Live updates on 2022 Oscars presentation order

The Academy Awards will open at 8 p.m., but with pre-taped speeches for the “smaller” categories, the order with which the awards are announced could change. We track it here.

The 2022 Academy Awards are finally here as ‘Hollywood’s Biggest Night’ rolls on. The Oscars don’t usually announce the order of the presentations, but we will be updating this article whenever awards are announced!

Generally, Best Picture goes last, although that was not the case last year. Best Actor was the final award of the evening, likely due to the expectation that Chadwick Boseman was expected by most to win. Anthony Hopkins won a shocker, and so we will likely see Best Picture back in the final spot. Best Actor and Best Actress will likely be in the final three, with Best Director mixed in there as well.

Unlike other years, they have pre-taped speeches for a number of categories including Documentary Short, Original Score and Animated Short. For reference, below is the order that they used for the 2021 Academy Awards.
