Now that we have moved past the 94th Annual Academy Awards, let’s look forward to 95th rendition of the awards in 2023! Throughout the course of the year I am going to be updating this list with movies eligible. It is any movies that come out after January 1, 2022. I don’t know when the cutoff point is, but until then, any movie I see that came out in the year 2022 will eligible for my personal Oscar awards.

It is going to look really funky for the first few versions of these nominations because I have only seen a handful of movies. Once we get more into the award season later in 2022 then we will get more serious about this. But for now, I am going to enjoy this process of working through my own Oscar thoughts for all movies eligible for the 95th Annual Academy Awards.

I am not going to be typing out a ton of explanations until I get more movies on this list.
