Oscars Specials 2022: The best directors who’ve never won an Oscar

There is perhaps no award show that is as widely celebrated by film lovers everywhere as the Oscars. This year marks the 94th Academy Awards which will air this weekend.

The event will also officially be wrapping up at the end of the 2021-22 film awards circuit.

As it has in previous years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the Oscars, which will air worldwide live on ABC starting at 5 p.m. PT on Sunday.

And although the award show was without a host for the last three years, two of which were due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the Oscars have brought in three hosts to emcee the night. Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall will be doing the honors.

This year has already been met with a bit of drama before it even began. You might recall the recent outrage that occurred online when people found out that 'West Side Story’ star Rachel Zegler was not invited to the Oscars, despite being the lead of the multi-nominated film. Luckily, she the story had a happy ending and she will be not only attending but presenting as well.

To get us through what's sure to be a night full of similar mishaps, we've come up with a drinking game that you can play the night of—solo or alone.
