Ratings for awards shows have been in steady decline. Not just the Oscars, but the Emmys, Grammys, Critics Choice Awards… all of the annual celebrations of artistic accomplishment are slipping in stature as audiences seek different distractions. Some of this might be tied to the movies that are nominated, with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honoring distinguished feature films that precious few have seen. Is this year any different? 

The nominations for Oscars 2022 were announced by Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross, establishing the field of contenders that will compete for Academy gold when the ceremony is held on Sunday, March 27. Those sounds you hear are the revving engines of publicity campaigns preparing to shift into the next gear, and champion the movies, performers, and craftspeople recognized by the Academy this year. Here’s the complete list of 2022 Academy Award nominations:
