2022 Oscars: Here Are All the Films Eligible for Oscars at the 94th Academy Awards, Jan 20, 2022.

Los Angeles, Calif. – This year’s Oscars race just got a little tighter. Ahead of the nominations announcement on Feb. 8, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced a not-so-shortlist of all the films in contention for Oscars at the 94th Academy Awards.

Two hundred seventy-six (276!) movies have met the Academy’s eligibility requirements, which require a 7-day qualifying run in at least one of six U.S. metropolitan areas. Rule provisions this year allow for drive-in theaters, as well as stipulations for films intended for a theatrical release but forced to pivot to streaming.
