Oscar 2022 ceremony begins; The Power of Dog wins ‘Best Directing’

Oscar 2022: The 94th Academy Awards are under way in Hollywood. Viewership for the Oscars has plunged in recent years. The Academy, which hosts the show, is trying to reduce the historically long run time by handing out the eight prizes before the broadcast.

Meanwhile, Sci-fi film “Dune” has picked up six Oscars, including best achievement in sound at the Academy Awards on Sunday as a number of statuettes were handed out before the main event.

Three female comedians — Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes — will preside over the ceremony.

From India’s side, Sushmit Ghosh and Rintu Thomas’s “Writing With Fire” has failed to win the Best Documentary category.
