‘The Power of the Dog’ Dominates the Oscars Board at the Academy Awards 2022 Nominations

It was a big surprise when Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog dominated the Oscars board after the nominations for the 94th Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday, which included films in a wide range of genres.

The Power of the Dog, an intense Western starring Benedict Cumberbatch, led this year’s Oscar board with 12 nominations followed by Dune, which has 10. Belfast and West Side Story were also able to grab some nominations with both having seven each.

According to BCC, Olivia Colman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Garfield are among the UK nominees in the lead acting categories.

Fellow directing nominee Steven Spielberg also set a new record. As a producer of “West Side Story,” which earned a total of seven nominations, Spielberg has now produced 11 films nominated for best picture, a new record for the Oscars.

Denzel Washington extended the record he already holds as the most nominated black actor, earning his tenth Oscar nomination for his performance in “The Tragedy of Macbeth.”

Dame Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds are nominated for their supporting roles in Sir Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast. His autobiographical black-and-white film about a family in Northern Ireland during The Troubles is one of 10 films in the running for best picture.

Sir Kenneth becomes the first person to be nominated in seven different Oscar categories throughout his career. He already has director, actor, supporting actor, adapted screenplay and live-action short nominations, but can now add best original screenplay and best picture. He is yet to win, however.

With her nomination, New Zealand director Jane Campion becomes the first woman to have been nominated for best director twice, having been recognised for The Piano in 1993.

Her film, The Power of the Dog, is a slow and suspenseful western that also scored nominations for three of its supporting actors – Jesse Plemons, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Kirsten Dunst.
