The 2022 Oscar nominees have been revealed – and Netflix's The Power of the Dog is the outright leader of the pack with 12 nominations.

Off the back of its sizable nomination display at the 2022 BAFTAs on February 3, the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring western drama is set to compete for multiple gongs at the Oscars, too. Jane Campion's latest flick finds itself up for awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Cumberbatch), Adapted Screenplay and Actor in a Supporting Role (for Kodi Smit-McPhee and Jesse Plemons).

Denis Villeneuve's Dune (10 nominations), Kenneth Branagh's Belfast (seven), and Stephen Spielberg's West Side Story (seven) also scored big at this year's Oscars nominations ceremony. The Will Smith-starring King Richard has also been nominated in six categories.

However, there's no place for A24's The Green Knight – the Dev Patel-starring medieval fantasy epic – among the nominees. Meanwhile, Sony Picture's big Oscars hope in Spider-Man: No Way Home picked up just one nomination in the Best Visual Effects category. Marvel Studios scooped two nominations in the VFX category, one being No Way Home and the other Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

In something of a shock, Encanto's smash hit "We Don't Talk About Bruno" hasn't been nominated for Best Original Sony at this year's Oscars. The track, which is the first Disney song to top the US's Billboard Hot 100 and UK's Official Music charts in 26 years, lost out to "Dos Oruguitas", even though Lin-Manuel Miranda penned the lyrics and score to both musical numbers.

The 94th Oscars ceremony, which will take place on March 27 at L.A's Dolby Theatre, also showcased the growing power of the world's biggest streamers. In total, 45% of the nominees were either a full streaming platform release, or a production that simultaneously launched in theaters and on a streaming service.

Read on for a full rundown of the 2022 Oscars nominations:
