Chasing the Gold: Amy Smith’s Final 2022 Oscar Nominations Predictions

Here we are, the final predictions for this year’s Oscar race. This year has been a weird one, with certain categories already feeling like locks and others more unpredictable than when we started off. It has also been a year filled with potential, but with a line-up that may just be one of the most critically divisive in years.
