

The Academy of Oscars has just unveiled the list of nominations for the next ceremony, next March.

On March 27, all of Hollywood will come together to celebrate the 7th art on the occasion of the 94th Academy Awards. An event that should crown the best cinema of the year 2021. This Tuesday, February 8, the Academy shared the list of nominees in all categories. Without surprise The Power of the Dog and Dunes leave big winners of this 2022 edition.

New Zealander Jane Campion makes history by becoming the first time to earn two Best Director Oscar nominations. 28 years after The Piano Lesson, she is giving herself another chance to hit the jackpot. In 1994 it was Schindler’s List who had obtained the precious reward.

On the side of the best film of the year, we find Belfast, Coda, Don’t Look Up and Drive My Car. Dune is also in the race, just like The Williams Method and Licorice Pizza. Despite a box office failure, Nightmare Alley seems to have convinced the Academy.

In front of the camera, three platforms compete for the titles of best actor and actress of the year. Thus, Amazon offers itself two nominations for the performances of Javier Bardem and Nicole Kidman in Being the Ricardos. JK Simmons is also in the running for Best Supporting Actor.
