Oscars 2023 Predictions: Actors, Directors, Films Expected To Win Big At The 95th Academy Awards english movie news – Usky News

“Everything Everywhere at Once,” a wacky sci-fi film featuring multiple universes, sex toys and hot dog fingers, entered Sunday’s Oscar ceremony as a highly unorthodox frontrunner for best picture.
Academy bosses hope viewers will tune in to see if the $100 million-grossing hit can claim Hollywood’s most coveted award — and a line under Will Smith’s infamous slap at last year’s gala Will pull

“Everything Everywhere” — which leads the overall nominations count at 11 — follows a Chinese immigrant laundromat owner locked in a fight with an inter-dimensional supervillain, who also happens to be his own daughter.
Michelle Yeoh’s heroine Evelyn must harness the power of her alter ego living in parallel universes, in which hot dogs are used as human fingers, talking rocks and giant dildos as weapons.

The film has dominated almost every award show in Hollywood, its charismatic, predominantly Asian star becoming the feel-good story of the season.

But although the quirky film is expected to dominate Oscar night, it could stumble for best picture.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences uses a special “preferential” voting system for that award, in which members rank films from best to worst.

If any rival could benefit, it’s probably “All Quiet on the Western Front,” the German-language World War I film that dominates Britain’s BAFTAs.

While there’s a clear favorite in the Best Picture race, the acting competitions are incredibly tight.

For best actress, Cate Blanchett was long favored to win a third Oscar for “Tar,” but “Everything Everywhere” love could propel Yeoh to a historic first win by an Asian woman in the category.

Best actor is a three-horse race between Austin Butler (“Elvis”), Brendan Fraser (“The Whale”) and Colin Farrell (“The Banshees of Inishrin”).

Angela Bassett, the first Marvel superhero actor nominated for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” is up against “Everything Everywhere” star Jamie Lee Curtis and “Banshee” actress Kerry Condon.

A category appears to be closed. The former child star of “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Goonies,” Kwan has won every Best Supporting Actor award and is almost certain to complete a comeback story for the ages.

Here are the early predictions:
