Zoë’s Final 2023 Academy Awards Nomination Predictions

Well, here we are. In less than a week, the Oscar nominations we’ve been predicting since the start of the fall (or for some, since the end of last year’s awards season) will finally be announced, and we’ll head into Phase 2 of the 2022-2023 awards season, where all these nominees duke it out to actually take home the trophies in question. At this point, several categories seem to be solidifying, and it’s clear that Best Picture is primarily between Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Banshees of Inisherin (the only two films to receive Best Picture nominations at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, PGA, and BAFTA and earn SAG Ensemble nods and DGA nods), but there are still a few “fifth spots” for us to discuss and debate (especially in some of these acting categories), and the BAFTA nominations have shaken things up a bit too, cementing All Quiet on the Western Front and – to a slightly lesser extent – Triangle of Sadness as bonafide contenders. But enough casual chitchat. We’ve been doing this dance all year long and you already know what’s been revealed so far, so let me just get right into it and show ya what I’ve got for my final 2023 Academy Awards nomination predictions.


Michelle Yeoh in Everything Everywhere All at Once

All Quiet on the Western Front

Avatar: The Way of Water

The Banshees of Inisherin


Everything Everywhere All at Once

The Fabelmans


Top Gun: Maverick

Triangle of Sadness

The Whale


NOTE: I’d say six films are pretty much “locked” here (Everything Everywhere All at OnceThe Banshees of InisherinTop Gun: MaverickElvisThe Fabelmans, and TÁR) due to the fact that they all showed up at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, PGA, and on the BAFTA longlist, and I still feel comfortable throwing Avatar in at #7 because of its strong tech support, though its dwindling nominations do make you do a double take. Next, it’s clear with All Quiet‘s BAFTA nomination haul (it led nominations, in fact) that it probably has enough international support to crack this top ten, and I’ll throw The Whale in after that, buoyed by two potential acting nods and a screenplay nomination (plus that surprise PGA nod). A lot of us probably have the same top nine – spot #10 is what’ll split us. I mulled over a NGNG pick for RRR (maybe it’s Selma 2.0, only earning noms for Picture and Original Song and winning the latter?), but I settled on Triangle of Sadness, thanks to its strong showing at the BAFTAs (like All Quiet‘s, though much less dominant) and its ability to nab two crucial nominations from two of the biggest branches, as you’ll see below.


The Daniels

Edward Berger – All Quiet on the Western Front

Todd Field – TÁR

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Martin McDonagh – The Banshees of Inisherin

Steven Spielberg – The Fabelmans

ALT: Park Chan-wook – Decision to Leave

NOTE: A good rule of thumb for predicting Best Director is – as many of you know – choose four of the five DGA nominees, and sub an international contender in for the one you drop. Daniels and McDonagh have shown up everywhere this season, so they stay. Next, I’ll retain Spielberg, even if his film is slipping – I suspect he’s still too respected to miss completely, though stranger things have happened here. And Todd Field’s ability to make it into both DGA and BAFTA should secure him a spot too. So that means Top Gun‘s Joseph Kosinski – the most populist contender of the DGA nominees – is on the outside looking in, and in his place, I’m putting BAFTA nominee Edward Berger, a – you guessed it – international contender who helmed a potential Best Picture nominee, All Quiet on the Western Front. He’s not a “name,” so maybe that leaves an opening for fellow BAFTA nominee Park Chan-wook, but I think All Quiet could be big enough to push him through anyway.


Austin Butler in Elvis

Austin Butler – Elvis

Colin Farrell – The Banshees of Inisherin

Brendan Fraser – The Whale

Paul Mescal – Aftersun

Bill Nighy – Living

ALT: Tom Cruise – Top Gun: Maverick

NOTE: Austin Butler, Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, and Bill Nighy made it in at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, SAG, and BAFTA, so I have to say they’re safe, especially in such a sparse field. That fifth spot has been tough to nail all season, but I don’t buy – and haven’t for awhile – the likes of Tom Cruise or Hugh Jackman (and Adam Sandler’s SAG nod seems like a red herring too). I’m going with BAFTA nominee Paul Mescal, who will be Aftersun‘s lone Oscar recognition.


