2023 Academy Awards Winners - Fraser & Yeoh Finally Win Oscars

March 12, 2023

Academy Awards 2023

The 95th Academy Awards are finally upon us and it's time to watch the show and discover the winners of the most prestigious award in Hollywood. The Oscars have once again returned to their normal routine, wrapping up another very long season with this spectacular March event. All awards will be marked below in the complete list alongside the nominees. There are ten Best Picture nominees from 2022, and it has been a rather exciting awards season. The frontrunner is the beloved Everything Everywhere All at Once, which is my #1 of 2022 anyway, though I was not expecting it to end up winning so much already. The rest of tonight should be a surprise. I'm enjoying this anticipation and I'm curious to find out what The Academy members picked. I'd also be happy with Tár or The Fabelmans winning as well. Big night for Hollywood! Now it's time to find out who's taking home Oscars this year, and who isn't, at the annual Academy Awards. The full set of nominees below will be updated with winners highlighted once revealed live on air - refresh for updates.

Oscars Ceremony

Final Thoughts: This is the best outcome!! I never thought in a million years that Everything Everywhere All at Once would go on to win a total of 7 Oscars. I think it's a brilliant, innovative, emotionally intelligent, beautiful film and it absolutely deserves all of these Oscars (and maybe even a few others it didn't win). Yes, I also think Tár is a phenomenal film and even though it didn't win anything, I'm can't be unhappy because at least one of my favorites won a bunch anyway! I'm still a bit unsure about All Quiet on the Western Front succeeding in so many of the technical categories, then again, this is really where the film shines the most so it deserves to win them anyway. Overall, the ceremony was rather easy going and uneventful, which might just be the right way for this presentation to strive onward. Let the winners speak and let the films be the center of attention! Not the ceremony. I couldn't be happier to see Brendan Fraser win, what an emotional speech. I'm also pleased that Women Talking got something (good film). Plus of course RRR livening up the Dolby Theatre with its "Naatu Naatu" energy, especially when it then won and he sang his thank you speech.
