A few very pleasant surprises, as announced by brilliant Allison Williams and Riz Ahmed.

It's that time of year again, movie lovers! The time when Hollywood pats itself on the back and hands out shiny little statues to a select few of its elite members. And without further ado, here is the 2023 Oscar Nominations Full List. Are you ready?

Leading the pack, we have the highly-anticipated return of Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick and James Cameron's latest blockbuster, Avatar: The Way of Water. But let's not forget about the indie darlings, such as Everything Everywhere All at Once and TÁR, and the late-breaking international drama, All Quiet on the Western Front.

As always, there are bound to be some snubs and surprises in the list. Fans of Brendan Fraser were thrilled to see him finally getting recognition for his role in The Whale, and Michelle Yeoh fans were downright gleeful seeing her getting a coveted nomination for Everything Everywhere All at Once, while others were left scratching their heads at the omission of their favorite films and actors.

The ceremony will be hosted by none other than Jimmy Kimmel, who is making his comeback after previously emceeing the 2017 and 2018 ceremonies. Academy CEO Bill Kramer teased, "It's going to be a return to a show that's about a love of cinema, international cinema, diverse artists."

But let's be real, it's mostly going to be about celebrities giving speeches and trying not to trip on their way to the stage – and us, hoping this year nobody gets slapped in the face.

Mark your calendars, folks. The 95th Academy Awards will air on Sunday, March 12th at 8 p.m. ET or 5 p.m. PT on ABC.
