The votes may be in, but we’ll have to wait until Sunday, March 12 to find out which films will make cinematic history when talk show star Jimmy Kimmel hosts the 2023 Oscars.
Everything Everywhere Everything at once leads the way with 11 nominations but faces stiff competition for the Best Picture award The Banshees of Inisherinwhich is also nominated in eight other categories is James Cameron’s highly anticipated one avatar follow-up The way of the waterand Netflix’s gripping World War I drama No news from the Western Frontwhich would become only the second foreign language film to receive the title.
Brendan Fraser is hotly tipped to take the Best Actor award for his portrayal of a morbidly obese father trying to reconnect with his daughter in The whalewhile Cate Blanchett’s performance as classical conductor Lydia Tár in Todd Field’s Tar is many critics’ choice for Best Actress.
There are 24 categories in total, including Best Director, Best Original Score, and Best Documentary Feature (you can select the excellent Navalny free on BBC iPlayer), plus the more technical prizes such as Best Visual Effects and Best Film Editing, but it will be a night to remember for all winners and losers.
It’s not just about the winners, of course. Fresh off her incredible halftime Super Bowl performance, Rihanna will be performing her song lift me up by Black Panther: Wakanda forever, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson and Janelle Monáe are among the big names who will be handing gongs to their worthy winners, and all eyes will be on whether Will Smith chooses to punch anyone this year.
