Oscars 2022: Full Winners List


The most significant award of the night: the Best Picture win that the Producers Guild and Writers Guild Awards seemed to predict earlier in the week came to fruition, and CODA walked away with the little gold statue – overtaking former favorite The Power Of The Dog, Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast, and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story. Elsewhere, Sian Heder’s film also won Best Adapted Screenplay (it’s adapted from a 2014 French film), and Best Supporting Actor for Troy Kotsur – victorious in all three categories for which it was nominated. Though Jane Campion’s film lost Best Picture, she did win the Director award – the second time she’s been nominated in that category, following The Piano in 1994.

But the biggest talking point of the night, and the bit sure to go down in Oscars history, was an on-stage confrontation between Chris Rock and Will Smith. Before he introduced the Documentary nominees, Rock cracked a few gags which, for the most part, went down well. But upon making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, the mood soured significantly. After Pinkett Smith appeared disapproving of the joke, her husband strode on stage and appeared to strike Rock in the face, before repeatedly shouting from the audience: “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.”

Shortly after, Smith won Best Actor for his role in King Richard, giving an extended speech that seemed to reference the incident indirectly. “Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family,” he said, referencing his role in the film. “Making this film, I got to protect Aunjanue Ellis, who is one of the strongest, most delicate people I’ve ever met. I got to protect Saniyya and Demi, the two actresses who played Venus and Serena. I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people.”
