Chasing the Gold: Amy’s Oscar Predictions

Chasing the Gold: Amy’s Oscar Predictions

As the newly appointed Awards Editor for InSession Film, I figured it would be a great opportunity to share my current predictions for what will get nominated at the 2022 Academy Awards. This first update comes before the announcement of the SAG nominations and the BAFTA shortlist, so we are still in a place where the race is fluid and anything can change.

The predictions are listed alphabetically, not on a basis of ranking. Additionally, the shorts categories are not included as of yet, but will be included in a later predictions update. As with predictions, these are the nominees that I am expecting to get in and not necessarily what I am hoping to get in. Without further ado, here are my current nomination predictions.
