2022 Oscar Predictions

It’s that time of year again. The supposed best and brightest in Hollywood have gathered to shower praise on a handful of movies. Elsewhere, the rest of the movie industry have gathered to share their own thoughts/complaints about the nominees. Whilst the relation of Oscar Wins to Movie Quality is questionable at best, there’s still a certain amount of entertainment in seeing if you can predict the winners. What can I say, I’m a sucker to peer pressure.

I have split each of the categories into two – one for who I think should win and one for who I think The Academy is likely to vote for.
