2023 Oscar Nominations: Everything Everywhere All At Once Comes Out on Top

The wait is over! After the usual amount of speculation and last-minute predictions, this year’s Oscar nominees were announced this morning by actress Allison Williams and Oscar winner Riz Ahmed. The Daniels‘ surrealist comedy-drama Everything Everywhere All at Once led the pack with a total of 11 nods, while Martin McDonagh’s Irish drama The Banshees of Inisherin and Edward Berger’s German war epic All Quiet on the Western Front tied for nine nominations apiece.

Like every other year, there were the standard forgone conclusions and surprises among the slate of nominations. Sarah Polley’s intense Canadian drama Women Talking, based on Miriam Toews’s award-winning novel, managed both a Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture nomination despite being left out in the cold at the Golden Globes, but lost out on the Best Acting and Directing categories altogether. Both Andrea Riseborough (To Leslie) and Michelle Williams (The Fabelmans) snuck into the Best Actress category with last-minute surges in campaign support, while powerful performances from Viola Davis (The Woman King), Emma Thompson (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande), and Danielle Deadwyler (Till) went unrecognized by the Academy. And perhaps most noticeably, despite a stellar year for women filmmakers behind the camera—with Polley, Gina Prince-Bythewood, Marie Kreutzer, and Charlotte Wells all helming critical favourites—the Best Directing category saw only male nominees.

Despite that disappointing step backward, new records were set. Angela Bassett managed to snag the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first-ever acting nod for her turn in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Steven Spielberg received a record-breaking 12th Best Picture nomination as a producer on The Fabelmans. With his Best Director nod for the same film, the filmmaker also ties with William Wyler for most nominations in that category, with a total of 13. And even some hugely commercially successful films, like Top Gun: Maverick, made the cut for the top award—an oft-remarked upon rarity.

There were comebacks to celebrate too, with former child actor Ke Huy Quan getting recognition in the Best Supporting Actor race for Everything Everywhere All at Once, and fan-favourite Brendan Fraser receiving his nod for lead actor for his role in The Whale.
