Predict The 2022 EE BAFTA Award Winners Contest

By Matt Neglia 

The 2022 EE BAFTA Awards will be held this weekend on Sunday, March 13th. Considering they are one of the few groups with Academy membership crossover, they can sometimes help sway our final Oscar predictions as they can confirm, turn the tide, or provide misdirection with their choices. We are sharing our predictions down below and kindly ask you to participate in our contest where the winner will receive a pair of Oscar-nominated films on 4K/BluRayDVD (provided that they have a United States Address). All categories must be predicted, with the submission deadline being the day of the awards, before the winners are announced.

Please click below to enter your picks for the contest. Best of luck and enjoy the show!​
