The nominations for the 95th Oscars were announced today, January 24, 2023, by actors Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid. The event was live-streamed online and broadcast on TV.

Oppenheimer led the way with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11 nominations, Killers of the Flower Moon with 10, and popular favorite Barbie with 8. All four were nominated for Best Picture. There would have been riots in front of the Academy Museum if Barbie hadn't gotten nominated for Best Picture, but it does seem a shame that Greta Gerwig was not nominated for Best Director and a bit of a vindication of the point of Barbie that Ryan Gosling was nominated for his role while Margot Robbie was snubbed for hers.

Overall, there weren't too many surprises here. Serious movies got the most nominations. Popularity with audiences has never translated into a sure-thing Oscar win. While that can be the way it should be in some situations, it makes the Academy appear a little tone-deaf when the omissions are obvious. Still, there are some great movies that have been recognized and as a result, hopefully they will be seen by more people.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is home to a global membership of more than 10,500 of accomplished film industry artists and leaders. Academy members from each of the 18 branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories (actors nominate actors, etc.) In the Animated Feature Film, International Feature Film and Live Action Short Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees.

Voting for the winners in all 23 categories begins February 22, 2024 and extends through February 27, 2024. The 96th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the Dolby® Theatre at Ovation Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC.
