Here is a summary of the key nominations at this year’s Oscar Awards as the credits have rolled:
The independent sci-fi comedy-drama Everything Everywhere All At Once received 11 nominations for Academy Awards, which is the most. All Quiet On The Western Front and The Banshees of Inisherin, each with nine nominations, came in second and third, respectively.
Top honors on the list of nominees also went to Elvis, The Fabelmans, Top Gun: Maverick, Tar, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Avatar: The Way of Water.
The acting nominees include Andrea Riseborough and Bill Nighy from the United Kingdom, Brendan Fraser, and Cate Blanchett Martin McDonagh and Steven Spielberg received nominations in the best director category.
With 11 nominations, the twisty sci-fi adventure Everything Everywhere All At Once led the 95th Academy Awards nominations announced on Tuesday morning.
It was closely followed by the World War I epic All Quiet on the Western Front and the darkly humorous look at a friendship that takes place during the Irish Civil War, The Banshees of Inisherin, both of which received nine nominations.
In what is expected to be a much more commercially successful group of honorees than in recent years, all three films will compete for best picture.
The two highest-grossing movies of the year, Avatar: The Way of Water and Top Gun: Maverick, are included in the best picture race, along with Elvis, a musical biopic that was popular with audiences last summer.
The semi-autobiographical The Fabelmans directed by Steven Spielberg, Tár, a drama about a violent conductor, Women Talking, a look at the members of a repressive religious community.
Triangle of Sadness, a parody of the 1% that partially takes place on a mega-yacht, is among the other contenders.
The nominations were revealed at a trying time for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the organization that oversees the awards and the movie industry.
The Oscars’ ratings have sharply dropped in recent years, endangering the broadcast’s licensing fees, the Academy’s main source of income.
However, everyone loves a comeback story so it’s announced that the Oscars will once again be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who has served as emcee three times. He presided over the ceremony in 2017 and 2018.
After going two years without a host, the Oscars resumed their host format last year with Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall. On March 12, 2023, the Dolby Theatre at the Ovation Hollywood will host the 95th Academy Awards, which will be broadcast live on ABC.
