Oscar Nominations announced
Nominations for the 95th annual Academy Awards were announced yesterday, led by "Everything Everywhere All at Once," with 11 nominations. The multiverse science fiction film's Michelle Yeoh becomes the first Asian woman nominated for best actress. "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "The Banshees of Inisherin" follow with nine nominations each.
Major blockbusters hit big this year—the 10 best picture nominees have grossed a combined nearly $1.6B in domestic ticket sales, with "Top Gun: Maverick" and "Avatar: The Way of Water" accounting for a combined $1.3B. The nominations come at a time when the Academy is trying to attract more viewers. Last year's ceremony marked the second least-watched and lowest-rated telecast in Oscars history.
