The 2023 Oscars did not give these awards to hot dog fingers. It’s possible to save some time to figure out the likelihood that “Everything Everywhere All at Once” will take home the majority of awards at the Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony and leave it at that.
The wildly creative and emotional adventure that is “EEAAO” could wind up winning the Oscars for best film and best director and best actor for Daniels (Daniel Kwan as well as Daniel Scheinert), best actress for the famous Michelle Yeoh, best supporting actor for Ke Huy Quan and the best actress supporting Jamie Lee Curtis or Stephanie Hsu.
There’s no doubt that there will be some excitement regarding this year’s broadcast which is broadcast in real-time at 8:00 pm on ABC at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
What about who’s going to be the most memorable announcement? What number of “teams” will be thanked in acceptance speeches? What joke by presenter Jimmy Kimmel will lead the estimated 7,256 recaps online available on Monday morning? Most importantly how often are the Slap be referenced in a humorous or serious manner prior to the time that even the night (or at the very least, the first 3 minutes in Kimmel’s monologue) is done.
Why delay until the distribution to the statuettes before you can begin the celebrations? To get you ready for the annual self-congratulations celebrations in Hollywood Here are some highly-rated bonuses that Oscar missed.
2023 Oscars: The most ineffective attempt to improve the quality of an awards show
The Oscar for not being able to bring the show down to a size that is manageable or even to sustain momentum during the lengthy, three-hour march to the top picture, is attributed back to the last 10-15 years in actual Oscar broadcasts. There must be a better method to make things more exciting than this year’s idea of switching the red carpet to champagne-colored ones.
2023 Oscars: The best drama that is completely unrelated to the film
“Don’t Worry Darling,” for bringing out the tension between filmmaker Olivia Wilde and star Florence Pugh as well as an off-camera (when the paparazzi weren’t there) relationship with Wilde as well as Pugh’s fellow co-star Harry Styles, that segues into a tense split between Wilde and her husband Jason Sudeikis as well as a completely strange spitting scandal between Styles and another movie star, Chris Pine, at the Venice Film Festival. I’m curious if anyone seen the film? No?
2023 Oscars: The best performance of Nicolas Cage … as Nicolas Cage
The action icon’s role as a perhaps even more eccentric character as a character in “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” was one of the greatest joys of 2022. Having Pedro Pascal as his unlikely billionaire friend was the perfect topping to the acting (on basis) the sundae. Light comedies aren’t often given nominations, a problem that Oscar isn’t able to solve.
2023 Oscars: The most obvious omissions from the top actress competition
To take a line from Ariana DeBose’s viral rap during the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, “Angela Bassett did the thingand Viola Davis? My lady is king.” But , even though Bassett was awarded a best supporting actress nod in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” what happened to the top actress nomination that seemed to be a obvious choice to “The Woman King” star Davis? What about Danielle Deadwyler’s incredibly touching, yet completely overlooked role on “Till” (of which DeBose sang, “Danielle D., you broke my heart”)? There are times when Oscar the voters seem to be off-base with the kind of work that deserves to be recognized.
2023 Oscars: The best rendition of Elon Musk
Ed Norton’s performance in the role of over-the-top Tech businessman Miles Bron in “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.”
2023 Oscars: The worst (and the best) name-related garble
The moment that Mark Wahlberg mistakenly identified Sarah Poliley’s Oscar-nominated film in the form of “Women Are Talking” at the SAG Awards, it’s a surprise that the web did not crash from the flurry of emojis with eye rolls that followed.
However, the mistake had positive effects of bringing the attention of “Women Talking” and Polley took a veiled poke at the award ceremony. Robert Altman Award at the Independent Spirit Awards. “I can’t tell you what it means to us to be up here being recognized in this way for this film, ‘Women Are Talking,’ I mean ‘Women Talking,'” she laughed. “Sorry, Marky Mark gets in my head.”
2023 Oscars: The best farm animals
Jenny acts as the Padriac’s (Colin Farrell) emotional support donkey, in the best movie nominee “The Banshees of Inisherin,” as well as the circus-born donkey from “EO,” which is nominated as the best foreign feature. Should “Banshees” wins best original screenplay, it might be due to the dialogue of Padriac: “I am not putting me donkey outside when I’m sad, OK?”
2023 Oscars: The most unreliable military figure
Jon Hamm is great. Jon Hamm was perfect for the TV show “Mad Men” and last year’s hilarious “Confess, Fletch.” However, in the event that Jon Hamm shows up as Vice Admiral Beau (Cyclone) Simpson in “Top Gun: Maverick,” you’ve always been searching to find Flo from Progressive isn’t it?
2023 Oscars: Most likely to spark an influx of doctoral theses
All you film teachers and film professors, for a couple of years of detailed analysis of student essays on the true meaning of “Tar,” the most mysterious of the top film nominations (and the truth is it’s more opaque than “EEAAO”). It’s good to know that people not in graduate school are able to take in Cate Blanchett’s impressive performance as a conductor of orchestras without having to dissect it to determine whether the character is actually experiencing or simply imagining events that are unfolding.
2023 Oscars: Biggest superstar snub
Tom Cruise, who received high appreciation on his part for his performance in “Top Gun: Maverick” and whose sequel was a top contender for the 2022 box office domestic takings by more than $718 million. The film’s director Steven Spielberg was captured on video, he told Cruise at the annual Oscar awards luncheon “You saved Hollywood’s ass and you might have saved theatrical distribution.”
2023 Oscars: Best argument for shorter films
Steven Spielberg’s intimate sometimes epic, but often wandering “The Fabelmans” is a great portrayal of family dynamics. It could have been a hit with the final about 20 mins or less removed from its 2 1/2-hour running duration.
It’s been a long time since we’ve had a win.
Diane Warren, who, with her most popular song nomination “Applause” from “Tell It Like a Woman,” has been a 14-time contestant to be the gold medalist but has never won. Be encouraged you, Diane. Warren. Susan Lucci finally won a Daytime Emmy after 19 nods.
Best argument against letting Tom Hanks play the bad guy
His portrayal of his character, Colonel Tom Parker in “Elvis” has drawn viewers away from Austin Butler’s amazing transformation into Presley and towards Hanks his unconvincing transformation into an opportunist with a strong Dutch accent.
2023 Oscars: The most terrifying version of the Detroit house rental
“The Motor City,” set in “Barbarian,” of which Variety said that the dread the director Zach Cregger as “the stuff that the very best horror movies are made of.”
