OSCARS 2023-who will win (and who won)

OSCARS 2023 -95th Academy Awards Edition

Here's not who should win, anything from TheBanshees of Inisherin (my faved, see here my top films of 2022) to Elvis (both with 9 nods), not the puzzling Everything Everywhere All At Once (EEAAO), a very OK film but not so overhyped- 11 nominations??? !!! 

And it will win at least 6 awards for sure...(in th end it won Seven!!!)

No Fabelmans, no Triangle of Sadness, no Tar, no Top Gun; Maverick...

of course there can be surprises, as this is the Oscars, and there always are, I hope to be wrong ;)

Now this year I opened a VOYO account to watch live as they announced they will show them in original and dubbed separately. We'll see how this works...AND how did it work was it didn't. The show started at 2 am Ro time and half an hour later their broadcast didn't start. So I closed the account, shameful...luckily I got a link from a friend who faithfully watches them live, Thanks BM :)

BEST FILM: Everything Everywhere All At Once

DIRECTING: The Daniels (Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheiner) -Everything Everywhere All At Once

BEST ACTOR: Brendan Fraser -The Whale


SUPPORTING ACTOR: Ke Huy Huan-Everything Everywhere All At Once


ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: Martin McDonagh-The Banshees of Inisherin should've won but Everything Everywhere All At Once won WGA so it's EEAAO

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: Women Talking -Sarah Polley (also won WGA)

CINEMATOGRAPHY: Mandy Walker -Elvis (will be the 1st woman DOP winning for a feature film!!!), also won ASC award. (N.A. they gave it to newcomer James Friend for All Quiet...like there was something new that escaped (sir) Roger Deakins when he did 1917 and won his 2nd Oscar there)

EDITING: Elvis, and well Elvis has left the building...EEAAO won this one too...

PRODUCTION DESIGN: Elvis (N.A. All Quiet on the Western Front won)

COSTUME DESIGN: Elvis (Babylon should've won) and it went to Wakanda Forever...

So Black Panther was worthy for the second time???? Same costumes, same designer, another blank they pulled...

SOUND: Elvis vs. Top Gun: Maverick, and Top Gun it is!!!

VISUAL EFFECTS: Top Gun: Maverick (c'mon, wasn't an Avatar enough? can't believe they went with it...)


ORIGINAL SCORE: Carter Burwell -Banshees-could win, Justin Hurwitz -Babylon should win'

and ze Germans won...Volker Bertelman for All Quiet on the Western Front (really? :(, and you had John Williams there at 90 years of age and 53 nominations...

ORIGINAL SONG: they all spoke of “Naatu Naatu”  from RRR (which is on Netflix btw), seconded by Rihanna  with “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

RRR makes history as the first Bollywood song to win!!! Namaste!!!


ANIMATION: Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio  

FOREIGN (INTERNATIONAL) FILM: All Quiet on the Western Front

--------------------------------------------------------Im Westen nichts Neues----------------------------------------

nice entry on a par with Daniel Craig's London Olympics ;)

here's his entrance and opening monologue (see how long it stays on you tube...that Robert Blake joke was mean...:()

Honorary Oscars:

Euzhan Palcy (producer, director)

Diane Warren (muzician)

Peter Weir (director)

Michael J. Fox -humanitary award „Jean Hersholt”.

Un comentariu:

  1. You can't believe they went with Avatar? That was the surest bet of them all.
    And you can already pack an Oscar and send it to them for the third one too!
