2023 Oscar Nominations Announced

Oscar-winning actor-producer Riz Ahmed and actor Allison Williams announced the 95th Oscars nominations today (January 24), live from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater via a global live stream on oscar.com, oscars.org and the Academy’s digital platforms, an international satellite feed and broadcast media.

A24’s multiverse epic Everything Everywhere All at Once led the nominations list with 11 overall appearances in key categories, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh), Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan), and Best Supporting Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu).

Trailing just behind are the German war epic All Quiet on the Western Front and Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin, both of which scored nine nominations — including four acting nominations for the latter’s cast members Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan, and Kerry Condon.

Blockbuster titles also hit big with the Academy, including Avatar: The Way of Water and Top Gun: Maverick in Best Picture. Angela Bassett, the Best Supporting Actress frontrunner, also became the first-ever performer from a Marvel movie to bag an Oscar nomination for her work in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The 95th Academy Awards will air Sunday, March 12, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel will return as host.
