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


the 94th Academy Awards are almost upon us. The ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 27 (Monday morning, in India), and some of the best films of the past year will be honoured. Although some favorites have already emerged, as always, there are certain categories within everyone’s reach. As we head into the 2022 Oscars, we predict the favorites in the top six categories — Supporting Actor and Actress, Lead Actor and Actress, Director and Picture — and also reveal who we’d like to see as the winners.

Best Supporting Actress

Who will win: Ariana DeBose

While all of the nominees delivered believable and compelling performances, West Side Story actress Ariana DeBose is likely to win the coveted trophy. It’s so exciting to see a star emerge from a Steven Spielberg movie after so many years, in such a way. DeBose is not only a talented actress, but she can also sing and dance with equal ease.

Who should win: Kirsten Dunst

It would be nice to see Kirsten Dunst win her first-ever Oscar nomination. Dunst has always made bold choices (Interview with the Vampire, The Virgin Suicides, and Melancholia, to name a few), and has almost always excelled. Her performance as a troubled and vulnerable mother in the Netflix movie The Power of the Dog is no exception.

Best Supporting Actor

Who will win: Troy Kotsur

If Troy Kotsur wins the award for CODA, it will not only be recognition for an excellent performance, but it will also mean a big step in the right direction for representation. He’s already made history several times this awards season and is in all likelihood set to win the Oscar for his empathetic and poignant performance.

Who should win: Kodi Smit-McPhee

Kodi Smit-McPhee, 25, was a revelation in Jane Campion’s Western The Power of the Dog in Montana (shot in New Zealand). He plays a soft-spoken, delicate-looking teenager who, unbeknownst to even his mother, is more willful than he lets on. While we wouldn’t mind if heavy favorite Troy Kotsur wins the trophy, Smit-McPhee deserves it more.

Best Actress

Who will win: Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart’s turn as Diana Spencer in Spencer, with her supreme mastery of her accent and peculiar mannerisms, can prove overwhelming. That’s unlikely though, and Chastain should win the trophy.

Who should win: Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain gave it her all as evangelist Tammy Faye Messner in Michael Showalter’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye. She didn’t let makeup and prosthetics do the trick for her and balanced several over-the-top scenes with small moments of vulnerability.

Best actor

Who will win: Will Smith

Will Smith as Richard Williams in Reinaldo Marcus Green’s sports drama King Richard is the performance to beat. The Academy does not necessarily reward the most qualitative performances. Sometimes actors who voters think deserve an Oscar also receive a statuette. Smith was awesome in the film and is a clear favorite, but not necessarily the best actor this year.

Who should win: Benedict Cumberbatch

Cumberbatch gives a career-best performance as charismatic but cruel rancher Phil Burbank in Jane Campion’s Western The Power of the Dog. The improbable casting (Cumberbatch is British) works wonders, despite the actor’s imperfect mastery of the Montana accent. His deep-set eyes sport a curiously languid and vulnerable gaze when alone, shedding the laddish exterior to give a glimpse into his otherwise inscrutable psyche.

Best Director

Who will win: Jane Campion

Despite her recent foot-in-mouth moment, Jane Campion is set to become the third woman to win the Best Director Oscar, for her Netflix western The Power of the Dog. Like the film, Campion was a frontrunner in the awards race, crucially winning the all-important DGA award in the run-up to the Oscars. It will also be the first time that two women have won this honor in consecutive years. Chloe Zhao won for Eternals last year.

Who should win: Ryusuke Hamaguchi

Spielberg already has two Best Director Oscars, Paul Thomas Anderson has none, but he doesn’t win for Licorice Pizza. Kenneth Branagh might have been a favorite had Belfast been a better movie, but his Oscar career will have to wait. CODA, as we know, steered past Sian Heder’s snub in the category. So let’s go ahead and cast Ryusuke Hamaguchi for Drive My Car, because no one else could have made this movie.

Best Picture

Who will win: The power of the dog

Despite a significant late game slowdown, it looks like Jane Campion The power of the dog is still the favorite to win the grand prize. He does, after all, with 12 nominations this year. A win for the Meditative Western will mean a first win for Best Picture for a Streaming Service. The Power of the Dog is a Netflix movie; and the streamer has produced several Best Picture nominees in the past – Roma, The Irishman, Marriage Story, Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7 and again this year, with Don’t Look Up.

Who should win: CODA

While the Academy has had a spotty record when it comes to the Best Picture category in the recent past – who can forget The Social Network, Roma and La La Land who have failed to win in their years respective – it would be a real upset if a low-key Apple TV+ drama released months ago ends up beating The Power of the Dog. Ironically, this will also mean that Apple walks away with the bragging rights of being the first streamer to win Best Picture, despite never having been nominated in the past, unlike Netflix.
