Oscar 2023: Everything Everywhere All At Once Leads Nominations.

Must read

Everything Everywhere All at Once leads the field with 11 nominations at this year’s Academy Awards. A quirky adventure follows a woman played by Michelle Yeoh. She flies across the multiverse as different versions of herself. Other Best Picture nominees include Top Gun. Non-compliant, avatar: Waterway and Banshee by Inisherin. Tonight’s nominees include Cate Blanchett, Brendan Fraser, Britain’s Andrea Riseborough, and Bill Nighy.

Hard on Everything Everywhere’s heels are The Banshees of Inisherin, Martin McDonagh’s black comedy starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as former friends on a small Irish island, and All Quiet on the Western Front, Edward Berger’s devastating Netflix drama about an idealistic German soldier sent to the trenches. In the nominations, which were revealed in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, Banshees took nods for best picture, directing, editing, original screenplay, leading actor (for Farrell), supporting actor (for both Gleeson and Barry Keoghan), supporting actress (for Kerry Condon), production design and original score.

Meanwhile, Berger’s film, which received a record-breaking 14 Bafta nominations last Thursday, received no acting nominations but has been recognized in nine other categories, including Best Picture. Surprisingly included in this list of 10, Todd Field’s drama Tár, about an arrogant conductor played by Cate Blanchett, was nominated for six categories that surpassed expectations. The high-octane belated sequel starring Tom Cruise also did well with six nominations, including one for its adapted screenplay, but no fourth nomination for Cruise himself.

Assuming no more dramatic events take place this year, the producers are said to be trying to keep viewers back with a solid anchor. This year’s Bafta Awards take place almost a month before the Academy Awards ceremony on February 19, but there have been some changes, including a new venue (Royal Festival Hall) and a new host (Richard E. Grant). can be added. Coverage Backstage, led by Alison Hammond.
