The 2022 Oscars hosted the #OscarsFanFavorite, offering the most fan-quoted film on Twitter to have their little tribute at the ceremony.
Because we must celebrate the return with great fanfare of the cinematographic machine in 2021, the Oscars 2022 have decided to innovate with #OscarsFanFavorite. From February 14 until March 3, 2022, users of the social network Twitter can name their favorite film, the one they consider deserving of a small victory informal.
The film does not need to be on the official list of cities to be selected. The one with the most votes will be entitled to a “tribute” moment, in the absence of a real price during the ceremony. And inevitably, since this announcement, there has been a surge on Twitter, where each cinephile goes there with his favorite of the year, the film that he considers poorly qualified, even shunned by the Oscars.
The Academy announces new #OscarsFanFavorite category where Twitter users vote for the winner using the hashtag

Obviously, social networks indulging in the fever of pop culture events, we immediately think of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the alloy of the three cinematographic sagas of the Spider. The film may have been cited for its visual effects, but the fans would undoubtedly have liked to see it more highlighted. As pointed out The Hollywood Reporter in its relay of the announcement, it’s a safe bet that the film will be the winner, as the community power of Marvel is unifying. And indeed, his name already comes up often.
However, a few other titles come up frequently on the hashtag, such as Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguein particular for the symbolic value of the film (an author’s vision which materializes, after the suffocation of a studio) or The Eternalscoming out of the classic Marvel codes. However, Shang Chi and No Way Home were Oscar favorites (both for Best Visual Effects citation). A misunderstanding for some moviegoers, who would like to congratulate the “risk-taking” signed Chloé Zhao.
Apart from superheroes, we can also find the strange Malignantwhich had a rather mixed reception in Europe, but which convinced our American colleagues quite a bit. Our children’s souls worn by Joaquin Phoenix also returns regularly, sadly snubbed by the Oscars according to his supporters.
Same thing for Matrix Resurrections and House of Gucci (who only got a very small quote for best makeup and hairstyles). If gender debates “what is the best film of the year?” did not wait for the Oscars to exist on social networks, in other words the #OscarsFanFavorite will add fuel to the fire (of passion). Note also that this is not the only “hashtag contest” launched by the academy since tweeters can also highlight the most memorable scene of their movie year with #OscarsCheerMoment.
The scene receiving the most quotes will be broadcast during the ceremony which will take place on March 27, 2022. Suffice to say that we already have the feeling that Spider-Man will be present during the event, whatever happens.
