Here’s everything you need to know the oscars 2023, including when they are, where to watch the live show, and this year’s controversies.

Jimmy Kimmel will host for the third time and his first time since 2018. It was also the last Oscars with a solo presenter. The show went without a host for several years after Kimmel’s final appearance. Last year, Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes guested as a trio. In an ad for this year’s show Echoing “Top Gun: Maverick,” Kimmel modestly pleaded for being the right person for the job, noting that he couldn’t get a slap in the face because “I cry a lot.”

WHAT ELSE IS IN THE SHOW?
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has announced that the winners of each category will be announced live on the show. (Last year, a few categories were taped into a pre-show, causing an uproar among Academy members.) All signs point to a slew of musical performances Rihanna sings “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava sing Chandrabose and MM Keeravaanis “Naatu Naatu” from “RRR”. The nominee Lady Gaga, on the other hand, will not sing “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick” during the show. On Monday, the show’s producers announced that Lenny Kravitz will be providing the performance of “In Memoriam.”
WHO ARE THE FAVORITES?
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert Indie sci-fi hit “Everything Everywhere All at Once” comes in with a leading 11 nominations. Hot on their heels, however, is the dark comedy starring Irish friends “The Banshees of Inisherin”, with nine nods, a total consistent with the Netflix WWI film All Quiet on the Western Front. Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everywhere At Once”) might have a slight advantage Cate Blanchett (“Tar”) for best actress. Best actor is harder to name, with Brendan Fraser (“The Whale”) And Austin Butler (“Elvis”) in the mix. In the subcategories Angela Bassett (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) and Ke Huy Quan (“Everything Everywhere at Once”) are the front runners, although Jamie Lee Curtis’ win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards may have thrown a wrench in the supporting actress category. Steven Spielberg (“The Fabelmans”) could win his third-best director Oscar, although the Daniels may have emerged as the front-runner. AP film writers Lindsey Bahr and Jake Coyle are predicts big loot for “everything everywhere at once”.
WHAT WAS CONTROVERSIAL THIS YEAR?
Apart from the usual snubs and surprises, was the biggest task of this year the debate over Andrea Riseborough’s unexpected nomination for Best Actress. Riseborough was nominated for the little-seen Texas drama To Leslie after many A-list stars rallied around her performance. When two other best actress contenders – Danielle Deadwyler (“Till”) and Viola Davis (“Woman King”) – were snubbed, Some saw this as the racial bias in the film industry. The Academy launched an investigation into the star-studded grassroots campaign for Riseborough but found no reason to withdraw her nomination.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR?
Just reading the title one of this year’s short film nominees should trigger a wave of giggles. John Williams (“The Fabelmans”), running for top score, is the oldest contestant ever at 90 years old. After historic back-to-back Best Director wins Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland”) And Jane Campion (“The Power of the Dog”), no women were nominated for best director that year. Don’t expect to see Will Smith at the Oscars anytime soon, either. After beating Chris Rock at last year’s ceremony, Smith was Banned from studying by the film academy for 10 years. In a live Netflix special on Saturday Rock eventually hit Smith back with a smashing stand-up set about the incident.
