Oscars 2022: How to Watch, Nominees and Host

The Power of the Dog leads the pack with 12 nominations.


The Academy Awards are back again for a 94th ceremony celebrating the best movies and performances of the year.

This year, the recently controversial The Power of the Dog leads the pack with 12 nominations, closely followed by sci-fi epic Dune with 10. Oscars history has already been made, with Jane Campion becoming the first woman to be nominated twice for best director. She’ll make more history if she wins, becoming the only woman to win the category twice.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune into the 2022 Oscars on March 27.

When are the 2022 Oscars?

The Oscars are scheduled to be held on Sunday, March 27 from 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.

Instead of the usual three-hour slog, this year the Oscars have been slimmed down. Eight categories have been cut from the show (the awards will be presented before the telecast), including documentary short, film editing, makeup and hairstyling, original score, production design, animated short, live-action short and sound.

The ceremony will take place in the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland, a return to the usual stomping grounds after last year’s more intimate ceremony took place in Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

How do I watch the 2022 Oscars?

The Oscars will be televised on ABC. If you’ve cut the cord (a cheaper option with major perks), you can livestream ABC on YouTube TV, FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV and DirecTV.

You can also stream the show live via abc.com or the ABC app.
