The Academy Awards are once again dominated by streamers, at least in the nominations

After a weirdly short awards season, the nominations for the 2022 Oscars have finally arrived. These nominations arrive just 11 months after last year’s, in an attempt to help bring the awards window back to its traditional window, rather than the extended window the Academy used last year.

This year’s Academy Awards nominees were announced on Tuesday morning by Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross on a livestream from the Academy. This year’s slate is the first to return to guaranteed 10 best picture nominees, rather than the flexible amount that the past few years have had.

As for the actual award ceremony, we’ll have to wait quite a while. The 94th Academy Awards won’t be held until March 27. As of right now, we don’t know for sure how the ceremony will be held — though it will certainly be in person — and we don’t know who the host (or hosts) will be.

Until then, here are the 2022 Academy Award nominees:
