The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Tuesday revealed its shortlist across 10 categories — Documentary Feature, Documentary Short, International Feature, Live Action Short, Animated Short, Makeup and Hairstyling, Music Score, Original Song, Sound, and Visual Effects. 

Many blockbuster releases of this year have made it to multiple categories like Spider-Man: No Way Home (2), Dune (4), No Time to Die (5), and The Matrix Resurrections (2). 

Fifteen international features have made the cut including A Hero (Iran), Hand of God (Italy), Drive My Car (Japan) and Flea (Denmark). The film that was surprisingly snubbed from the shortlist was the much-talked-about body horror Palme d'Or winner Titane (France). 

The final nominations will be unveiled on February 8 after voting which will take place between January 27 to February 1. The Oscars 2022 are going to be held on March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
