First Oscars 2022 Nomination Predictions – September 2021

I have waited for months to start getting word of mouth from festivals and for confirmation of what is coming out this year, but now it is time for my first official predictions for the 2022 Academy Awards.

As of right now, I will only be focusing on the eight above-the-line categories and I will not be ranking the nominees, just alphabetically listing them. I plan to do these updates monthly leading up to the start of award season.

Here are my current predictions for the 2022 Oscars.
