WHEN ARE THE OSCARS?

The Oscars will take place on Sunday, March 27 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 8 pm ET and will be broadcast live on ABC.

WHO WILL PRESENT THE OSCARS 2022?

Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes will take the stage to co-host the ceremony, which has been without an emcee for the past three years. Producer Will Packer said that each woman brings something different to the show.

WHO PRESENTS?

The show’s producers will continue to add names throughout the week, but for now, stars expected to hand out awards on Oscar night include Lady Gaga, Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Zoë Kravitz, Anthony Hopkins, Lily James, Daniel Kaluuya, Mila Kunis, John Leguizamo, Simu Liu, Rami Malek, Lupita Nyong’o, Rosie Perez, Chris Rock, Naomi Scott, Wesley Snipes, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Yuh-jung Youn, Ruth E Carter, Halle Bailey, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jamie Lee Curtis, Woody Harrelson, Shawn Mendes, Tyler Perry, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

WHAT WERE OSCAR’S MOST SURPRISING CHALLENGES?

There were plenty of surprises on the morning of the Oscar nominations.

Some exclusions that stood out include Denis Villeneuve, whose "dunes" had the second most nominations (10) behind "The Power of the Dog" (12), including best picture, but failed to earn a director nomination.

The best actress category was especially brutal this year, leaving out Lady Gaga for "House of Gucci"Jennifer Hudson for "Respect" and Caitriona Balfe for "Belfast" and Renate Reinsve by "the worst person in the world".

WHAT ARE THE PREDICTIONS FOR THE WINNERS ON OSCAR NIGHT?

“The Power of the Dog” is the presumptive favorite for best picture and best director for Jane Campion, but there is also a chance that “CODA” could take home best picture. Either way, it will be the first time a streaming service has won best picture. Other potential winners include Will Smith for Best Actor ("king richard"), Jessica Chastain for Best Actress ("The Eyes of Tammy Faye"), Troy Kotsur for Best Supporting Actor ("CODA") and Ariana DeBose for Best Supporting Actress ( "West Side Story").

WHAT ELSE CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE OSCARS?

Organizers have promised to keep the broadcast to three hours, and Packer (whose movies include crowd-pleasing flicks like “Girls Trip”) wants to make it as entertaining as possible while still honoring nominees and winners.

“The show will flow, like a movie, in the sense that there will be different themes and a different feel and different energy throughout the night,” Packer said in an interview with IndieWire. “It won’t feel, look or sound like a show for three hours. It’s taking you through the course of this cinematic journey.”

Best song nominees like Beyoncé, Van Morrison and Billie Eilish are also in talks to act.

IS THERE ANY CONTROVERSY THIS YEAR?

The Oscars are so high-profile that every year someone gets upset about something (especially when it comes to changes), but this year the biggest controversy is over the decision to present some awards before the live broadcast begins and edit them in the program later.

The eight awards are for short films (live action, animation and documentary), montage, score, hair and makeup, sound and production design. The decision has its supporters, but also an army of high-profile detractors, including Campion, Villeneuve, Steven Spielberg, Chastain, and Penelope Cruz.
