Awards Spotlight: Final 2023 Oscar Nomination Predictions

Well, the time has come for a new round of Oscar nominations to be revealed. On January 24th, AMPAS will unveil its 95th Academy Awards nominations. The nominations will be announced by Oscar winner Riz Ahmed (The Sound of Metal, The Long Goodbye) and Allison Williams (Get Out, M3GAN). You can watch the nominations on the Academy's YouTube page, where they will do a live-stream event. The Oscars will be held on March 12th on ABC and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.


It has been a while since I have written about the Oscars, but what better way to start the year than going all in on my predictions? Nearly 9,600 members will pick their favorites and let us know if we are in a year where the blockbuster is in contention for the most significant award of the night - Best Picture. It has been a few weeks and months since the consensus behind seven films has solidified for the Best Picture lineup, but who is the next in line? Are we in for some surprises? And what will happen in other races like acting, screenplay, and techs?


I am expecting nominations to bring in excellent news for movies like “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” “Top Gun Maverick,” “Banshees of Inisherin,” and others. But who will lead? What will be the biggest shock, snub, and surprise of the day? Honestly, I have no idea, but after days of agonizing over who will get in, I have made my final Oscar nomination predictions. I feel confident in many of these, but I also feel the heartburn over so many others, just like Sgt Schultz (Hogan Heroe’s reference) famously said, “I know Nothing.”
