Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

Welcome to the 13th annual DVDTalk Best Picture Oscar Poll!

Once again let's see how far apart we are from the Oscar voters. Keep in mind that this is a poll for our favorite movies and not an attempt to predict the actual Oscar winner.

Previous DVDTalk poll winners and (Oscar winners):

2021: The Trial Of The Chicago Seven (Nomadland)
2020: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (Parasite)
2019: BlacKkKlansman (Green Book)
2018: The Shape of Water (The Shape of Water)
2017: Hell or High Water (Moonlight)
2016: Mad Max: Fury Road (Spotlight)
2015: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Birdman)
2014: Gravity (12 Years A Slave)
2013: Django Unchained (Argo)
2012: Tree Of Life (The Artist)
2011: The Social Network (The King's Speech)
2010: Inglorious Basterds (The Hurt Locker)

I believe we gave a stronger list to choose from this year as Hollywood continues to recover from Covid.

Haven’t seen it, but think Dog is lock. I would love CODA, but no shot in hell. Dog walks away and Campion wins director. Guarantee.

I think there'll be too much of a split and the majority of voters will lazily pick West Side Story because the title is so recognizable it stands out on the ballot.

It'll be the reverse of when Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan lost to surprise Shakespeare In Love.

It missed 2 major categories(screenplay and editing) and Ariana DeBose was the only performance from the film nominated. Definitely think if they had went back to the old 5 movies nominated format it would be on the bubble.

I have not seen all of them but Nightmare Alley is one I want to see

I did not like Dune at all and thought it was long and boring.

I don't think West Side Story has a chance. Power of the Dog has the be the overwhelming favorite. The only other two I could even imagine sneaking in there are Belfast and Don't Look Up.

I’m almost perfectly split between Pizza and Dog but in the end I have to vote for the “hometown girl.” Really hoping Campion gets the recognition she deserves for director too.

I have to give this a bump. It’s great to see so much movie discussion going on again!

Iíve only seen four of the BP nominees so far (Dune, Power of the Dog, Nightmare Alley, and Donít Look Up).

I may check out a couple others before the awards shows but right now I guess Iíll go with Power of the Dog.

Because this is a "favorite" thread and not a prediction thread, CODA is an easy choice for me.

My heart now belongs to Licorice Pizza. It won’t win, but movie of 2021 hands down for me.

I've seen one, and it was Dune and would not pick that as a favorite even if I had seen the others, and honestly outside maybe Nightmare Alley, not a whole lot of desire to see those.

So agree. Who picked it in this poll as their favorite Best Picture nomination?

Neither have I. Out of the choices, Dune is the only one I even care about, and I'm waiting for the 2nd half to be released to even watch it (unless I change my mind).

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

I’ve seen 4 of the nominations. One I watched on HBO Max, which was King Richard. Out of the ones I saw, I would vote West Side Story, which I saw twice. But I know it has almost no chance to win.

I’m not surprised that most here haven’t seen any or very few. These “prestige” movies aren’t exactly draws or discussion heavy topics for most message board posters.

Well, to be fair, it's a weird time for movies, plus the usual conundrum of many having been recently released. I've seen three of the nominees (CODA, Dune, Dog), and I'm planning to stream three others (DLU, Nightmare, King Richard) when I have an opportunity. In an ordinary world, I would've jumped on WSS in theaters, but I've only been to the movies twice in the last two years.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2022 Oscars)

I've only seen 5 out of 10. I'd rank them like this:

1. Licorice Pizza
2. Power of the Dog
3. Dune
4. West Side Story
5. Nightmare Alley

Drive My Car is probably the only of the 5 remaining I'm really anticipating. It hasn't played theatrically within 30 miles of me, so I'll watch when it hits HBO. I missed Belfast and King Richard when I had the opportunity. Might catch up when they hit streaming. CODA I'lll never see because I'm not paying for Apple and Don't Look Now I could watch today if I wanted to, but yeah, no.

Iíve only seen Dune, so Dune I guess.

We were going to watch Nightmare Alley last night but itís 2:30 hours so that one will have to wait a bit.

I've seen Dog, Dune, Don't Look Up, King Richard, and Nightmare Alley. Of those, King Richard was my favorite, but I realize it has zero chance of winning. Don't Look Up was the worst of those, but gladly, it also has zero chance of winning.

I wanted to like Dune. I saw it in 1 sitting, in 3D too, but it was just meh. Pretty to look at for sure, but I didn’t think it was that user friendly. I still don’t know who the Zendaya character is supposed to be. I can’t even remember the ending even though I do remember it seemed unfinished. Why did Attradies family getting taken so easily?

They were brought down from the inside. They had created a tight knit family that they thought was impenetrable but the Harkonnens were able to flip the Doctor. Since it was somebody they trusted their guard was down.
