How will the Oscars turn out this year

Compared to earlier events, the 2023 Oscars will appear much more familiar. The 95th Academy Awards will have every Oscar category being awarded live on the air, as well as a single host returning (Jimmy Kimmel is scheduled to be an MC for a third time).

Oscars 2023: Everything You Should Know About 95th Academy Awards

Officially known as the Academy Award of Merit, the Oscar trophy is presented annually. Yet, the unofficial moniker “the Oscars” is used to refer to both the trophy and the ceremony. While the origins of the name are unclear, Margaret Herrick, an Academy librarian, is said to have noted that it reminded her of her uncle Oscar when she first saw the trophy, according to a widely-repeated account on the website for the Academy Awards.

On Sunday, March 12, 2023, the 2023 Oscars will be held. Starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, the 2023 Oscars ceremony will be broadcast on a number of different televisions. Due to the pandemic, the 2021 event was hosted in Union Station in the heart of Los Angeles to make place for physically separated seats. The Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center served as its home until last year when it returned there. While the location has subsequently changed names to Ovation Hollywood, the 2023 event will still take place there.

The Academy experienced record-breaking participation for this year’s nominees, resulting in the highest voter turnout in the Academy Awards’ 95-year history, according to a letter from Academy CEO Bill Kramer to members of the award board. Following the conclusion of the Oscar nomination voting on Tuesday, January 17, Kramer sent an email complimenting the involvement of AMPAS members, who represented more than 80 nations, breaking the previous record of participants set in 2022. The Academy withholds precise numbers on voting participation, however it is known that there are 9,579 eligible members throughout the 18 chapters.

What happened at the 2022 Oscars?

The best picture category, which ensured that 10 films would be honored, returned for the 2022 iteration of the event. The extraordinary array of nominations featured creative selections, such as the Japanese drama “Drive My Car,” which garnered huge attention and won best picture, as well as a flurry of unexpected inclusions in the acting categories. The world watched as unexpected omissions were made, including Lady Gaga’s removal from the best actress category in the 2022 awards ceremony.

The 2022 Oscars was a historic one that will not be forgotten soon. The uplifting CODA, available on Apple TV+, made history by becoming the first streaming service’s best picture winner; its main actor, Troy Kotsur made history by becoming the first deaf man to win an acting Oscar. West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose made history by becoming the first openly queer woman of color to win best supporting actress; just before Will Smith won best actor, he took part in a jaw-dropping viral moment that will live on across pop culture.

What are the Predictions for the 2023 Oscars?

The year 2022 has produced a large number of movies, some of which may have been initially overlooked but have gained a great deal of acclaim, while others were predicted to be major contenders until their unimpressive reviews or lack of buzz revealed otherwise.

Naturally, an awards event such as the Academy Awards will always attract vast audiences, including betting enthusiasts, especially as some potential and possible outcomes could take place. Making Oscar predictions has become an incredibly popular activity for film enthusiasts, and nowadays there are plenty of reputable  wagering platforms that provide  interesting odds on a range of  markets including cinema.

There will be plenty of excitement within the betting ring for punters this year, especially as the nominations for each main category at the 2023 Oscars have already been made.

Unsurprisingly, the 2023 Oscars event is expected to feature a wide range of films, including ones from the drama, science-fiction, action, and comedy genres as well as a startlingly large number of sequels to films that were released decades earlier. Here are some of the predictions:

Best Picture

The nominees for the 2023 Oscars who have received the most nominations are Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Banshees of Inisherin, and The Fabelmans. Over the award season, these three movies received a number of Best Picture (or comparable) nominations, which carried over to the Academy Awards. There are still a few top-10 films that have received high praise from critics that could win the prize, though; although none of them are perhaps among the most inspiring of all time.

Best Actor

Though the Best Actor award nominees appeared to be set, the eventual victor is less certain. Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, and Austin Butler are the most likely candidates to take home the Best Actor Oscar in 2023. Each of the front-runners in the category has already received nominations from other voting bodies; Brendan Fraser took home the trophy at the TIFF Tribute Awards, while Colin Farrell took home the prize at the Venice Film Festival.

Best Actress

It has become harder to predict who will win Best Actress at the Oscars in recent years, however the front-runner for the award in 2023 is Cate Blanchett. Michelle Yeoh and Michelle Williams are the other contenders to take home the Best Actress Oscar in 2023 after Blanchett. In the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, and Gotham Awards, these three actresses were all up for the same prize; additionally, each of them has this season’s Best Actress awards from different awarding organizations.

Which top musician will be performing at the 2023 Oscars?

BeyoncĂ© and Billie Eilish, who were both nominated for Oscars in 2022, were both on the Oscar performance lineup, while 2023 appears to be a year of just-popular-stars performances. On February 23, CNN announced that Rihanna would perform “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at the Oscars as a follow-up to her wildly popular Super Bowl halftime show. Lady Gaga, another artist who is nominated, will perform “Hold My Hand” from Top Gun: Maverick on stage also. 

How will the Oscars presentation look in the 2023 edition?

About the ceremony’s structure or the sequence of events that evening, little is currently known. The 2023 live show will have all 23 categories, unlike in 2022, according to a Variety story, which has made this information known. The eight categories (editing, production design, make-up and hairstyling, original soundtrack, sound, live-action short, documentary short, and animated short) were presented off-air, with highlights later inserted into the program, sparking ire from the whole industry in 2022.
