Something different about the Oscars this year is that a new rule is taking place which will see a full 10 nominations for the Best Picture category. Previously, the rule was a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 nominations. This new rule makes it possible for box office big grosser Spiderman: No Way Home to stand a chance at a nomination.

Last year, Eternals director Chloe Zhao won the best picture with her film Nomandland. Due to covid last year, studios had smaller nominations than the previous years which saw Netflix amass a whopping 35 nominations.

Below is a list of films, actors, directors, and crew nominated for an Oscar.
