More about the Oscars 2023 nominations

Everything Everywhere All at Once creates history

After becoming the highest-grossing A24 project and being named among the ten best films of 2022, the science-fiction adventure that follows Michelle Yeoh’s Evelyn Wang on her journey through a parallel world as she tries to save the multiverse leads the 2023 Oscars nomination list.

With her Best Actress nomination, Yeoh has become the first Asian actress to be nominated in this category.

Naatu Naatu from Indian film RRR gets a much-anticipated Oscar nod

RRR finally joins the esteemed group of Oscar-nominated Indian films such as Mother India, Salaam Bombay and Lagaan.

SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR has earned the much-expected nomination for best original song for “Naatu Naatu,” after their win at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards in the same category.

The Indian representation at the 2023 Oscars gets even bigger with Shaunak Sen’s acclaimed documentary film, All That Breathes, being nominated in the Documentary Feature Film category. The film has already won at the Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival.

Another Indian-made documentary The Elephant Whisperers will compete among notable nominees in the Best Documentary Short Film Category.

Other buzz-worthy nominations

In the major acting categories, Austin Butler, Brendan Fraser and Michelle Yeoh arrive as strong front-runners.

Brendan Fraser received his first-ever Oscar nomination, in the best actor category for The Whale.

Steven Spielberg remains the early favourite for his very personal drama, The Fabelmans. The autobiographical coming-of-age tale landed Spielberg his 20th Oscar nomination and eighth nod for best director.

Leading the sequel surge are Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water.
