Oscars 2022: Dune DUne DUNE dUNE DuuuuunE

Also, The Power of the Dog

Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides.
Warner Bros.

Looking at the nominations for this year’s Academy Awards, one might say that Timothée Chalamet saw this coming.

With Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog being nominated for 12 Oscars and Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune snagging noms for 10, this year’s Academy Awards are shaping up to be an interesting battle between quiet, intimate prestige and big studio spectacle. Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story are both up for seven statues each, and while there are certainly some odd-on favorites in each category, there are also some genuine wildcards in the mix, like Javier Bardem and Nicole Kidman’s performances in Being the Ricardos, that are an important reminder of how the Academy can and will surprise you in ways you truly don’t expect.