Michelle Yeoh in Everything Everywhere All at Once

Cate Blanchett – TÁR

Viola Davis – The Woman King

Ana de Armas – Blonde

Danielle Deadwyler – Till

Michelle Yeoh – Everything Everywhere All at Once

ALT: Andrea Riseborough – To Leslie

NOTE: Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, and Michelle Yeoh made it in at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, SAG, and BAFTA, so conventional wisdom says they’re the top three. I’ve been back-and-forth on Davis the past few weeks as her film faltered with the guilds, but she’s been such a star on the campaign trail and has such a strong narrative with this film in particular (for how long she’s fought to get it made, and how revolutionary a role this is) that I suspect her support from her peers will be potent enough in the end. Next, I do have to throw in Golden Globes/SAG/BAFTA nominee Ana de Armas, and then in fifth, instead of slotting in The Fabelmans‘ Michelle Williams (the star of a film that’s stumbling and a contender who already hasn’t shown up at SAG or BAFTA), I’ll put SAG/BAFTA nominee Danielle Deadwyler, as I think she has far more individual passion – and Williams’ category confusion won’t help her. In fact, she’s not even my alt. That’d be To Leslie‘s Andrea Riseborough, who has been the talk of the town this past week following a last minute grassroots awards campaign. I’m still not sure it was enough to get her in, but it’d be a fascinating thing to see. (And I’m aware this is the SAG five, but we usually do get one and/or sometimes two categories that transfer over, so I feel comfortable biting the bullet here).


Ke Huy Quan in Everything Everywhere All at Once

Paul Dano – The Fabelmans

Brendan Gleeson – The Banshees of Inisherin

Barry Keoghan – The Banshees of Inisherin

Ke Huy Quan – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Eddie Redmayne – The Good Nurse

ALT: Judd Hirsch – The Fabelmans

NOTE: Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan, and Ke Huy Quan – the three contenders who hit GG/CC/SAG/BAFTA – are all in, and Quan is winning in a walk. Beyond those three, there are a lot of possibilities, but once again, I’ll play it safe and stick with the SAG five. I wasn’t intending to keep Eddie Redmayne – assuming he was this year’s Jared Leto and Ben Affleck who would falter after being a lone nominee for his film at both GG and SAG – but after he showed up at BAFTA too, I feel like that’s… telling? And I’ve been back-and-forth on Paul Dano all season, but that SAG nod (a ceremony where many, including yours truly, counted him out) feels significant. Maybe he’s replaced by Judd Hirsch in the end in a “Judi Dench > Caitríona Balfe” switcharoo, but I think there also could be enough of an urge to finally give him his first nomination.


Angela Bassett in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Angela Bassett – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Hong Chau – The Whale

Kerry Condon – The Banshees of Inisherin

Jamie Lee Curtis – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Dolly de Leon – Triangle of Sadness

ALT: Stephanie Hsu – Everything Everywhere All at Once

NOTE: Angela Bassett, Kerry Condon, and Jamie Lee Curtis are our trio who hit GG/CC/SAG/BAFTA, and although some have been mulling over a JLC snub lately, I don’t think I can bring myself to do the same. I think the industry really is gonna make this happen for her, and she simply has so much momentum at this point. Elsewhere, Hong Chau – bolstered by nominations from SAG and BAFTA and Brendan Fraser’s fortuitous Best Actor campaign – is looking like more of a lock by the day, and then… there’s that fifth spot. I had Stephanie Hsu in all week, but I’ve been wary of going 5/5 with SAG in three acting categories, and I’m also still not sure we’re getting double nominees in both Supporting Acting line-ups (especially when I still do wonder if Hsu’s lack of name recognition will sadly hurt her). So, in her place, I put GG/BAFTA nominee Dolly de Leon, the MVP of Triangle of Sadness (my wild card Best Picture nominee…) and someone I suspect will have STRONG international support.


Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Stephanie Hsu in Everything Everywhere All at Once

Todd Field – TÁR

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Tony Kushner and Steven Spielberg – The Fabelmans

Martin McDonagh – The Banshees of Inisherin

Ruben Östlund – Triangle of Sadness

ALT: Charlotte Wells – Aftersun

NOTE: The BAFTA five, and an easy five (four of these scripts – all except for Triangle – were nominated at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards too). I’ve had this line-up for a few months now, and I see no reason to change now. If Aftersun was gonna surprise, it needed to at BAFTA, I believe.


Brendan Fraser in The Whale

Edward Berger, Lesley Patterson, and Ian Stokell – All Quiet on the Western Front

Samuel D. Hunter – The Whale

Kazuo Ishiguro – Living

Rebecca Lenkiewicz – She Said

Sarah Polley – Women Talking

ALT: Rian Johnson – Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

NOTE: I think we’re in for some “shocking” snub here, and I still can’t fully decide on what it is, but Women Talking *and* Glass Onion missing at BAFTA was not a good look for either film. Oddly enough, The Whale and Living seem the most “in” to me, while All Quiet and She Said both got a big boost from BAFTA. I’ll put WT in over GO because it’s had the higher profile all year long – especially here, where it was once a frontrunner – but we may be in for a surprise shake-up…


Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick

Roger Deakins – Empire of Light

Greig Fraser – The Batman

James Friend – All Quiet on the Western Front

Claudio Miranda – Top Gun: Maverick

Mandy Walker – Elvis

ALT: Russell Carpenter – Avatar: The Way of Water

NOTE: As with Best Director and DGA, a good rule of thumb in Best Cinematography is to go 4/5 with ASC, which is what I’ve done here, keeping the frontrunner (Top Gun: Maverick), the next two that round out the top three (The Batman and Elvis – the only two films to make ASC and BSC), and then a branch fave (Roger Deakins with Empire of Light). BAFTA nominee All Quiet on the Western Front is my 5th nominee, though I do still think there’s some hope Avatar can come back from the dead and surprise here after missing almost everywhere else all season, even if its window is closing quickly.


Austin Butler in Elvis

Jenny Beavan – Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris

Ruth E. Carter – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Catherine Martin – Elvis

Gersha Phillips – The Woman King

Mary Zophres – Babylon

ALT: Albert Wolsky – Amsterdam

NOTE: This feels like another easy five a lot of us have had all season. Some have dropped The Woman King as its Best Picture chances waned (and after it missed the BAFTA longlist), but I think its costumes are praised and distinctive enough to still get Gersha Phillips in here. If she misses, it’ll likely be for a former branch fave, like Albert Wolsky (Amsterdam) or Mark Bridges (The Fabelmans).


Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick

David Brenner, James Cameron, John Refoua, and Stephen E. Rivkin – Avatar: The Way of Water

Sven Budelmann – All Quiet on the Western Front

Eddie Hamilton – Top Gun: Maverick

Paul Rogers – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Matt Villa and Jonathan Redmond – Elvis

ALT: Mikkel E.G. Nielsen – The Banshees of Inisherin

NOTE: I’m convinced three of these are just IN (Top GunEEAAO, and Elvis), and then, since I’m bullish on All Quiet overall (and believe it will overperform here as it did at the BAFTAs), I’ve slotted it in as well – war films are just absolute bait for the editing branch. In fifth, I’m holding onto Avatar, as even though I see the path for something like Banshees (a BAFTA nominee in this category and a bigger Best Picture contender), I think Avatar‘s showier work – work by numerous previous nominees, natch – might attract the branch a bit more.


