Here is a list of all the Oscar nominations for the 2023 Academy Awards, featuring Everything Everywhere All at Once & Avatar 2 The Way of Water Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Angela Bassett

It’s that time of year again. Time to debate why we care about the Oscars. Time to talk about how it’s all a big waste of time. Time to scoff at the nominees and remark how the Academy is out of touch. Time to watch it all anyway and enjoy the heck out of it. The Academy Awards announced the 2023 Oscar nominees today, and genre fare came up big in the nominations that would have, in years past, never had a chance to be considered thanks to being “not serious” enough. These include Best Picture nominations for sci-fi film Avatar: The Way of Water, kung-fu / sci-fi / action flick Everything Everywhere All at Once, and the action sequel Top Gun: Maverick.

Of course, the expanded Best Picture list (10 nominees) helps with this, but the Academy has been working to diversify its voting base as well and stop all the votes coming from stodgy old white guys who only respect dramatic things that are really, really serious. Then again, Everything Everywhere All at Once landing an Oscar nomination isn’t much of a surprise given its success throughout the awards season, but Avatar‘s pickup of a Best Picture nod is a bit surprising as it hadn’t had many nominations outside of technical ones leading up to this. The lesson here is to never count James Cameron out. Top Gun: Maverick pulling into the 2023 Oscar Best Picture contention is also a slight surprise as the film was favored early but had fallen out of the running after missing a bunch of nominations in other awards shows.

Joining these three films in the Oscar race for Best Picture are more traditional nominations: All Quiet on the Western Front, The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, The Fabelmans, Tár, Triangle of Sadness, and Women Talking. Though, it should be noted that both Banshees and Triangle of Sadness are dark comedies (and fantastic).

A few other major nominations came in with Jamie Lee Curtis picking up her first Oscar nomination ever with EEAO, for Supporting Actress, and the movie was one of the leaders in nominations for the 2023 awards. Angela Bassett also became the first person ever to be nominated for a role in a Marvel film, which had to happen at some point just by the law of averages, but it is incredibly deserved for her powerful performance. We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention that RRR made it to the Oscars as well, landing a nomination for Best Song for “Naatu Naatu,” an absolute jammer. This marks the first time ever an Indian song has been nominated for the award, which seems bonkers considering Bollywood does nothing but churn out musicals (though RRR is Tollywood).
