Oscar Nominations 2023: How to Watch the Live Announcement
Written by on January 24, 2023
All of your burning awards-season questions are about to be answered. The Oscar nominations 2023 are imminent, and while Vanity Fair has already made its foolproof Oscar nomination predictions, the Academy will officially weigh in on Tuesday, January 24. Watch the nominations announcement below:
The 95th Academy Award nominations are set to be announced by Oscar winner Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams will host the nominations announcement live from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater at 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT. Contenders in all 23 categories will be revealed—the first batch, including supporting acting and screenplay categories, followed by the second round roughly 10 minutes later. The second announcement will unveil the 2023 Oscars top categories, including leading acting, directing, and best picture.
This announcement will be available via global livestream on Oscar.com, Oscars.org and the Academy’s digital social platforms (TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook), as well as on broadcast and streaming platforms such as ABC’s Good Morning America, ABC News Live, and Disney+.
Mysteries abound. Will Andrea Riseborough’s eleventh hour grassroots campaign for the intimate indie To Leslie yield her a slot in the best-actress category? Could Michelle Williams pull a Kate Winslet by sneaking into the supporting category for The Fabelmans, although her performance has been nominated as a lead all season long? And should Everything Everywhere All at Once prepare for a field-leading haul?
What has been decided is the host for this year’s telecast. Jimmy Kimmel will host the Academy Awards for a third time. He was the emcee in 2017, the year that La La Land was mistakenly announced as the best-picture winner over Moonlight, and returned to smooth things over—and poke some fun at the gaffe—the following year. Kimmel’s third stint comes a full year after Will Smith’s Oscars slap of Chris Rock, and the late-night host has made it clear he’ll address the incident.
“It’s got to come up in some way,” he told Extra last November. “You know, I don’t want to really make light of it necessarily, because to comedians [it wasn’t light]. You know, comedians are mad about it…It’s one of those things that for a group of people that find everything funny, it’s, like, not funny, you know? But of course, you have to [address it]. Just like when they read the wrong winner one year when I hosted the Oscars, we had to make mention of that the next year.”
Kimmel previously told Howard Stern that unlike last year’s trio of hosts—Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, and Regina Hall, he “would’ve went right out onstage because somebody needed to go out there at that time,” adding, “And I think that was one of the drawbacks of having three hosts, it wasn’t clear who should go out there and go handle it.” When the Academy announced Kimmel, he said in a statement: “Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap. Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no.”
