ACADEMY AWARDS

It’s that time of year again — on Tuesday, Riz Ahmed and M3GAN star Allison Williams announced the nominations for this year’s 95th Academy Awards. It’s been a somewhat heated race this year, and as usual, there were a fair share of snubs and surprises.

Everything Everywhere All At Once leads the race with eleven nominations, including for the biggest prize, Best Picture (the other contenders in that category are All Quiet on the Western Front, Avatar: The way Of Water, The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, The Fabelmans, Tár, Top Gun: Maverick, Triangle of Sadness, and Women Talking). Brian Tyree Henry received a surprise nod for his role in Causeway opposite Jennifer Lawrence, while Danielle Deadwyler was snubbed for her portrayal of Emmett Till’s mother in Till.

Andrea Riseborough’s last minute campaign worked, earning her a Best Lead Actress nod for To Leslie, while Viola Davis received nothing for her role in The Woman King. No women were nominated in the directors category, a fact that the organization Women in Film has already called out (female directors have won the past two years, including Chloé Zhao for Nomadland and Jane Campion for Power of the Dog).

The 2023 Oscars will take place Sunday, March 12 at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood at 8PM EST. Jimmy Kimmel returns as host after last year’s ceremony was led by Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall (after going host-less the previous two years).
