Oscars 2023: all the latest from film’s biggest awards show

After a year in which Apple took home the big award with its Best Picture winner, CODA, the Oscars are back — and there’s quite a bit of excitement. Part of that has to do with the list of nominees. This year, Best Picture could go to fan-favorite Everything Everywhere All At Once, more subtle fare like Tár or Banshees of Inisherin, or maybe even a blockbuster like Avatar: The Way of Water or Top Gun: Maverick. The field feels pretty wide open.

When it comes to the big streaming services, Netflix once again racked up a bunch of nominations (16 in total) for the likes of All Quiet on the Western Front, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio. Apple managed a pair of nominations (for Causeway and the short film The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse), while the massive conglomerate known as Disney had a whopping 22, led by Avatar and Banshees.

There’s a lot of intrigue over who will win what — and you can follow along with all of the latest right here.

  • Jazz hands are out; hot dog hands are in.

    Best Supporting Actress nominee Stephanie Hsu might not have won at this year’s Oscars for her performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. But she, and David Byrne, and David Byrne’s pair of hot dog fingers absolutely brought the house down with their performance of ‘This Is a Life.’

  • We interrupt this awards ceremony for a movie trailer.

    The Oscars are primarily about awards, of course, but this year we also got a fresh glimpse at Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid — which includes a good look at Melissa MccArthy as Ursula.

  • Crocs alert.

    While presenting the award for best documentary (Navalny was the winner), Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson had what I believe is an Oscars first by wearing a pair of Crocs on stage. Who says fashion can’t be comfortable?

  • “Mom, I just won an Oscar.”

    The feel-good moment of the night might’ve happened near the beginning, when Ke Huy Quan nabbed the best supporting actor award for his performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. After nearly giving up on the world of acting, seeing him on stage with that trophy was a real tear-jerker.

    “Animation is cinema.”

    Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio took home the Oscar for best animated picture, and — as you can probably guess — the director had some strong words about the power of animated films, saying, simply that “animation is cinema, animation is not a genre, and animation is ready to be taken to the next step.”
