Oscars 2022: Ahead of the 94th Academy Awards, here’s predicting who will win, and who should win

Will it be Will Smith or Benedict Cumberbatch, The Power of the Dog or CODA? Ahead of Monday’s 94th Academy Awards, here’s a prediction of who will win at the Oscars 2022, and who should win in the six top categories.

The 94th Academy Awards are almost upon us. The ceremony will be held on Sunday, March 27 (Monday morning, in India), and some of the best films of the past year will be honoured. While some favourites have already emerged, as always, there are certain categories that are anybody’s for the taking. As we build towards the 2022 Oscars, we predict the favourites in the top six categories–Supporting Actor and Actress, Lead Actor and Actress, Director and Picture–and also reveal who we’d want to see as the winners.
Best Supporting Actress
Who will win: Ariana DeBose
While all nominees delivered credible and convincing performances, West Side Story actor Ariana DeBose is likely to take home the coveted trophy. It’s so exciting to see a breakout star emerge from a Steven Spielberg movie after so many years, in such a big way. DeBose isn’t just a talented actor, but she can also sing and dance with equal ease.
Who should win: Kirsten Dunst
It would nice to see Kirsten Dunst take home the Oscar from her first-ever nomination. Dunst has always made daring choices (Interview with the Vampire, The Virgin Suicides and Melancholia, to name a few), and almost always excelled. Her performance as the troubled, vulnerable mother in the Netflix film The Power of the Dog is no exception.
