The 95th Acadamy Awards nominations were announced this morning by actors Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams. The Oscars are America’s most prestigious awards for outstanding cinematic achievements. Assessing both artistic and technical merit, The Oscars honors the year’s most exceptional, innovative films.

Viewership of The Oscars has declined year by year as movie theaters have struggled to stay open and streaming services have risen in prominence. But this year, things feel different. The awards are filled with major blockbuster successes like Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as inspiring comeback stories from Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan who have both been out of the limelight for many years. The pop-culture community has rallied behind these incredible stories told in 2022, making me believe a resurgence in viewership is bound to happen in 2023.

Every year at The Oscars there are standout performances, surprising nominations, and movies that were outright snubbed. 2023 is no exception. The mind-bending multiversal adventure Everything Everywhere All at Once led the pack with 11 nominations (tied for the second most of all-time beside The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), followed closely by All Quiet on the Western Front, a tragic anti-war film set in World War I (based on the novel by Erich Maria Remarque), and The Banshees of Inisherin, a tale of two lifelong friends falling out of friendship amidst the Irish Civil War.

Jimmy Kimmel will be returning as host of the award show for the third time. The awards can be watched live on ABC on Sunday, March 12th at 8:00 pm EST. If you subscribe to one of the major live TV networks (Spectrum, Xfinity, Hulu Live TV, YouTubeTV, etc.) you can watch on ABC.com and with the ABC app by linking your provider.

Take a look at the complete list of nominations to see which of your favorite movies of the year earned the recognition they deserve. Stick around to the end of the article for our reaction to the nominations and which actors we think were snubbed of a nomination this year.

There you have it! That is every nomination for The Oscars in 2023. If you want to add any of these shows or movies to your watchlist, check out our complete list here: The Oscars Nominations 2023.

What a year for cinema! It’s great to see Paul Mescal receive the recognition he deserves as one of Hollywood's most captivating new stars. After his role in Normal People, I became an instant fan. It’s also genuinely shocking that Decision to Leave did not receive a nomination for Best International Feature. In my opinion, Decision to Leave was a clear winner in nearly every technical aspect of filmmaking (cinematography, directing, editing, sound design, etc.) and it’s a shame that Park Chan-wook didn’t get a nod, especially after winning Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival in 2022.

On the other end of the spectrum, it’s surprising to see Ana de Armas receive a nomination for Blonde considering how many people genuinely hated that movie. In fact, Blonde was just nominated for eight Razzies—the parody award show dedicated to highlighting the worst films of the year…

A film that was also snubbed of praise is Jordan Peele’s newest alien thriller movie Nope. Despite Peele’s first two films receiving praise from critics and fans, there was quite a bit of contention surrounding the strength of his newest film. While I loved Nope and think both Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer deserved an Oscar nomination, I can see how this unorthodox approach to an alien story might not resonate with all viewers.
