The Oscar Nominations Mostly Got it Right


The nominations for the 94th Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday and as usual, social and entertainment media has something to say about it, with call-outs for big omissions and kudos for deserving nods.

Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog leads the pack with 12 nominations, including director Campion, making her the first woman to be recognized in the best director category more than once. Steven Spielberg is now an 11 time producer nominee, thanks to West Side Story, which got seven nods total. Dune got 10 noms, including best picture, while Belfast also earned seven and King Richard scored six.

With some exceptions, pretty much all of LA Weekly and Village Voice critics’ favorite films (as touted in our year end tallies HERE) were recognized. Despite some snubs and unexpected surprises, we’d say the nominations this year are pretty spot on, with everyone recognized deserving of acclaim.

If there’s one thing we have problems with, it’s the documentary category, which left out several powerful 2021 chronicles. Summer of Soul was a no-brainer, but so many great films were not recognized. (Read our list of favorites HERE).
