The Oscars 2022


With the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic keeping people isolated for two years, celebrities and fans alike can agree that having this year’s Oscars in person was a huge excitement. The world was finally able to commemorate the incredible movies, actors, directors, and more for their work, as well as observe some stunning red carpet fashion. Hosted by Regina Hall, Wanda Sykes, and Amy Schumer, the Oscars 2022 was full of laughs, tears, and memorable moments.
To start off the night, actors Vanessa Hudgens and Terrence J, along with fashion designer Brandon Maxwell talked to the stars of the night on the red carpet. Many celebrities rocked the runway wearing anything and everything from Louis Vuitton, to Balenciaga, to Valentino. Andrew Garfield, supporting actor nominee for Tik Tik Boom…! rocked a Saint Laurent burgundy velvet blazer, black silky shirt, and black pants. The actor could not have chosen a better look for this important night. Kirsten Dunst, Ariana Debose, and Simu Liu stood out in one of the trendiest and boldest colors of the night: red. Jessica Chastain, the winner of best actress for her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, looked stunning in a custom Gucci gown with a sequent gold bust draping down into a lilac skirt.
“I loved Zendaya’s unique pairing of classy on the bottom and casual on the top, it was really cool and Zendaya always has the best looks”, said Sydney Bianco ’23.
Zendaya looked stunning in a Valentino silk cropped blouse paired with a sequin sparkly maxi skirt. The actress paid homage to Sharon Stone’s 1998 Oscars unique pairing of a masculine white shirt tucked into a satin silver skirt.
Making history as the first openly queer Afro-Latina woman to win an Oscar, star of West Side Story Ariana Debose had a memorable moment when winning best supporting actress, her first Oscar nomination and win. The actress revived the role of Anita, a fierce Puerto Rican woman making her mark in America, after the original actress Rita Moreno in 1961. Moreno won best supporting actress for Anita back in 1962, making this win even more special for both Debose and Moreno. Troy Kotsur, actor of CODA, a film portraying the story of a 17 year old hearing child learning how to live with her deaf parents, made history as the first deaf male and second deaf actor to win an Oscar, following his CODA costar Marlee Matlin who won the best actress award back in 1987. In Kotsur’s speech, he shouted out the deaf community, his fellow CODA family, and the disabled community.
The musical performances lit up the night with Billie Eilish singing “No Time To Die”, Latin American artist Sabastían Yatra singing “Dos Oruguitas”, and Meg the Stallion with her memorable performance of a “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” remix.
The 2022 Oscars 2 will definitely be remembered and loved for years to come, and was a great night for many stars.
