    As the last few years have shown us, you can always count on awards shows to persevere, even in the most trying of times. The 2022 Oscars nominations, if nothing else, represent the inspiring endurance of this annual tradition, while also highlighting some of the year’s most exciting creative achievements in film.

    Leading the pack in terms of nominations was The Power of the Dog with 12, with four acting nominations, Jane Campion for her direction, and its stellar cinematography by Ari Wegner. Licorice Pizza scored three nominations, for directing, original screenplay, and best picture — though no acting recognition for its young cast. Meanwhile, Being the Ricardos didn’t break into best picture but did manage to collect three acting nominations for Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem, and J.K. Simmons.

    West Side Story scored seven nominations, including best picture, directing for Steven Spielberg, and supporting actress for Ariana Debose. Meanwhile, Dune was recognized in nearly every category it was eligible for (except for acting), with 10 nominations across categories including editing, makeup and hairstyling, production design, and more.

    Congrats are also due to Flee, the animated documentary from Denmark that made some history by scoring nominations for international feature film, animated film, and documentary feature. Also performing well were two other international feature film nominees: Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car, nominated for directing, adapted screenplay, and best picture, as well as The Worst Person in the World, which was also nominated for Eskil Vogt and Joachim Trier’s original screenplay.
