British producer Tanya Seghatchian has become the first Armenian to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture with “The Power of the Dog,” which many consider the frontrunner to win. If the film does win, she will be the first Armenian to win the top prize at the Oscars, Horizon Weekly reported.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced nominations for the 2022 Academy Awards, and Armenians turn out to have played an integral role in 27 of the 53 nominated films, the Armenian Film Society said.
The highlights also include Narbeh Mirzakhanian, who distributed four films that landed nominations, including “Licorice Pizza,” which is nominated for Best Picture, as well as “No Time To Dine,” House of Gucci,” and “Cyrano.”
The 94th Academy Awards will be held on March 27 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
