95th Academy Award nominations

Blockbuster films expected to dominate 95th Academy Award nominations

This year’s Oscars will be a big test for Hollywood’s traditional movie-making industry. With many films released in the last year being impacted by the pandemic, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences will have a tough time selecting which films to nominate. However, it is expected that films such as “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and “Elvis” will receive multiple nominations. These films are considered blockbusters that have been able to draw in large crowds to the theater, which is a clear indication of their popularity.

One film that is also expected to receive multiple nominations is “The Banshees of Inisherin,” a dark comedy set in Ireland. The film is directed by Martin McDonagh and is expected to score as many as four acting nods, including nominations for Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Another film that is expected to receive nominations is “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” an A24 sci-fi indie hit. The film could walk away with the most nominations on Tuesday, including nods for Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan.

Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” may also receive nominations, despite not having done well at the box office. The film is set to land Spielberg his 20th Oscar nomination and eighth nod for best-director. John Williams, his longtime composer, should extend his record for the most Oscar nominations for a living person. Another nod for best score will give Williams his 53rd nomination, a number that trails only Walt Disney’s 59.

While the future of Hollywood remains uncertain, one thing is for sure, the 95th Academy Awards is sure to be a night filled with excitement and drama as the best films of the year are recognized and celebrated.

Another film that could be a surprise nominee this year is “20 Days in Mariupol,” a documentary that shines a light on the horrors of war. The film has received critical acclaim for its powerful storytelling and ability to humanize the conflict. It could be a strong contender in the documentary category.

In the acting categories, there are some notable performances that could be recognized. Tom Cruise could receive a best actor nomination for his role in “Top Gun: Maverick,” while Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan are expected to be nominated for their roles in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson could also be nominated for their roles in “The Banshees of Inisherin.”

One film that could be a dark horse in the best picture category is “Shotgun Wedding,” a comedy-romance film starring Jennifer Lopez and Armie Hammer. The film has received praise for its comedic timing and the chemistry between its leads. It could be a surprise nominee in the best picture category.

Overall, the 95th Academy Awards will be a night to remember as the best films and performances of the year are recognized and celebrated. With a mix of blockbusters, indie films, and streaming titles, it’s sure to be a diverse and exciting show. With the ongoing pandemic, the ceremony will have to be a different format but it will be still a great night for the film industry.
