Hollywood’s night of nights will return on March 12

It’s officially #AwardsSeason, and the 95th Academy Awards – The Oscars – are back and set to be bigger than ever before. The Oscars 2023 will be held at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 12, with the excitement building this week as the official nominations list has been revealed.

The top Oscars contenders this year include Elvis star Austin Butler, ‘The Whale’ star Brendan Fraser, Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan, respectively, for their performances in Everything Everywhere All at Once and Steven Spielberg’s drama, The Fabelmans.

Of course, it wouldn’t be ‘The Oscars’ without some form of drama unfolding, with many questioning why the Academy snubbed such films as The Batman for its clearly incredible cinematography, or Viola Davis for her powerful performance in The Woman King. Ana de Armas and the Academy are also facing backlash for the nomination of Blonde and de Armas as Leading Actress for her performance as Marilyn Monroe.
