    Default The Official 2022 Oscar Discussion/Contest Thread

    It's time.

    Welcome to the 2022 Oscar Contest! We should have a somewhat normal Oscar season this year. At least more normal than last year. There's a lot of Oscar type films that are starting to be released, so I thought it was about time to create our Oscar thread.

    The Rules

    Oscar night is right around the corner, so I'm going to post the rules for those who might not be familiar with them. Please tell your friends from other boards to come on over and join us. The more the merrier.

    You have until showtime on March 27, 2022.

    IMPORTANT: Don't forget the tie breaker. It's simple: Basically, everybody will submit their choices like usual, except they will also add which film they think will win the most Oscars and give a number. In case of a tie, whomever has the closest number without going over is the winner. If the tie remains, the person who submits their ballot earliest is the winner.

    Predictions have to be in by showtime, so there is no rush to post them. We still have some time before Oscar night. I myself will be waiting for the last possible moment to post my predictions.


    Remember, these are just educated guesses. None of us have seen every film nominated and I doubt if anybody has seen any of the documentary short subject nominees. Just make an educated guess. Or an uneducated guess.

    Returning this year:

    Returning this year will be the online ballot submission I created. Of course, ballots can still be submitted here. https://tinyurl.com/OscarContest2022

    Where it says "name" just put your DT.org handle, or designate in some way that you are from the Dark Tower boards. I will be sharing the same contest form with other friends and I don't want to get them confused.

    Last week alone I saw a handful of films that should be prominent come Oscar night.

    Kristen Stewart is the early front runner for Best Actress for her complete embodiment of Princess Diana in Spencer. The film should also get nominations for costume design and Production design.

    Wes Anderson's latest whimsical romp The French Dispatch should garner a lot of attention. I could see a number of nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, screenplay, Costume Design, Production Design, Score. That being said, I'm not sure I see any acting nominations because it really is an ensemble piece.

    I adored Last Night in Soho, but it seems to be polarizing people. At the very least, I could see Costume Design and Original Score nominations.

    Dune was a massively beautiful film, but it might not have captured the hearts as much as it captured the minds of viewers. That said, it's a lock for Visual Effects. I think he has a real shot at a Best Picture nomination as well.

    There are a few films that came out a little while ago that I hope are remembered. Jessica Chastain's amazing performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye and the Sundance darling CODA.

    A few other upcoming films that should get Oscar buzz are King Richard, Nightmare Alley, House of Gucci, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Belfast, West Side Story, Cyrano, The Power of the Dog, Licorice Pizza, C'mon, C'mon among others.

    I can't stand K Stew.

    French Dispatch should get nominations for: Direction, Production Design, Art Direction, Costume Design, Original Score. Chance for cinematography. If anyone gets an acting nomination is well likely be Del Toro.

    Sadly Nic Cage is sure to be overlooked for Pig.

    I would be tickled pink if Nicolas Cage gets a nomination! Pig will definitely make my Top 30 of 2021.

    One of my favorite parts of Oscar season is this:

    https://www.thewrap.com/oscars-inter...complete-list/
    Here is the list of the 93 films that have been submitted to the Academy for the Oscars Best International Feature Film category for 2021, with descriptions and links to trailers, when available.

    These films were all included on lists of films sent to voters in the category, but some have not had their qualifying runs or been vetted by the Academy. While some may turn out to be ineligible before the Academy releases its official list of qualifying films in December, instances of films not qualifying after being made available to Oscar voters are infrequent.

    3. Colombia (Memoria)
    4. Costa Rica (Clara Sola)
    5. Denmark (Flee)
    6. France (Titane)

    Licorice Pizza is getting crazy good buzz. Hoffman's son looks a lot like his dad. If he's half as good as an actor, he's in for a great career.

    I saw passing at Sundance and wasn't blown away. I do need to watch it again, especially since I have since read the book, which is fantastic and features a different ending.

    Watching the Oscar guys, what's really interesting to me is how The French Dispatch has all but disappeared. They don't even have it on their list of Best Picture possibilities and they have like 15 films on there.
