It’s interesting

— Oscars without a red carpet: stars walk the champagne carpet.

— This year, all 23 nominations will be broadcast live.


— Andrea Riseborough’s unexpected Best Actress nomination. Riseborough was nominated for the Texas drama Leslie after a host of A-list stars flocked to her production.

— The other two best actress nominees are Danielle Deadweiler (“Tongue”) and Viola Davis (“The King’s Wife”).

— Top scorer John Williams (“The Fablemen”) is 90 years old, the oldest candidate in history.

No woman was nominated for Best Director

No women were nominated for Best Director this year, following historic wins for Best Director by Chloe Zhao (“Nomads”) and Jane Campion (“Power of the Dog”).

Will Smith won’t be there

Smith, who won last year’s best actor statuette for playing the father of Venus and Serena Williams in the biopic King Richard, has been banned from the Oscars and other academy events for 10 years after punching comedian Chris Rock. 2022 ceremony. (The Rock recently joked about the explosive moment on Netflix’s Live Stream.)

— Fablemen

— Warehouse

— Top Gun: Maverick

— Triangle of Sorrow–

— Women talk. Here’s a guide on how to watch them.


— Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s indie sci-fi hit “All at once” comes in with a leading 11 nominations.

— However, Irish Friends’ dark comedy “Banshees of Inishreen” has nine nods, a total tied with Netflix’s World War I-set “Quiet on the Western Front.”

— For Best Actress, Michelle Yeoh (“All At Once”) may have a slight edge over Cate Blanchett (“The Narrows”).

— When Brendan Fraser (“Keith”) and Austin Butler (“Elvis”) are in the mix, it’s harder to call best actor.

— Angela Bassett (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) and Ke Hui Quan (“All At Once”) lead the way in the supporting categories.

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Screen Actors Guild Award may make a big splash in the supporting actress category.

Steven Spielberg (The Fablemen) may win his third Best Director Oscar, but Daniels may be the front-runner.

Also, don’t expect to see Will Smith at the Oscars anytime soon. After beating Chris Rock at last year’s ceremony, Smith was banned by the Academy for 10 years. During a live Netflix special on Saturday, Rock finally responded to Smith by speaking out about the incident.

“Everything everywhere at once”

It seems to be the year of the sci-fi movie, as the film received the most nominations — 11, including best picture, actress (Yeoh), supporting actor (Ke Hui Kuan) and supporting actress (Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu). — and there’s a real chance he’ll win over everyone everywhere at once.
