Oscars Ceremony 2022

Oscars Ceremony 2022: The Oscars are here. After years of dipping ratings, the 2022 Oscars are hoping to kickstart momentum for the awards ceremony again. But already the event is mired in controversy: West Side Story star Rachel Zegler wasn’t even invited to the proceedings (that was quickly rectified, surprising no one).


Get ready. It’s nearly time to watch the Oscars 2022 live stream. This year the Oscars has a trio of first-time hosts — Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes. And Hollywood is back in the building for an awards show that will be more “normal” than the last couple of years.

WIRED’s extensive coverage of the nominated films includes a thoughtful review of Dune by senior editor Angela Watercutter, analysis of how Encanto was optimized for TikTok from senior editor Jason Kehe, and an article with climate scientists’ reactions to the doomsday movie Don’t Look Up by senior writer Amit Katwala.

Make sure to have plenty of snacks on hand, a few drinks in the fridge, and a cozy blanket nearby, if you’re enjoying the Oscars from the comfort of your living room couch. Whether or not you have access to cable, we put together a list of the best ways to watch the 2022 Oscars ceremony live, and how to stream the awards show after it airs.

How to Watch the Oscars
The 2022 Oscars will be streamed live from Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 27 at 8 pm Eastern on ABC. The 94th Academy Awards will not have one, specific host for acerbic Twitter users to roast–Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall will jointly lead the ceremony.

If you already have a cable subscription that includes ABC, you can watch the 2022 Oscar awards on your TV, on, or through the ABC app on iPhone and Android smartphones.

Viewers who often watch shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX may want to consider investing around $50 in a TV antenna that receives over-the-air channels. Depending on the local availability, you may be able to stream the awards ceremony live on your ABC affiliate without any subscription needed.

Another solid choice for watching the live presentation of the 94th Academy Awards without cable is to use a live TV subscription service like YouTube TV, FuboTV, or Hulu + Live TV. All three options provide at least a one-week, free trial for new users. The standard monthly rate for YouTube TV is $65 for over 85 channels, and new members currently get three introductory months for $55 each. FuboTV has more than 100 channels for $70 a month.

I would recommend Hulu + Live TV for anyone who watches a decent amount of on-demand entertainment alongside their live TV consumption. The service has around 75 channels. What Hulu + Live TV lacks in obscure channels you’ll likely never watch, it makes up for with access to Disney+, ESPN+, and ad-supported Hulu for $70 a month. For $6 more a month, the bundle can be upgraded to Hulu without ads.

A supplemental American Sign Language (ASL) live feed for the 94th Academy Awards will be provided on the Oscars YouTube channel.

Viewers who are willing to wait one day can stream the complete ceremony on-demand with a subscription to Hulu.

What Movies Are Nominated?
Directed by Jane Campion and released on Netflix, The Power of the Dog has the most potential opportunities for wins at the 94th Academy Awards, securing 12 nominations in total. The Power of the Dog nominations include Best Picture, Directing, and Actor in a Leading Role for Benedict Cumberbatch. With 10 nods, the Dune adaptation is the second most nominated film at this year’s awards. Steven Spielberg’s rendition of the classic musical West Side Story and Kenneth Branagh’s depiction of Belfast during the Northern Ireland conflict both earned seven Oscar nominations.

Considering watching more of the top-notch films at home? WIRED’s round up of where to find the nominated movies on streaming services will point you in the right direction. Drive My Car, Dune, King Richard, Nightmare Alley, and West Side Story are all part of the HBO Max catalog. The bevy of Oscar-nominated movies streaming on Netflix includes Don’t Look Up, The Lost Daughter, and The Power of the Dog. The options available on Apple TV+ are more limited, but the service has two Best Picture nominees: CODA and The Tragedy of Macbeth.

Sci-fi fans who want to dive deep into the world of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel Dune should check out WIRED’s analysis of its stillsuit invention, warfare predictions, and influence on Burning Man as well as our Q&As with Frank’s son, Brian Herbert, and movie director Denis Villeneuve.
