Previewing the 95th Academy Awards: Top Nominations, Predictions, and Expectations

The 95th Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, is set to take place at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California. It will be broadcast live on ABC on Sunday, and the host will be Jimmy Kimmel. The event is a celebration of the best films, actors, actresses, and other professionals in the movie industry. The awards ceremony attracts the attention of millions of people around the world, making it one of the most prestigious events in the entertainment industry.

Top Nominated Movies

One of the most talked-about films leading up to the Oscars is “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” a science fiction movie from the filmmaking duo of Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The movie received a total of 11 nominations, including Best Picture. “The Banshees of Inisherin” by Martin McDonagh and “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Edward Berger received nine nominations each.

The Best Picture race is highly competitive, with 10 movies in the running. Apart from the three aforementioned films, “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Elvis,” “The Fabelmans,” “Tár,” “Top Gun:Maverick,” “Triangle of Sadness,” and “Women Talking” are all competing for the top prize. The winner of this category is one of the most anticipated outcomes of the evening.

Best Actor and Actress Categories

The Best Actor category is made up entirely of first-time nominees for the first time since 1935. Austin Butler for “Elvis,” Colin Farrell for “The Banshees of Inisherin,” Brendan Fraser for “The Whale,” Paul Mescal for “Aftersun,” and Bill Nighy for “Living” are all competing for the award. The winner of this category will be a first-time Oscar recipient.

The Best Actress category is equally competitive, with Cate Blanchett for “Tár,” Ana de Armas for “Blonde,” Andrea Riseborough for “To Leslie,” Michelle Williams for “The Fabelmans,” and Michelle Yeoh for “Everything Everywhere All at Once” all vying for the coveted award. Kyle Buchanan, an awards-season columnist for The New York Times, predicts that the race for Best Actress will come down to either Blanchett, a two-time Oscar winner, or Yeoh, a first-time nominee.

Predictions and Expectations

Although “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is the favorite to win Best Picture, there is always the possibility of an upset. “All Quiet on the Western Front” has also been receiving a lot of buzz leading up to the Oscars, making it a strong contender. It is important to note that nothing is certain when it comes to the Oscars, as unexpected winners have been known to emerge in the past.

One thing that viewers can expect is Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue, which is likely to include a joke about the infamous incident at the previous year’s ceremony when La La Land was mistakenly announced as the winner of Best Picture instead of Moonlight.


The Oscars is a highly anticipated event in the entertainment industry, with millions of people around the world tuning in to watch their favorite stars walk the red carpet and to see who will take home the coveted awards. This year’s ceremony is expected to be highly competitive, with many talented actors, actresses, and filmmakers vying for the top prizes. Regardless of who takes home the awards, the Oscars will be an unforgettable evening for all involved.
