Nominations will be announced from the academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California. They were broadcast live on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and streamed live on Oscars.org, Oscars.com, and on several of the academy’s social media platforms.
If last year’s Oscars were dominated by streaming — Apple TV+’s “CODA” won the Best Picture award and Netflix was nominated for 27 — movies that drew moviegoers to movie theaters make up many of this year’s top contenders.
That includes “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” A24’s sci-fi indie hit. Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan’s multiverse-skipping story could walk away with the most nominations on Tuesday, including nods to Michelle Yeoh and comeback kid Ke Huy Quan.
Also at the forefront of the pack is ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’, Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy set in Ireland that will score a whopping four acting nominations, including nominations for Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.
Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” struggled to catch on with audiences, but the director’s autobiographical coming-of-age story will earn Spielberg his 20th Oscar nomination and eighth Best Director nomination. John Williams, his longtime composer, extended his record for most Oscar nominations for a living person. Another Best Score nomination earns Williams his 53rd nomination, a tally surpassing only Walt Disney’s 59.
Last year’s broadcast attracted 15.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen, 56% more than the record low of 10.5 million viewers for the pandemic-ravaged 2021 broadcast. March, one that will surely be seen as a return to the scene of the blow.
But bigger concerns are swirling around the movie business. Last year saw flashes of triumphant resurrection for theaters, such as the success of “Top Gun: Maverick,” after a two-year pandemic. But due in part to a less steady stream of major releases, ticket sales for the year only recovered about 70% of pre-pandemic sales. Regal Cinemas, the country’s second largest chain, announced the closure of 39 cinemas this month.
At the same time, storm clouds swept into the streaming world after years of seemingly limitless growth. Stocks plummeted as Wall Street looked to streaming services to make a profit, not just add subscribers. A retrenchment followed as the industry enters another uncertain chapter.
In stark contrast to last year’s Academy Awards, there may not be any streaming titles vying for the Oscars’ most-sought-after award this year – though the final spots in the Best Picture of 10-Movie field are still up for grabs. Netflix’s best shots instead come in other categories, most notably with animated film favorite “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio” and the German entry, “All Quiet on the Western Front.”
