Awards season comes into full focus this morning with the unveiling of the 2023 Oscar nominations.
As the Academy revealed earlier this month, 301 feature films were eligible for recognition this year. To be eligible to apply, a feature film must have opened in what is defined as a “commercial movie theater” in at least one of the following six metro areas: Los Angeles County, New York City, Bay Area, Chicago, Miami, and/or Atlanta. The window for such screenings, meanwhile, was January 1 to December 1 last year. In addition, eligible films are required to have played at least seven consecutive days in the same cinema.
This year’s nominations arrive two weeks after the broadcast of the Golden Globes, with this year’s ceremony hosted by Jerrod Carmichael. Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical film won Best Film – Drama The Fabelman family, which has garnered widespread (and well-deserved) acclaim since its release. Best Film – Musical or Comedy, meanwhile, went to Martin McDonagh Banshees of Inisherin.
Other big winners of the night were Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan, who were both honored for their performances in Daniels’ A24 smash. Everything everywhere at once.
Voting for the 95th Academy Awards ended on January 17. The ceremony itself will take place at the Dolby Theater in Ovation Hollywood on March 12.
