When Will the 2023 Oscar Nominations Be Announced?


Every January, film enthusiasts around the world await to watch the Academy Awards ceremony. This prestigious awards show is often considered to be one of the most competitive and glamorous events of the year, with hundreds of millions of viewers tuning in to witness this glamorous event.

One of the most significant pre-Oscar ceremonies is when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces their nominations. This usually live event is broadcast on their Twitter account.

Best Picture

For 2023, Oscar voters will select from among a wide range of Best Picture nominees to include major money-making blockbusters (Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water), prestige gems (Everything Everywhere All at Once and TAR), international entries (Triangle of Sadness) and late breaking dramas such as All Quiet on the Western Front.

Films directed by modern masters such as Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Todd Field and Baz Luhrmann can be found alongside more intimate director-driven projects like Tar, Women Talking and The Fabelmans.

There's one film in particular that defies expectations and breaks the Hays Code: Dances With Wolves. Starring Kevin Costner, this Western helped revive the genre while receiving critical acclaim for its performances.

Best Actor

Oscar awards are one of the biggest and most prestigious honors in any year, making them coveted by everyone who wants to be part of this prestigious ceremony.

The Oscars' best actor category is one of the most important honors given out by the Academy. This honor allows them to publicly acknowledge and celebrate the talent of actors and actresses alike.

Nominated for the 2023 Oscars, there are many deserving recipients. Some are first timers and some have previously been nominated but never won an award.

The Best Actor race is shaping up as a three-horse race, with Austin Butler (Elvis) and Brendan Fraser (The Whale) both being predicted winners. But they'll have to compete against one-time frontrunner Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin) and Bill Nighy (Living).

Best Actress

On March 12th 2023, the Oscar Awards will be held in Los Angeles - an exciting milestone in the world of films. Many prominent celebrities from around the globe are expected to join this prestigious award ceremony.

The Best Actress nominees are an essential part of the night and we all keep our eyes peeled for them. It is a prestigious award that will make you famous around the globe.

Michelle Yeoh took home the crown for A24's Everything Everywhere All at Once, becoming the first Asian actress ever to win this prestigious award. Jamie Lee Curtis was nominated for her performance in this movie - marking the first time she'd been recognized since her 2014 turn in Moonlight.

Best Supporting Actor

Actor Ke Huy Quan completed an incredible comeback story Sunday by winning Best Supporting Actor at the 2023 Oscars. Beating out fellow Vietnamese and Han Chinese stars Brendan Gleeson ("The Banshees of Inisherin"), Brian Tyree Henry ("Causeway"), Judd Hirsch ("The Fabelmans"), and Barry Keoghan from "The Banshees of Inisherin," Ke Huy Quan has achieved great success since making a comeback in late 2018.

Quan joined Michelle Yeoh and Hong Chau as the first Asian-identifying nominees to win an acting award. In his moving speech, Quan paid tribute to his mother and mentors while vowing to keep inspiring other struggling actors that success is possible one day.

Best Supporting Actress

Soon, the Academy Awards nominations will be unveiled. In 2023, some of Hollywood's finest actors, directors, and producers are gearing up to make history at their 95th annual celebration!

This year's Oscars promise to be an historic one with four Asian performers nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Angela Bassett's nomination as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever marked Marvel Studios' first-ever acting nomination for a franchise film.

But the race is far from over for Bassett and her fellow nominees. Kerry Condon's win at the BAFTA Awards and Jamie Lee Curtis' powerful performance as Deirdre in Everything Everywhere All At Once at the Screen Actors Guild Awards have created a three-horse race.

Beyond the honorary gold statuettes, winning an Oscar is a monumental accomplishment. Your name will be immortalized in every trailer related to the Academy Awards for life - so it pays off to get nominated and strive for glory! It truly pays off to get nominated and compete for this coveted honor!

Best Director

2023 is set to be an exciting year in the film industry, with plenty of awards up for grabs. One highly competitive race is the Best Director category, where hotly tipped Martin McDonagh will compete against Steven Spielberg and outsider Ruben Ostlund for top honors.

While there are some big names in this race, it also presents an opportunity for up-and-comers to shine. Director Todd Field's debut feature TAR has received critical acclaim and follows a composer and conductor whose career takes a turn when she falls in love with a young fashion model.

Other contenders for Best Picture include Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, who earned their first Oscar nomination with the breathtaking Everything Everywhere All At Once; Martin McDonagh's poignant Banshees of Inisherin; and the amazing David Fincher.

Best Original Screenplay

When it comes to Best Original Screenplay, there are plenty of worthy contenders. Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin, Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner's The Fabelmans as well as Todd Field's TAR are all in contention for this honor.

Competition for Oscar night is fierce, especially with only one foreign-language film having ever won. But Everything Everywhere All at Once - the story of a Chinese-American laundromat owner who connects to parallel universe versions of herself - could prove just as popular with American voters as expected.

Few days before the Academy revealed its nominations, The Writers Guild of America awarded Triangle of Sadness with its Screenplay category nomination at the BAFTAs. All in all, it appears likely that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schweinert -- directors who earned a WGA nod -- will take home this prize.

Best Film Editing

The Academy Awards are the highest recognition given annually to filmmaking excellence. They are presented during a live televised ceremony usually held in late February or early March each year.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences selects the nominees. These include writers, directors, actors/actresses and cinematographers.

Best Film Editing is an intensely competitive category. As the winner will have another opportunity to add another title to their Oscar collection, this makes for an exciting watch.

This year's competition is strong, especially for war movies and musicals. Son Lux's work for Everything Everywhere All at Once and Carter Burwell's music for The Banshees of Inisherin fit the action perfectly, while Volker Bertelmann's score for All Quiet on the Western Front also impressed. It promises to be an exciting category to follow in 2023!

Best Animated Feature

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the Best Animated Feature category annually since 2001 to recognize the finest animated feature film produced.

At that time, animation had not yet gained recognition as an art form of importance. The industry hoped the prestige of receiving this award would spur more animation production.

Though there remains a distinct gap in recognition between live-action and animation films, there has been an uptick in enthusiasm toward this medium over recent years - which could translate to increased enthusiasm at the upcoming awards ceremony.

This year, there are several contenders in the race. Netflix's "Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio," A24's Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, Dreamworks Animation's Puss in Boots: The Last Wish and Disney/Pixar's Turning Red are among them.

Best Documentary Feature

The Best Documentary Feature category is one of the most competitive of the year, and while there are no clear-cut favorites this time around, five movies are showing great promise to pack major significance into a small package.

Simon Lereng Wilmont's deeply personal and wrenching "The House Made of Splinters" (NatGeo/Neon, $1 million worldwide) explores a tiny orphanage staffed by remarkable social workers through scenes of joy, play, utter desperation -- with an ending as shocking as any I've recently witnessed.

Another contender is Laura Poitras' Venice Golden Lion winner and critics' favorite "All the Beauty and the Bloodshed" (HBO/Neon), a compelling portrait of artist-activist Nan Goldin who was arrested and imprisoned for her work on the Sackler family whose massive opioid profits caused a significant number of deaths in America. Already featured on DOC NYC's Short List, it earned Cinema Eye Honors as well as BAFTA, DGA, and PGA nominations.
