Oscars 22: Best Picture–CODA Frontrunner

My Life as an Oscar Historian, 1986-present

Oscars 2022: How one group, Screen Actors Guild (SAG) changed the Oscar race overnight!

In a future essay, I will explain why The Power of the Dog, the most nominated film and the most critically acclaimed movie of the year, is NOT going to win the top award, Best Picture.

Right now, CODA is the frontrunner to win Oscar Gold, followed by King Richard (my second choice) and Belfast (third).

All three films are well-acted, message-oriented, middlebrow crowd-pleasers, the most suitable attributes for winning the Best Picture.
