Oscar Nominations 2023 Predictions – Updated

The Oscar Nominations 2023 are out so it’s time for a little fun as I predict a few of the winners. I don’t like the Oscars as they seem completely disconnected to the movie loving audiences that pay them!

Nevertheless these are my predictions!!!

Update 13.03.2023: Well what do I know? I only correctly predict one out of the four main categories and that was Brendan Fraser (The Whale).

Best Picture

  • All Quiet on the Western Front
  • Avatar: The Way of Water
  • The Banshees of Inisherin
  • Elvis
  • Everything Everywhere All at OnceWinner
  • The Fabelmans
  • Tár
  • Top Gun: Maverick
  • Triangle of Sadness
  • Women Talking

Let’s be honest most of us would choose Top Gun: Maverick it’s highly entertaining and I loved it. However this is Hollywood so I think they will choose Tár.

Best Actress

  • Cate Blanchett – Tár
  • Ana de Armas – Blonde
  • Andrea Riseborough – To Leslie
  • Michelle Williams – The Fabelmans
  • Michelle Yeoh – Everything Everywhere All at Once – Winner

This one’s harder to call but I go for Michelle Williams in The Fabelmans.

Best Actor

  • Austin Butler – Elvis
  • Colin Farrell – The Banshees of Inisherin
  • Brendan Fraser – The Whale (Correctly Predicted)
  • Paul Mescal – Aftersun
  • Bill Nighy – Living

Hollywood likes to reward certain types of films so I think they will choose Brendan Fraser for The Whale.

Best Director

  • Martin McDonagh – The Banshees of Inisherin
  • Daniel Kwan, Daniel ScheinertWinner – Everything Everywhere All at Once
  • Steven Spielberg – The Fabelmans
  • Todd Field – Tár
  • Ruben Östlund – Triangle of Sadness

None of these really stand out to me but I think the Oscar for Best Director will go to Todd Field (Tár).

In any case we will find out the real winners on 12th March 2023 and see how many I got right!
