The Oscars 2022


Lights! Camera! ACTION!


The 94th Academy Awards are almost here, and this year's event is shaping up to be fantastic! In a few days on Sunday March 27, the world's most popular movie stars (including Lady Gaga, Zoë Kravitz, Kevin Costner, and many others) will get together to honour the year's best films, and it'll all be live on Optik TV. Topping the bill, the nominees for Best Picture are possibly the most varied and exciting group of movies ever, and I can't wait to see which movie gets the nod. Here are the nominees:


- Belfast

- Coda

- Don't Look Up

- Drive My Car

- Dune

- King Richard

- Licorice Pizza

- Nightmare Alley

- The Power of The Dog

- West Side Story


Personally, I'd love for Dune or Nightmare Alley to pull out the win, as they're the two I enjoyed the most. I also really loved The Power of The Dog (the current favourite to win) so I'll be happy with any of these three. Dune and The Power of The Dog alone have a combined 22 nominations, so they'll be sure to at least take a few trophies home!


When the awards start at 5pm PT (or 3:30pm if you’re a red carpet aficionado), we want you and your household to have the best time possible. To that end, here are a few tips and tricks to help your at-home viewing party!



Bragging Rights

You know more about movies than everyone else in your home. We get it. No really, we do. How about proving it? Check out the full list of nominees and compete against everyone else to pick the winners. Best to keep it to the top four categories (Leading Actor, Leading Actress, Director, and Best Picture). See how you stack up!


Themed Snacks and Decorations

‘Red Velvet Rope’ Twizzlers? Champagne? Ice cream? Hey, it’s your party. Time to break out the best snacks and finger foods. The nearest dollar store will probably have some plastic trophies and streamers. Bonus points if the winner from our first tip above has to give a quick speech.


Dress to The Nines

Let’s be honest...we all love making things a bit more fun, right? It’s been a tough few years. We won’t judge. There’s no better occasion for tossing the sweatpants into the hamper and going to the hilt. Just be careful with that guacamole dip. Super hard to get those stains out.



The 94th Academy Awards will take place Sunday March 27th, and you can check your local listings to get prepared. You can also catch up on the nominees by checking out our very own Oscar hub on channel 112 where you can watch and rent the year’s big nominees via our Optik TV On Demand feature!
