Actors Allison Williams and Riz Ahmed presented the 95th Academy Awards nominations on Tuesday. All That Breathes and The Elephant Whisperers, two Indian documentaries, have each received nominations (Oscars 2023) for Best Documentary Feature Film and Best Documentary Short Film, respectively. “Naatu Naatu” from SS Rajamouli’s RRR has received one nomination in the Best Original Song category. There were no additional nominations for RRR.
With 11 nominations, Everything Everywhere All At Once is the most nominated film. The 95th Academy Awards had nine nominations for The Banshees of Inisherin, nine nominations for All Quiet on the Western Front, and eight nominations for Elvis. The Fabelmans, a film by Steven Spielberg, was nominated seven times.
Acclaimed films like The Fabelmans, Everything Everywhere All at Once, Top Gun Maverick, The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, Avatar: The Way of Water, Aftersun, and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery are among those nominated for best picture. Brendan Fraser, Colin Farrell, and Austin Butler are among the contenders for best actor. James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Kwan, and Daniel Scheinert are on the list for the best director category.
Cate Blanchett for Tár and Michelle Yeoh for Everything Everywhere All at Once are vying for the title of best actress. Unforgettably, Viola Davis was recognized at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards for her performance in the film The Women King. Michelle Williams in Fabelmans and Danielle Deadwyler for their performances in Till as Mamie Till-Bradley and Till, respectively, cannot be overlooked and may be nominated.
Avatar: The Way of Water might be a front-runner in the other significant Oscar award category for “visual effects.” There are nine further movies up for consideration, including Top Gun: Maverick and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The event is scheduled for March 13, 2023. On January 24 at 8:30 am Eastern Time, the Oscars 2023 nominations were announced (7:00 pm IST). The event was live-streamed on Oscar.com, Oscars.org, and the Academy’s accounts on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.
