The long journey to the March 27 Academy Awards just got a little bit shorter with the announcement of 10 shortlists for the following categories: International Feature Film, Documentary, Original Score, Original Song, Makeup and Hairstyling, Visual Effects, Live-Action Short Film, Documentary Short Subject, and Animated Short Film, with Sound added to the mix this year. As in previous years, members of the Academy will select from these reduced lists of contenders in each category to pick the nominees for the 2022 Oscars. This year marked the fourth in a row the Academy released the full lineup of its shortlists on the same day.

Oscar nominations voting begins 9 a.m. PT on Thursday, January 27. Voting ends the next week at 5 p.m. PT on Tuesday, February 1, with nominations announced on the morning of Tuesday, February 8. At that point, we’ll see a reduction in these contenders and have the final five in each category. Final Oscar voting begins on Thursday, March 17 at 9 a.m. PT, and ends on Tuesday, March 22 at 5 p.m. PT. The 94th Annual Academy Awards will then take place on Sunday, March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
