Oscars nominations 2023 – as it happened: Irish stars triumph with Paul Mescal and Colin Farrell up for Best Actor

Everything Everywhere All At Once leads the pack with the most Oscar nominations this year – but some surprises and snubs have certainly shaken things up.

The nominations were announced today (24 January), as awards season continues.

Among the surprise nominees this year is Paul Mescal who received a Best Actor nod for his role in the father-daughter drama Aftersun. He is nominated alongside Austin Butler, Brendan Fraser, Bill Nighy, and fellow Irish actor Colin Farrell.

It is a big year for Ireland, with Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon joining Mescal and Farrell in the list of nominees. The Banshees of Inisherin, An Irish Goodbye and A Quiet Girl all received nods this year.

Another shock came when Ana de Armas was nominated for Best Actress thanks to her role in the hugely polarising Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde, which The Independent gave one-star.

Riz Ahmed and Alison Williams hosted the announcement presentation from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, California.

The 95th Academy Awards will air live on ABC on Sunday (12 March) with Jimmy Kimmel returning as host for the third time.

Oscars shortlist

09:30 , Annabel Nugent

Today’s nominees won’t come as a total surprise. In December last year, a shortlist for the 95th Academy Awards was unveiled in 10 categories.

These categories include Documentary Feature Film, Documentary Short Film, International Feature Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Music (Original Score), Music (Original Song), Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, Sound, and Visual Effects.

95th Oscars Shortlists Announced for 10 Categories | A.frame

Shortlist for Best International Feature Film

09:50 , Annabel Nugent

With an increasing number of people watching international films, more eyes than ever will be on the International Feature Film category.

This is the shortlist for International Feature Film:

Argentina, Argentina, 1985Austria, CorsageBelgium, CloseCambodia, Return to SeoulDenmark, Holy SpiderFrance, Saint OmerGermany, All Quiet on the Western FrontIndia, Last Film ShowIreland, The Quiet GirlMexico, Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of TruthsMorocco, The Blue CaftanPakistan, JoylandPoland, EOSouth Korea, Decision to LeaveSweden, Cairo Conspiracy

Is this the year sequels dominate?

10:10 , Annabel Nugent

2023 could be the year that sequels dominate, with more follow-up films than ever before in contention for top prizes.

The contendors include Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

It’s also not impossible that Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery could also nab a nod.

Only eight sequels have been nominated for Best Picture before, including Toy Story 3 and Mad Max: Fury Road. Never before, however, has there been two in a single year.

Ana de Armas could be one of the biggest surprises

10:30 , Annabel Nugent

The Best Actress category is as crowded as ever.

It is probably safe to say that Cate Blanchett (Tár), Viola Davis (The Woman King), Danielle Deadwyler (Till), and Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once) will receive nominations this afternoon.

More surprising would be a nod for Ana de Armas for her controversial role as Marilyn Monroe in Blonde. Despite the film receiving mostly awful reviews, de Armas has managed to secure nominations at the Globes, SAG, and BAFTA awards.

I would speculate that that last nomination is between de Armas and Michelle Williams for her part in The Fablemans.

Best Picture will have 10 nominees – six appear to be locked

10:50 , Annabel Nugent

Of the 10 nominations available for Best Picture, we can predict at least six very likely films (below).

The Banshees of Inisherin

Elvis

Everything Everywhere All At Once

Tar

Top Gun: Maverick

The Fabelmans

This means that four spots are still up for grabs. Frontrunners to nab them including The Whale, Avatar: The Way of Water, Women Talking, the German-language war film All Quiet on the Western Front, and Palme d’Or winner Triangle of Sadness.

All the 2022 Oscar winners

11:10 , Annabel Nugent

Cast an eye back to last year. Last year’s 2022 ceremony is in danger of being remembered solely for Will Smith’s notorious Oscars slap.

Here are all the winners from last year’s Academy Awards, including Coda for Best Picture, Will Smith for Best Actor, and Jessica Chastain for Best Actress.

Last year may only be remembered for one thing – ahem, the Will Smith slap – but Ariana DeBose’s Best Supporting Actress for West Side Story win also made history.

What is ‘Women Talking'?

11:50 , Roisin O'Connor

One title in competition for Best Picture is Women Talking.

In comparison to the other frontrunner films, which include Tár and Elvis,Women Talking is unfamiliar to UK audiences.

Although the film had its US wide release on 20 January, UK viewers will have to wait until 10 February for Women Talking to hit cinemas.

