Oscars 2022 Race: New Momentum For ‘Coda’ After SAG Awards

Predicting what way Academy Award voters will lean is no easy task, which is why Forbes is tracking wins and nominations for 10 nominees for Best Picture in other top contests throughout awards season—by that metric, Dune, The Power Of The Dogand Drive My Car appear to be this year’s leading contenders, though Coda’s success at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards could make it a frontrunner.

KEY FACTS

Belfast: 1 win, 35 nominations. Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical story about a family in Northern Ireland in the 1960s nabbed the Golden Globe award for Best Screenplay.

Coda: 2 wins, 16 nominations. This film was a surprising leader at the SAG Awards, where it won for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role.

Don’t Look Up: 0 wins, 21 nominations. None of the stars of this Netflix hit—Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep—received Oscar acting nominations.

Drive My Car: 4 wins, 10 nominations. This Japanese production picked up best picture wins from The New York Film Critics Circle Awards, the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards and the Golden Globe for Best International Film.

Dune: 1 win, 49 nominations. This is the most-nominated film overall, and led the BAFTAs nominations.

King Richard: 2 win, 25 nominations. Will Smith took home the Best Actor award at the Golden Globes and a SAG trophy for his role as Serena and Venus Williams’ father.

Licorice Pizza: 1 win, 25 nominations. This film’s one win was for Paul Thomas Anderson’s screenplay from the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Nightmare Alley: Despite being shut out at the Golden Globes, this Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchette-led vehicle picked up four Oscars nominations.

The Power Of The Dog: 9 wins, 45 nominations. This powerhouse Jane Campion movie is the winningest project of the 2022 awards season.

West Side Story: 6 wins, 35 nominations. Ariana DeBose’s performance as Anita—the same role Rita Moreno won an Oscar for in the original— has garnered several nominations and wins so far.
