West Side Story proved — much like its predecessor — to be a hit among Academy members, with Spielberg's vibrant remake racking up a total of 7 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. The original 1961 film still reigns as one of the most lauded cinematic musicals in history, having won 10 Oscars at the 34th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in 1962, including a golden statue for Rita Moreno in her role as Anita.

With an all-star cast that  sees Rachel Zegler as María, Ansel Elgort as Tony, Ariana DeBose as Anita (which DeBose earned a Best Supporting Actress nod for) and David Alvarez as Bernardo, among so many others, West Side Story really is one of the year's can't-miss films — and a huge contender for some of the top prizes at the 2022 Academy Awards, too.
