Three years (and counting) of a pandemic have made movies more special than ever. We cherish those rare opportunities when it feels safe to go to a theater and enjoy the best films on the biggest screens with fellow moviegoers. In 2022, that magic continued its return, thanks to a selection of noteworthy movies that drew us to theaters.
On March 12, Hollywood will honor those top films during the 95th Academy Awards. Unfortunately, unless you’re famous enough to see the celebration in person at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, you must watch the show live at home or from another venue. Thankfully, there are many ways to do so.
