The Oscar-nominated movies to see before the 2022 Academy Awards
From Will Smith in the Williams sisters’ biopic, to Meryl Streep as an incompetent POTUS, here are our picks for the best Oscar-nominated movies and stars.
The Academy Award ceremonies of the last few years have certainly been eventful, from the wrong film being announced as Best Picture (sorry, La La Land) to the event almost getting cancelled in the wake of COVID-19.
While the pandemic has meant more nominated films streaming into our homes, avid moviegoers can still watch the films up for contention on both the big and small screen before the award ceremony this March 27 (airing in Australia on March 28).
This year, the event colloquially known as 'The 'Oscars' is bringing back the glitz and glamour to the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center, with a myriad of stars, performers, and deserving winners to show that the movies are back in business.
So, whether you’re in it to see if Australia’s Nicole Kidman is going to bring home her second Best Actress statue for Being The Ricardos, if the songs in Encanto are truly as catchy as they say, if you're wondering why your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman is at the Oscars, or you just want to look at the fabulous costumes in Cruella and West Side Story, there’s never been a better time to watch a film in the name of ‘research’ before the big day.
So pop the corn, bite into the choc-tops and get ready to play Armchair Critic with our top Oscar-nominated movies to see ahead of the movie industry’s answer to the Grand Final – the 94th Annual Academy Awards.
