A Brief History
On January 24, 2023, the nominations for the Academy Awards, better known as the “Oscars,” have been released! The big day of the awards ceremony will be March 12, 2023, and will honor those films released in 2022.
Some of our favorite major nominees include: All Quiet on the Western Front for Best Picture, Austin Butler in the title role of Elvis for Best Actor, and Michelle Yeoh for Best Actress in the frenetic Everything Everywhere All at Once. You can see trailers for each of these films below.
