The Power Of The Dog leads this year’s pack with a whopping 12 nominations

Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Garfield, Olivia Colman, Dame Judi Dench and Sir Kenneth Branagh are among the British stars who have landed Oscar nominations.

Cumberbatch received a nod for his role as a cruel rancher in Jane Campion’s western The Power Of The Dog, which leads this year’s pack with the most nominations.

Campion makes history as the first woman to be nominated for the best director Oscar twice - she was nominated for The Piano in 1994.

The Power Of The Dog, her return to the big screen following a foray into television, is nominated for 12 prizes, including best picture, while stars Kirsten Dunst, her partner Jesse Plemons and co-star Kodi Smit-McPee, are all recognised in supporting categories.

But who else is nominated for the biggest prizes in film?

Here is everything you need to know.

When are the Oscars?

For the second year in a row, the Academy Awards have been delayed due to the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Instead of their usual end of February slot, the awards will again fall a month later, on 27 March 2022.

The postponement also avoids potential scheduling clashes with the Super Bowl and Winter Olympics, both of which take place in mid-February.

The Awards will be held at their usual Dolby Theatre location in Los Angeles and will largely return to their pre-pandemic form

She picked up a supporting nod last year for her turn in The Father.

She will compete for the best actress gong against Kristen Stewart for her performance as Diana, Princess of Wales in Spencer, Jessica Chastain for The Eyes Of Tammy Faye, Penelope Cruz for Parallel Mothers and Nicole Kidman for Being The Ricardos.

Dame Judi and Ciaran Hinds have both landed nominations for their performances in Sir Kenneth’s autobiographical film Belfast.

The black-and-white film, inspired by the actor’s childhood in Northern Ireland, has also landed the filmmaker best director and best original screenplay nominations, while the film is in the running for best picture, with a total of seven nods.

Hinds, who was born in Belfast, is nominated in the best supporting actor category alongside The Power Of The Dog’s Smit-McPhee and Plemons, Troy Kotsur for Coda, and JK Simmons for Being The Ricardos.
