The State of the 2022 Oscar Race: Golden Globes, Critics Choice, and Academy Shortlists Unveiled!

Who's leading the race for Oscar gold?

by Brennan Dubé

A lot has transpired since the we drafted our awards season slates back in early November. Last week, the “reformed” Hollywood Foreign Press Association unveiled this years Golden Globe nominees, and the critics spoke as the Critics Choice Nominations were also released. The Academy also helped shape the race by announcing their highly anticipated shortlists, which cover more categories this year than ever before. 

I’m joined by Nick, Sophia, and Jonathan, and we breakdown all the shocks, awes, and snubs from the nominees. We rant, we discuss, we reminisce… we reference Malignant at least twice, AND we discuss the chances of Oscar recognition for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
