The 2023 Oscars, also known as the 95th Academy Awards, is the final stop in awards season as the best films of 2022 will be honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). Despite declining ratings over the years, the Oscars remain the most prestigious awards show in Hollywood. Winning an Oscar is still considered the highest honor a creative could win for a film.
The Oscars are more than just a three-hour ceremony. It’s an event that begins well before the telecast with a pre-show and red carpet. The Oscars are Hollywood’s version of the Super Bowl, as cinephiles and pop culture enthusiasts tune in for the entire day’s festivities. Below you’ll find information about the 2023 Oscars.

2023 Oscar nominations
Who will go home with the night’s top prize, Best Picture? With wins at the SAGs, Golden Globes, and Critics’ Choice, Everything Everywhere All at Once is the heavy favorite. EEAAO became the fifth film (first since 2012’s Argo) to sweep the four major guild awards (DGA, PGA, SAG, and WGA).
The three films in the best position to upset EEAAO are The Banshees of Inisherin, All Quiet on the Western Front, and Top Gun Maverick. Banshees and All Quiet are tied for second with nine nominations behind EEAAO‘s 11. All Quiet is one to pay close attention to, especially after its BAFA win for Best Film.
