Movie awards season, as well as its accompanying ‘For Your Consideration’ campaigns, are in full swing and Dune has been getting plenty of well-deserved attention from critics. Today, the Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) revealed the full list nominees for their 2022 Film Awards event. Dune: Part One was the most nominated movie this year, earning nods in a total of 10 categories—ahead of CODA and Belfast with nine each—including Best Picture and Denis Villeneuve for Best Director.
Winners will be announced at the 5th Annual HCA Film Awards on February 28, 2022. The venue and additional detail regarding the in-person ceremony will be announced at a later date. It will also be streamed live on the HCA’s official YouTube channel.
It’s great to see Dune: Part One receiving recognition across this wide range of categories, from Hans Zimmer’s otherworldly movie soundtrack to Patrice Vermette’s production design work in creating authentic and realistic settings. My only criticism on the selection—considering standout acting performances from Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson, among others—is that there weren’t any nominations for individual cast members in those respective categories.
