Oscars 2022: Wesley Snipes, Rosie Perez & More Share Their Acting Inspirations



The 94th Academy Awards was definitely one for the books.

The Oscars came back swinging (pun intended) after last year’s scaled-down ceremony amid the COVID-19 pandemic … and was full of firsts.

Will Packer and Shayla Cowan became the first African American producing team for Hollywood’s biggest night. Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes took the stage as the first female hosting trio – coming off three years of ceremonies that had no host.

Ariana DeBose became the first openly queer Afro-Latina to win an acting Oscar for her role as Anita in “West Side Story,” while Troy Kostur became the first hearing impaired actor to win Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Coda.”
