Netflix’s “The Power of the Dog” led the nominations for the 94th Academy Awards with 12 nominations, including Best Picture.

LOS ANGELES — For the first time in two years, the Oscars are rolling out the red carpet at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles for what the film academy hopes will be a return to Oscar normalcy.

The telecast of the 94th Academy Awards will begin, as usual, at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC. However, eight of the awards will be featured off-air and edited into the show.

It’s one of many changes around this year’s ceremony. After two years of pandemic — and a socially distanced 2021 edition with record scores – the Oscars will try to reclaim their place in pop culture with a revamped TV show that should see a streaming service win best picture for the first time.
