Oscars 2022: our playlist with the most beautiful songs

Giulia Guido

There is less than a month to the Oscars 2022, the most anticipated night of the year by actors, directors, producers and “craftsmen” of the seventh art. After last year’s ceremony for a select few, the one on March 27th will return as usual to the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with a full house.
The enthusiasm linked to a return to normality has been swept away for a few days by a statement made by the Academy itself, which a few weeks ago announced that following the decision to reduce the duration of the evening to three hours, some categories would have received the award, but not live. In particular, the 8 categories excluded would have been: best editing, best makeup and hairstyling, best original soundtrack, best sound, best set design, best animated short, best live-action short and best documentary short. 

After several controversies and criticisms also raised by directors and producers of the films competing for the statuette, a few days ago the Academy has retracted declaring that these categories will also be awarded live, but that the airing will continue not to exceed three hours. Now, it’s certainly not up to us to understand how they will assign 23 Oscars in just 180 minutes and also include the monologues of the three presenters Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes.

What we can do is shift our attention back to the real protagonists: the movies

In this case, our focus is on the music, an element that, since there is sound, is as important as the images. 

The original and non-original songs that accompany the scenes are fundamental in capturing the viewer and bringing him into the world he lives on the screen. Think of what the nominated films would be like without their songs. The desert of Arrakis would not be as majestic without the compositions of Hans Zimmer, the Vespa dreamed of by Luca and Alberto would not be as precious without the voice of Gianni Morandi singing Fatti mandare dalla mamma, not to mention the voices of Billie Eilish, Beyonce or Bon Iver accompanying the end of films like 007, King Richard or Don’t Look Up. 

We at have created our own playlist with the most beautiful songs we’ve listened to in the Oscar 2022 nominated films, close your eyes and let yourself be carried away.
