Jane Campion’s revisionist western, “The Power of the Dog,” topped the Oscars nomination list with 12 nods, but the director of the sci-fi film “Dune,” which followed with 10 noms, wasn’t quite as lucky as the Kiwi director. ‘Dune’ director Denis Villeneuve did not make the nomination for Best Director.

Campion made history by becoming the first woman to be nominated twice for Best Director, but she’s up against the formidable Steven Spielberg, who took home his eighth nomination for ‘West Side Story’, and Kenneth Branagh (‘Belfast’), who became the first artist in Oscars history to set a lifetime record with seven nominations in seven different categories.

Branagh, “Variety” notes, was nominated for directing, producing and writing the original screenplay of his semi-autobiographical coming-of-age film. He had previously earned Oscar nominations for Best Actor and Best Director for “Henry V,” Best Live-Action Short Film for “Swan Song,” Best Supporting Actor for “My Week With Marilyn,” and Best Adapted Screenplay for “Hamlet.”

Spielberg, who earned his eighth nomination, is now, according to “Variety,” next to Billy Wilder and behind Martin Scorsese’s nine and William Wyler’s 12 nods (including those for classics like “Roman Holiday” and “Ben-Hur”) in the Best category. Director.

Villeneuve, meanwhile, wasn’t the only one to be snubbed. Lady Gaga, who received critical acclaim for what “Variety” describes as her “scene-stealing work” in “House of Gucci,” was not nominated for Best Actress, although the film’s makeup and haircut were on the list.

Ironically, Lady Gaga had landed in the lead actress category at the Critics Choice Awards, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and BAFTA Film Awards—the four predecessors to the Oscar nominations. She was also named Best Actress by the New York Film Critics Circle.

The Royal Negation also took home the sixth highest grossing film of all time — “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” It may have raised $1.7 billion at the worldwide box office, but it received only one nomination – Best Visual Effects, a department where it faces stiff competition from another big win, “No Time to Die” (the 25th James Bond movie), and the Asian superhero movie ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’.

“CODA” star Troy Kotsur became only the second deaf actor to be nominated for playing a deaf character, following in the footsteps of his co-star, Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar for her lead role in “Children of a Lesser God.” ‘ .

“As a boon to home tranquility,” as Variety puts it, Javier Bardem (“Being the Ricardos”) and Penelope Cruz (“Parallel Mother”) became the sixth married couple to be nominated for acting the same year.

Romantic partners Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons, who also starred in “The Power of the Dog,” were also nominated in supporting acting categories.
