Hollywood awards Oscar: 2022 winners
The 95th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the Best Picture of 2022 was honored with the comedy All Everywhere All At Once. Its authors took home seven golden statuettes from 11 nominations.
The best directors were Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, who directed the film. In addition, they received an award for "Best Original Screenplay". Michelle Yeoh, who played the female lead in the film, became the first actress of Asian descent to receive the high award. Her partner, Ke Huy Quan, won an Oscar for Supporting Actor, and Jamie Lee Curtis, who played a tax inspector, won an Oscar for Supporting Actress. In addition, members of the Son Lux group took home the Oscar for best film score.
Brendan Fraser won Best Male Lead for his portrayal of a character with an eating disorder in the drama The Whale. The film adaptation of the German filmmakers of the same name of the novel All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque received the title of Best Foreign Film. Other winners in the 2022 Oscar race include Pinocchio Guillermo del Toro for Best Animated Feature, and director/screenwriter Sarah Polley's drama Women Speak for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Rihanna, who performed the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hit "Lift Me Up" on the Oscars stage, was left without a statuette, as she left the authors of the song "Naatu Naatu", written for the film "RRR: Revolution Roars Nearby".
The 95th Academy Awards received a few cosmetic changes this year. In particular, the red carpet was replaced with a champagne counterpart. True, this choice played a cruel joke with the organizers when rain fell in Los Angeles last Saturday, as a result of which traces of dirty soles formed on the track. In a hurry on the eve of the ceremony, sections of the coating had to be cut out and replaced with a new one.
In addition, due to the past rain, there were small drops in electricity, but these were also eliminated. Therefore, when the stars began to arrive at the Dolby Theater on Sunday evening, only the flashes of numerous photographers flickered, and the evening passed in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