Women Talking has a star-studded cast with Claire For, Jessie Buckley, Rooney Mara, and Frances McDormand all attached.

The film, directed by Sarah Polley, follows women in an isolated religios colony who encounter a crisis of faith after a series of sexual assaults.

Who gets an invite?

12:30 , Annabel Nugent

Every year, the Academy Awards brings in the most glitzy and glam guests – but how does one actually nab the toughest ticket in town?

The Dolby Theatre, which has hosted the ceremony since 2002, seats 3,400 people across four levels and 20 opera boxes.

Oscar nominees and presenters each receive a pair of tickets and can request an additional pair. Most, of course, do.

As per The LA Times, after nominees account for 800 tickets, blocks are then reserved for the show’s broadcast network (ABC), the telecast’s sponsors, the production team, the accountants, the legal team, media, academy museum donors and various dignitaries, such as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Movie studios too, will receive a group of tickets. According to the publication, indie studios have complained that major studios receive more than their fair share.

Remove the spots that have obstructed views (these are occupied by seat fillers) and there’s only a few hundred available seats left.

Members of the academy are invited to enter a ticket lottery, which is conducted the old-fashioned way: written on slips of paper and pulled out of a drum.

Who gets invited to the Oscars?

... The Razzies

12:50 , Annabel Nugent

There’s the Oscars, and then there’s the Razzies.

The Golden Raspberry Awards, a parody awards ceremony honouring the worst of the year’s cinema, has been going for 41 years.

Earlier this week, the Razzies attracted criticism for nominating 12-year-old actor Ryan Kiera Armstrong for worst performance.

“With Armstrong’s nomination for Firestarter, organisers need to be told that punching down is not the way to go,” writes The Independent’s Jacob Stolworthy. “Or, failing that, perhaps it’s time to burn the whole idea to the ground.”

The Razzies have hit a tacky new low with its 2023 nomination list

47 brilliant films that didn’t receive a single Oscar nomination

13:10 , Annabel Nugent

While there’s no doubt that an Oscar is a prestigious accolade, the gold statuette doesn’t automatically make a film good.

Just take a look at all the spectacular films, including American Psycho, The Big Lebowski, and In the Mood for Love, that were somehow overlooked by the Academy.

Will Smith is banned from any Academy events for the next 10 years

13:15 , Annabel Nugent

Will Smith is one star who will definitely not be in attendance at the awards cermony in March.

In April last year, it was announced that the actor received a 10-year ban from the Oscars gala and any Academy events.

A board of governors decided to impose the ban after Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars last March.

Despite bombing at the box office, Babylon could still be in for a shot at this year’s Oscars.

Damien Chazelle’s old Hollywood bacchanal recouped less than half of its budget. Likewise, The Fabelmans, another Oscar contender, represents one of the biggest bombs of Steven Spielberg’s illustrious career.

Will there be any women-directed movies nominated for Best Picture?

13:23 , Annabel Nugent

With any Oscars nominations comes disappointments and upsets.

This year, it’s looking like no films directed by women will be nominated for Best Picture – that is unless Women Talking manages to snag a nod.

‘The Quiet Girl' makes history with Oscar nomination

14:42 , Annabel Nugent

The Quiet Girl (An Cailin Ciuin) makes history as the first Irish feature film to receive a nomination in the Best International Feature Film category.

Last week, the film was nominated for two Bafta awards.

What is ‘Women Talking’ and when will it be released in the UK?

14:50 , Annabel Nugent

Among this year’s nominees is Women Talking.

Compared to the other films announced this afternoon, such as Avatar: The Way of Water and Top Gun: Maverick, Sarah Polley’s drama is little known – at least to UK audiences.

Women Talking is yet to be released in the UK, with the film hitting cinemas on 10 February.

It stars Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, and Frances McDormand in a story about women living within an isolated religious colony, which is rocked by a series of sexual assaults.

Where are the nods for ‘The Woman King’?

15:07 , Annabel Nugent

Among this year’s biggest upsets is The Woman King, which walked away with no nominations this year.

The critically acclaimed action-drama film was considered a frontrunner in many categories.

Viola Davis, who was thought to be a sure thing in the Best Actress category, was also shut out.

Another film notably lacking in nominations is Till.

The historical drama tells the true story of Mamie Till-Mobley as she pursues justice for her 14-year-old son Emmett who was lynched in 1955 in Mississippi.

Danielle Deadwyler was considered one of the frontrunners for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Both she and Viola Davis (The Woman King), however, were shut out of the category.
