FBC 2022 Oscar Coverage, Part X: What My Oscar Nominations Would Have Been

So, I’ve been predicting the nomination, and I’ve been feeling strangely good about my picks, which is almost a guarantee that I’m going to crash and burn Sunday night. But, while I have given my predictions for what I thought would win and be nominated, I haven’t said what my personal nominees would have been had the Oscars been left up to me, which seems like a pretty great idea, now that I think about it.

So, here is what I would have nominated. Leaving out a few categories out (International Feature, all shorts, Best Documentary) because I don’t feel like I’ve seen enough to make a well-educated group of nominees.

But, here we go. The nominees are…
