Oscar Nominations for 2022


Anyone with any sanity left can only hope that the horrendous “Everything Everywhere All At Once” does not win for best picture. It’s bad enough this worst-ever movie was nominated. It is good to see that Top Gun was nominated – normally the Academy does not like big box-office action movies like this one. Babylon – is not on this list at all, so some sanity still exists. Hopefully, Steven Speilberg will win best director, The Fabelmans for best picture and Michele Williams for Best Actress given her many previous nominations. She is long overdue to win her first Oscar.
