2023 Oscar Nominations Live: 'Everything Everywhere All At Once' Leads – The New York Times

In addition to getting a nomination for best picture, some of the stars of the film, including Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu, received acting nominations.
The Oscar nominations were spread around.

In a year when moviegoers returned en masse to big-budget spectacles — and skipped nearly everything else — Oscar voters on Tuesday spread nominations remarkably far and wide.
The blockbuster sequels “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Avatar: The Way of Water,” with $3.5 billion in combined ticket sales worldwide, were recognized in the best picture category. “Elvis,” an old-fashioned musical biopic (draped in Baz Luhrmann bling) heard its name called alongside the newfangled “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Additional nominations went to the ultrasophisticated “Tár,” which took in a scant $6 million in theaters; the German-language “All Quiet on the Western Front,” a streaming-service entry; “The Banshees of Inisherin,” a dark comedy about a frayed friendship; Steven Spielberg’s memory piece, “The Fabelmans”; the sexual assault drama “Women Talking,” set in an isolated religious colony; and a satire about the superrich, “Triangle of Sadness.”
Eight films received five or more nominations. “Everything Everywhere” had the most, with 11. “The Banshees of Inisherin” and “All Quiet on the Western Front” each had nine.
In some ways, spreading nominations widely over a number of films reflected the jumbled state of Hollywood. No one in the movie capital seems to know which end is up, with streaming services like Netflix hot then not, and studios unsure about how many films to release in theaters and whether anything but superheroes, sequels and horror stories can succeed.
The inclusion of multiple blockbusters could also signal that voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have finally decided to help the Oscars show by widening the best picture aperture. In 2009, academy leaders expanded the nominee pool to 10 from five. The audience for the ceremony was in decline, and more slots would make room for a broader range of films, perhaps even populist movies — or so academy officials hoped. Voters mostly just doubled down on little-seen art films.
The 2022 show drew 16.6 million viewers, the second-worst turnout on record after the pandemic-affected 2021 telecast. If the Nielsen ratings do not improve, the academy faces a financial precipice: Most of its revenue comes from the sale of broadcasting rights to the show. Hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake.
ABC will broadcast the 95th ceremony live on March 12.

Will Smith, the reigning best actor winner, remains eligible to win Oscars (in absentia), and his team had hoped that academy voters would be so blown away by his volcanic performance in “Emancipation” that they would at least nominate him. Set during the Civil War and directed by Antoine Fuqua, “Emancipation” stars Smith as a man who escapes slavery and joins the Union Army to fight against his former captors. It arrived on Apple TV+ in December.
But it appears that Smith remains too toxic following his behavior at last year’s ceremony, when he marched onstage and slapped Chris Rock. “Emancipation” has been largely ignored by awards organizations, including Hollywood guilds, and the Oscars followed suit on Tuesday. None of the other artists involved in “Emancipation,” including Fuqua, fared any better.

Almost everyone in Hollywood agrees that the Oscar ceremony is broken, including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which has — belatedly, given years of stops and starts — made fixing the telecast a six-alarm priority. The academy, which is under new management, had little choice after last year’s debacle, when Will Smith angrily slapped Chris Rock before going on to win the best actor trophy, stupefying viewers and embarrassing moviedom’s elite.
Specific plans for the show are still secret. So far, the academy has said that there will be a host (Jimmy Kimmel, who has done the job twice before) and that all 23 categories will be presented live. (Eight were sidelined to commercial breaks last year, in a futile effort to save time.) Unlike in previous years, the academy hired producers for the telecast who are actually experienced in making live television.
Fewer stars have attended the Oscars over the past decade, in part because they don’t want to sit through the marathon event. (Celebrities: They’re just like us!) Academy officials have said they plan to make a renewed push for A-list attendees. But one star — Smith — will not be invited, even though it is customary for best actor winners to return to present the Oscar for best actress. The academy barred him from attending for 10 years because of his “harmful behavior” toward Rock.
