Oscars nominations 2022: the full list and my favourites

I can’t wait for the 27th of March 2022 just to be able to say “I guessed right!”. I’ve absolutely loved CODA (Children of Deaf Adults) and Dune was a visual masterpiece absolutely making right by the original book ( Dune by Frank Herbert ).

Don’t Look Up goes well as a satire and it’s filled with A-listers but I don’t really think it’s Oscar material. But then again, imho, Moonlight wasn’t either…
I’m yet to watch the movies which have not been marked with italics so I might come back and revisit my prediction for the Best Picture before the 27th