Austin Butler in Elvis

Jason Baird, Mark Coulier, Louise Coulston, and Shane Thomas – Elvis

Anne Marie Bradley, Judy Chin, and Adrien Morot – The Whale

Naomi Donne, Mike Marino, and Zoe Tahir – The Batman

Heike Merker – All Quiet on the Western Front

Tina Roesler Kerwin and Jaime Leigh McIntosh – Blonde

ALT: Lori McCoy Bell, Nana Fischer, and Adruitha Lee – Amsterdam

NOTE: Again, we have three films that are absolutely, undeniably IN – ElvisThe Whale, and The Batman. Next, I feel comfortable throwing Blonde in here to coincide with Ana de Armas’ probable Best Actress nod, and last, I’ve got All Quiet, which, again, is on the cusp of an overperformance and had lots of unique makeup work to show off (that is said to have gone over very well with the branch). There are still paths for Babylon and Black Panther to break into this line-up too, but my alternate is actually Amsterdam, which is also said to have given a good presentation to the branch and maybe features some of the most “original” work in contention.


Carter Burwell – The Banshees of Inisherin

Alexandre Desplat – Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

Hildur Guðnadóttir – Women Talking

Justin Hurwitz – Babylon

John Williams – The Fabelmans

ALT: Volker Bertelmann – All Quiet on the Western Front

NOTE: Another easy five – the Golden Globes’ five, in fact – though I have been contemplating throwing All Quiet in there, but I just can’t figure out who to drop. I do think Babylon remains our frontrunner and I’m confident in Women Talking at the Oscars (even if it blanked at the BAFTAs), while The Fabelmans and Pinocchio should get in off the strength of John Williams and Alexandre Desplat, respectively. Banshees feels like the weakest of these IMO, but even then, Carter Burwell is no slouch either, so I’ll just stick with the safe five.


“Applause” – Tell It Like a Woman

“Ciao Papa” – Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

“Hold My Hand” – Top Gun: Maverick

“Lift Me Up” – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

“Naatu Naatu” – RRR

ALT: “Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength)” – Avatar: The Way of Water

NOTE: I sound like a broken record at this point, but this is another easy five. The frontrunner (“Naatu Naatu”), a few standout songs from films that are big awards contenders overall (“Ciao Papa,” “Hold My Hand,” and “Lift Me Up”) and Diane Warren (“Applause”). Not gonna overthink this one.


Austin Butler and Luke Bracey in Elvis

Hannah Beachler (Production Design) and Lisa Sessions Morgan (Set Decoration) – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Dylan Cole and Ben Procter (Production Design) and Vanessa Cole (Set Decoration) – Avatar: The Way of Water

Christian M. Goldbeck (Production Design) and Ernestine Hipper (Set Decoration) – All Quiet on the Western Front

Catherine Martin (Production Design) and Beverley Dunn (Set Decoration) – Elvis

Florencia Martin (Production Design) and Anthony Carlino (Set Decoration) – Babylon

ALT: Rick Carter (Production Design) and Karen O’Hara (Set Decoration) – The Fabelmans

NOTE: We’ve had a solid top four here for awhile – Avatar: The Way of Water, BabylonBlack Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Elvis – and recently, All Quiet‘s ascension has allowed it to overtake The Fabelmans in fifth, even if this does feel like the likeliest tech for the latter film, should it pop up anywhere below-the-line. But this five really feels right (thanks to their strong showings at ADG, SDSA, and BAFTA) and especially over Fabelmans, since their work seems more apparent and distinctive, while Fabelmans lacks passion.


Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick

Dick Bernstein, Christopher Boyes, Michael Hedges, Julian Howarth, Gary Summers, and Gwendolyn Yates Whittle – Avatar: The Way of Water

Chris Burdon, James H. Mather, Al Nelson, Mark Taylor, and Mark Weingarten – Top Gun: Maverick

William Files, Douglas Murray, Andy Nelson, and Stuart Wilson – The Batman

Lars Ginzel, Frank Kruse, Viktor Prášil, and Markus Stemler – All Quiet on the Western Front

Michael Keller, David Lee, Andy Nelson, and Wayne Pashley – Elvis

ALT: Ian Chase, Alexandra Fehrman, Brent Kiser, Stephen Nelson, and Andrew Twite – Everything Everywhere All at Once

NOTE: The only real question here for me is whether or not EEAAO can get in, and who it takes out. I’ve stuck with the CAS nominees for my five, and I really feel like Top GunAll QuietElvis, and Avatar are “safe.” There’s a world where The Batman, as the only non-Best Picture contender, falls off, but that sound work is such showy bait for this branch that I just fail to see how they overlook it (especially since it’s had a solid precursor run). EEAAO needs in here if its gonna contend for the Best Film Editing win, but I’m doubtful.


