The race is on. Nominations for the upcoming Oscars ceremony have at long last been unleashed, and it’s a very close call. Honouring the best and brightest talent in the film industry over the past year, there’s plenty of material to work with. Everything Everywhere All At Once in particular had everyone in their feelings, so much so that it dominates with a whopping 11 nominations. Others, like Elvis brought about the same crazed mania that the musician himself faced — with a slew of nominations to prove it. Either way, we’ll dish the details of all we know to tide us over until March 12th

Head below for more…

Ah, arguably the hottest contending category. It’s no stranger to controversy, with the 2018 Moonlight mishap forever ingrained in the collective consciousness. But, looking onwards — the competition is tight. Everything Everywhere All at Once snaps up one of its 11 nominations in this category, going head to head with Elvis, Triangle of Sadness, and the recently released Avatar: The Way of Water. It’s nice to see some variety in this category as a satire, two sci-fis, and biopic are all up for the prize.

Best actress

In the Best actress category, this isn’t Cate Blanchett’s first rodeo. Having won the title a couple years back, Blanchett is the only contender who’s snapped up the prize before – coming back to bite with Tár. Michelle Yeoh comes to represent Everything Everywhere All at Once, and Ana de Armas rises above the controversy with Blonde. It’s hard to say who’ll end up taking the crown, as all of these performances are as heartfelt as each other – so we’ll be waiting for the ceremony with anticipation.

Best actor is where things heat up – and we’ve got some major players fighting for the prize. Elvis snaps up another one of its nominations courtesy of frontman Austin Butler, while Brendan Fraser shows us how a comeback is done with his nomination for The Whale. Seasoned actor Colin Farrell slaps up yet another nod for The Banshees of Inisherin, while the internet’s boyfriend, Paul Mescal, delivered an applause-worthy performance in Aftersun. With such an accolade given to his second ever big project, steered by a first-time director, we tip our hats.

Best supporting actress

In the Best supporting actress category, there’s a wealth of Oscar-worthy performances. Angela Bassett carries the thread of her Golden Globe win with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, while Hong Chau comes to represent The Whale. Everything Everywhere All at Once is, once again, leaps and bounds ahead of the rest with both Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu garnering nods.

Best director

Triangle of Sadness dir. Ruben Östlund

Just like its ‘Best picture’ counterpart, this category is the nail-biting, finger-crossing fight for the prize. Ruben Östlund slaps up a nod for the wildly satirical Triangle of Sadness, while Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert are just showing off at this point with another nod for Everything Everywhere All at Once. Doubling up Cate Blanchett’s nomination Todd Field garners a nod for Tár, and seasoned director Steven Spielberg comes back to bite with The Fabelmans.
