After a muted and delayed Academy Awards in 2021, the Oscars returned to something close to full strength in 2022: Back at their old home at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, back to a lavish red carpet, back to a ceremony full of celebrity presenters and hosts, including Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes.

This year’s race was one of the most turbulent and least predictable in recent memory — and the show was equally turbulent and equally predictable. (In case you missed it, Will Smith smacked Chris Rock on stage live in the middle of the show, just a few minutes before he won the Oscar for Best Actor.) The big winner of the night was Coda, which won the Best Picture award, the Best Adapted Screenplay Award, and Best Supporting Actor.

The most awards of the night belonged to Dune, which won six technical categories including Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Sound. Jane Campion won Best Director for her acclaimed Western The Power of the Dog, while Jessica Chastain won the Best Actress prize in what was about as close to an upset as the night had.
