The 2022 Academy Award nominations have been released overnight, with many Australian names among the coveted nods.

This year heralds the 94th run of the Academy Awards, which will honour films released in 2021, and the winners will be announced on 27 March, live from the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Nicole Kidman is up for Best Actress for her portrayal of Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos. She’s up against the equally fantastic talents of Jessica Chastain, Olivia Colman, Penélope Cruz – and Kristen Stewart in her first Oscar nom ever. Kidman recently won the Golden Globe in this category, which is usually a good indication of which way the Oscars will swing.
