The Oscars are upon us! With the ceremony just around the corner on March 27, you, me, and the Academy are frantically playing catch up on this year’s nominees. Tennis parents, Shakespearean murderers, Irish pops and grans, gay cowboys, and The Ricardos are all in the mix. And while this year will potentially be a return to form after last year’s scaled-back ceremony, there could still be plenty of firsts. For starters, there are 10 Best Picture contenders for the first time in a while, and eight categories being punted to the commercial breaks. I took a look at this year’s nominees and pulled out 23 Oscar firsts, records, or groundbreaking accomplishments that could or will happen at the 2022 ceremony. So tune in on Sunday March 27 at 8 p.m. EST to watch history unfold before your eyes.
