Who won the Oscars last year?

It’s a question even the most fastidious awards watcher might have trouble answering off the top of their head: Who won the Oscars last year? While Best Picture winners are often impossible to forget, keeping track of who took home Academy Awards in the below-the-line categories often requires a little more work. Here’s who won at the ceremony last year — and a preview of the 2023 Oscars as well.

Who won the Oscars last year?

The 94th Oscars took place on March 27, 2022, a relative return to normal after the 2021 ceremony was directly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. While the list of 2022 Oscar winners (seen below) represents the academy’s take on the best of 2021 in film, the ceremony won’t be remembered for those who took home Academy Awards. Instead, it will live in infamy as the show when Will Smith, who won Best Actor for “King Richard,” went up on stage and slapped Chris Rock after Rock told a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith, Will Smith’s longtime spouse. In the aftermath of the shocking moment, Smith resigned from the academy and was later barred from attending academy events for a period of 10 years. With that aside, here is who won the Oscars last year.
