Over the course of three socially distanced hours, we saw Chloé Zhao make history as the first woman of colour to win the Best Director prize, an absent Anthony Hopkins be named Best Actor over the undisputed favourite, Chadwick Boseman. What could the 2022 Oscars have in store for us? We have found out everything you need to know ahead of the biggest night in film.

What Day Will The 2022 Oscars Be?

The 94th Academy Awards are set to be held on March 27th, starting at 5 PM Pacific Time.

Where Will They Be Holding The 2022 Oscars?

The Oscars will return to their home since 2002, the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center. Last year they were held at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to better accommodate COVID-19 restrictions.

Who Will Be Performing?

There is still no confirmation whether performances will be live or pre-recorded but among the possibilities of who could be hitting the stage are Best Original Song nominees Beyoncé (for “Be Alive” from King Richard), Billie Eilish (for “No Time To Die”), Lin-Manuel Miranda (for “Dos Oruguitas” from Encanto), Van Morrison (for “Down to Joy” from Belfast), and Diane Warren (for “Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days).

Oscar 2022 Hosts

Who Is Hosting?

For the past three years the Oscars have been host-less but this year they have changed up the game, in hopes of attracting a broader audience. Amy Schumer, Regina Hall, and Wanda Sykes were all chosen as this year’s hosts.
