The 2023 awards season continues with Tuesday’s 95th Academy Awards nominees rollout.
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” dominated the announcement with 11 nominations, including Michelle Yeoh for best actress in a leading role. The film’s Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu were both nominated for best actress in a supporting role.
Yeoh is only the second Asian woman to be nominated for the best actress Oscar. The first, Merle Oberon, hid her Asian ancestry when she was nominated for “The Dark Angel” in 1935.
The Academy notably failed to nominate a single woman for best director — despite Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking” receiving a best picture nomination.
“All Quiet on the Western Front” received 10 nominations, including best picture and best international feature Film. Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” tied Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” with eight nominations each. “Banshees” stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson were nominated for best actor and best supporting actor, respectively; Austin Butler received a best actor nod for “Elvis.”
Stephen Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” was nominated in seven categories. He received his ninth best director nod, tying Martin Scorcese for the second-most nominations in the category behind William Wyler’s 13 nods.
Todd Field’s “Tár” received six nominations, and James Cameron, whose “Avatar” sequel “The Way of Water” broke box office records, saw the fantasy adventure earn four nominations, including best picture.
Rihanna received a best original song nomination for “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
The nominees will have to wait with bated breath until the show airs on Sunday, March 12, to see if they’ll take home a statue. After that, viewers can stream the show on ABC.com, Hulu Live TV and YouTubeTV.
While last year’s show was dominated by the slap heard ’round the world, it remains unclear what mayhem and excitement will ensue this time. Jimmy Kimmel is returning to host the show for the third time, so perhaps he’ll have to wrangle whoever may storm the stage.
Here is the complete list of nominees:
Best Actress In A Supporting Role
