UPDATING Oscars 2022 Winners: Jessica Chastain Will Smith, Ariana DeBose, Troy Kotsur, Jane Campion,”Encanto,” “Drive My Car,” 6 For “Dune”


Eight categories of the Academy Awards will be given during an untelevised hour between 7 and 8pm Eastern. We’ll try and post the winners as they’re announced…the main show begins at 8pm Eastern/5pm Western.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye wins Best Makeup & Hairstyling, which means Jessica Chastain is certain to win Best Actress.

Best documentary short goes to Queen of Basketball director Ben Proudfoot

Best live action short goes to… The Long Goodbye which makes Riz Ahmed  an Oscar winner!

The Oscar for Best Short (Animated) goes to “The Windshield Wiper.”

“Dune” wins Best Score for Hans Zimmer, and Best Editing by Joe Walker. And production design, too. Three Oscars so far.


UPDATING LIVE Venus and Serena are showing off their chests. Beyonce is performing from tennis courts in Compton. Her song is terrible, and lifts its first lines from “We Are Family.” Her segment was taped. It’s not even LIVE. And so we begin…

Good stuff from the trio of hosts Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall and Amy Schumer...Amy gets her own monologue and it’s very good.

BEST ACTRESS: Jessic Chastain, The Eyes of Tammy Faye

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Ariana DeBose “West Side Story: beautiful speech



Strange James Bond tribute. Judi Dench is here and no mention of her. No reunion of living Bonds. No Barbara Broccoli or mention of her dad. Weird.




COSTUME DESIGN: “Cruella” (I predicted this last year)

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: “Belfast” by Kenneth Branagh

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: “CODA” Sian Heder (CODA just basically won the Oscar)
