New York – Big-screen spectacle is taking over the nominations for the 95th Academy Awards on Tuesday, one year after the streaming service first took home Hollywood’s highest honor.
Nominations will be announced at 8:30 a.m. ET from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California. They will be broadcast live on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and live on Oscars.org, Oscars.com, and several of the Academy’s social media platforms. Riz Ahmed (“Sound of Metal”) and Allison Williams (“M3gan”) will read the nominees.
If all goes as expected, Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: Path of Water, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Elvis could all be 6-9 nominations. If last year’s Oscars were dominated by streaming (Apple TV+’s “CODA” won Best Picture and Netflix was nominated for his 27), which films drew moviegoers to the multiplex? , make up many of this year’s top contenders.
This includes the A24 sci-fi indie hit “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan’s Multiverse Skip story could grab the most nominations Tuesday, including Michelle Yeoh and Comeback Kid’s Ke He Hui Kuan.
Also at the forefront of the pack is ‘Inisherin’s Banshees,’ Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy set in Ireland, earning up to four acting nods, including nominations for Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson It’s a schedule.
Steven Spielberg’s Favermans struggled to win over audiences, but the director’s autobiographical coming-of-age story earned Spielberg his 20th Academy Award nomination and his eighth Best Director nomination. It’s a schedule. His longtime composer John Williams should break his living record for most Oscar nominations. Another nod to his Best score makes Williams his 53rd nomination, trailing Walt Disney’s his 59th.
However, many questions remain, such as whether the love for “Top Gun: Maverick” will spread enough to earn Tom Cruise a Best Actor nomination. It’s unclear whether James Cameron will be in the best directing category, but this year’s other highest-grossing blockbuster, Avatar: Path of Water, should do well in the technical department. Female filmmakers continue to win, including 2021’s Chloe Zhao (“Nomadland”) and last year’s Jane Her Campion (“Dog Power”).
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the best of blockbuster cinematic disciplines. Ratings for telecasts are usually higher year after year, with popular movies being favourites. Last year’s awards ceremony looked like a comeback his edition of the Oscars before “slap” came to define the ceremony. The Academy then banned Will Smith from attending for the next ten years. He could have still been nominated, but Smith’s performance as the runaway slave in “Liberation” didn’t pan out.
According to Nielsen, last year’s broadcast attracted 15.4 million viewers, a 56% increase from the record-low audience of 10.5 million for the pandemic-damaged 2021 TV broadcast. This year, ABC will bring back Jimmy Kimmel to host his March 12 ceremony.
But bigger concerns swirl in the movie industry. Last year saw a flash of triumphant comeback in theaters after a two-year pandemic, much like the success of Top Gun: Maverick. However, ticket sales this year have only recovered about 70% of their pre-pandemic business, partly due to the reduced stability of his releases at Majors. Regal Cinema, his second-largest chain in the United States, announced the closure of 39 movie theaters this month.
At the same time, storm clouds have swept over the streaming world after years of endless growth. Stocks plummeted as Wall Street turned to streaming services to not only attract more subscribers, but to make money. The contraction continued as the industry once again entered an uncertain chapter.
In stark contrast to last year’s Academy Awards, there may not be a streaming title competing for the Oscar’s most popular award this year. Instead, Netflix’s best shots are offered in other categories. In particular, the animated film favorite “Guillermo del Pinocchio on his Toro” and the German submission “The Serenity on the Western Front” are noted.
