The 2022 Oscars Recap

The 2022 Academy Awards ceremony was notable for its lengthy runtime, with host Jimmy Kimmel keeping the audience entertained with his jabs at the filmmakers nominated for Oscars. However, the night was filled with surprises and snubs that kept viewers on the edge of their seats. Da’Vine Joy Randolph kicked off the evening by winning Best Actress in a Supporting Role, while Hayao Miyazaki’s absence did not stop “The Boy and the Heron” from taking home the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Justine Triet’s “Anatomy of a Fall” and Cord Jefferson’s “American Fiction” also walked away with awards, showcasing the stiff competition among this year’s nominees.

One of the standout moments of the night was John Cena’s surprise nudity as he announced “Poor Things” as the winner of Best Costume Design. The speech given by writer/director Jonathan Glazer after winning Best International Feature for “The Zone of Interest” was powerful and thought-provoking, drawing parallels between his film and the ongoing conflict in Gaza. Robert Downey Jr.’s unexpected win for Best Supporting Actor in “Oppenheimer” added a touch of unpredictability to the evening, while the Godzilla Minus One creative team’s playful acceptance of the Best Visual Effects award with Godzilla action figures brought a light-hearted moment to the ceremony.

Throughout the night, it became clear that “Poor Things” was a favorite of the Academy, winning awards for Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, and Best Actress. Emma Stone’s second Oscar win for her role in the film solidified its place as a standout of the evening.