Sam Worthington as Jake Sully in Avatar: The Way of Water

Richard Baneham, Daniel Barrett, Joe Letteri, and Eric Saindon – Avatar: The Way of Water

Jason Billington, Bruce Bright, and Brian Cox – Thirteen Lives

Russell Earl, Anders Langlands, Dan Lemmon, and Dominic Tuohy – The Batman

Scott R. Fisher, Seth Hill, Bryan Litson, and Ryan Tudhope – Top Gun: Maverick

Markus Frank, Kamil Jafar, Viktor Müller, and Frank Petzold – All Quiet on the Western Front

ALT: Theo Bialek, Chris Corbould, Janek Sirrs, and Erik Winquist – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

NOTE: Avatar (your winner), Top Gun, and Batman have shown up anywhere and everywhere – they’re locked. And in lieu of any Marvel movies this year (both of which have underperformed with precursors), I’m going with the overperforming All Quiet – a BAFTA nominee as of yesterday – and Thirteen Lives, which is said to have had a strong presentation for the branch and certainly has a helluva lot of underrated work to show off.


Gregory Mann in Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

My Father’s Dragon

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

Turning Red

ALT: Minions: The Rise of Gru

NOTE: We know the top four – PinocchioMarcelPuss in Boots, and Turning Red – and the winner (the wooden boy!), so the only real question is that fifth spot. No film has really made a successful play to position itself as the next-in-line contender (Minions got a PGA nom and a BAFTA longlist mention, but feels like too much of a populist pick), though My Father’s Dragon did “decent” at the Annie Awards and is backed by both Netflix and Cartoon Saloon (who know what they’re doing here), so I’ll just toss that in since nothing else makes total sense.


Fire of Love

All That Breathes

All the Beauty and the Bloodshed


Fire of Love


ALT: Moonage Daydream

NOTE: Give-or-take Moonage Daydream or Bad Axe, I’ve felt like this is our Documentary Feature five for AWHILE, and not much has changed that. Moonage did well with precursors, but I very much worry about what the branch will think of its archival footage (typically a “no-no” here). And while Descendant might be the least buzzy of this quintet, it’s from Netflix and backed by the Obamas, so that’s not nothing.


All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front

Argentina, 1985


Decision to Leave


ALT: The Quiet Girl

NOTE: All Quiet – as the only potential Best Picture nominee in International Feature contention – is by far and away the frontrunner here, but Argentina, 1985Close, and Decision to Leave have shown up alongside it in almost every International Feature line-up as of late, so it feels foolish to doubt them now. That fifth spot is – as usual – the tricky one, but I’m betting that EO is the “artsy” passion pick that gets in even over something from a “bigger name,” like Bardo (while BAFTA fave The Quiet Girl is also waiting in the wings).


The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, and The Horse

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse

The Flying Sailor

My Year of Dicks

New Moon

Save Ralph

ALT: An Ostrich Told Me the World Is Fake and I Think I Believe It


The Flagmakers

38 at the Garden

The Elephant Whisperers

The Flagmakers

Holding Moses

How Do You Measure a Year?

ALT: Nuisance Bear


Le Pupille

An Irish Goodbye

Le Pupille


The Red Suitcase


ALT: Ivalu

NOTE: I’m just going with the Gold Derby top five for each of these short film categories, since they’re nearly impossible to predict (partially because some can be so difficult to track down, and partially because it’s tough to say what the short voters’ “taste” will be in a given year/what subjects most pique their interest).
