For a groundbreaking presentation of the lives of black trans women sex-workers in black and white, for taking us into their bedrooms and sharing in their incredible vulnerability as we hear their stories, all the while listening with her camera in a way that is electric and alive. For examining the injustice of a world that relegates so many women to a second-class citizenship and the oppressive nature of gender roles for everyone. For making perhaps the funniest movie Sundance has ever shown, and reminding us that the life or death struggle of these women is best understood in their defiant use of humor as a weapon. The NEXT wave of cinema is the profound use of comedy for serious subject matter, and for bringing us all together with laughter, in a hope that the love we come to feel for the people in this film can result in a larger social transformation. The NEXT Innovator Award goes to KOKOMO CITY directed by D. Smith.

2023 Academy Awards: ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ is the top nominee

January 24, 2023

With 11 nominations, A24’s sci-fi/action film “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is the top contender for the 95th annual Academy Awards, which will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 12, 2023. ABC will have the live U.S. telecast of the show, which will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Netflix’s German-language World War I drama “All Quiet on the Western Front” and Searchlight Pictures’ 1920s Irish comedy/drama “The Banshees of Inisherin” garnered nine nominations each. All three films are nominated for Best Picture, a category that—for the first time in Oscar history—is now required to have no less than 10 nominations per year.

The other nominations for Best Picture for the 2023 Academy Awards are 20th Century Studios’ sci-fi epic “Avatar: The Way of Water,” Warner Bros. Pictures’ drama “Elvis,” Universal Pictures’ drama “The Fabelmans,” Focus Features’ drama “TÁR,” Paramount Pictures’ action film “Top Gun: Maverick,” Neon’s comedy/drama “Triangle of Sadness” and Orion Pictures’ drama “Women Talking.”

The Academy Awards (or Oscars) are voted on and presented by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. The 95th annual televised Oscar ceremony will be headed by executive producers/showrunners Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner and executive producer Molly McNearney.

Snubs and Surprises

Columbia Pictures’ action film “The Woman King,” which has been getting nominations (mostly for lead actress Viola Davis) at other awards shows, was completely shut out of the Oscar nominations. Also getting snubbed was Danielle Deadwyler, who has been getting nominated elsewhere for her lead actress performance in the Orion Pictures drama “Till,” which failed to get any Oscar nominations. And although James Cameron got a Best Picture nod for being a producer of “Avatar: The Way of Water,” he missed out on getting a Best Director nomination for the movie, even though he’s been nominated for Best Director at most other major award shows.

Surprises included a Best Actress nomination for Andrea Riseborough of the Momentum Pictures drama “To Leslie,” which has not been getting nominated at any other major award shows. “All Quiet on the Western Front” received nine Oscar nominations, which has never happened before for a German-language film. The only other major award show that has given “All Quiet on the Western Front” several nominations is the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs), which bestowed 14 nominations on the movie. “Triangle of Sadness” also made it

With eight nominations, including Best Feature, A24’s dimension-traveling sci-fi/action film “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is the top contender at the 38th annual Film Independent Spirit Awards, which will take place at an in-person ceremony at Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California, on March 4, 2023. The Focus Features drama “TÁR,” starring Cate Blanchett as a maestro classical music conductor facing a scandal, follows close behind, with seven nominations, including Best Feature.

The non-profit group Film Independent votes for and presents the Spirit Awards, which are for movies, which have an independent production budget of no more than $30 million, and TV shows that embody an “indepedent spirit.” IFC will have the live telecast the show, while AMC+ will offer streaming of the ceremony. The show’s host will be announced at a later date.

Nominees in the movie categories were announced by actors Taylour Paige and Raúl Castillo on November 22, 2022. Nominees in the TV categories will be announced by actor Asia Kate Dillon on December 13, 2022. This article will be updated with the TV nominees after they are announced.

Here’s what’s new for the 2023 Film Indepedent Spirit Awards, according to an announcement on the Film Independent website:

  • All acting categories are now gender-neutral. The categories for Best Lead Performance and Best Supporting Performance have a maximum of 10 nominees per category, unless there is a tie in the voting.
  • A new catgeory has been added: Best Breakthrough Performance, given to “performers making themselves known to wider audiences through noteworthy character portrayals,” according to Film Indepedent.
  • The maximum production budget for eligible films has increased from $22.5 million to $30 million.
  • The maximum production budget for the John Cassavetes Award has increased from $500,000 to $1 million.

The director, casting director and principal cast members of the MGM/United Artists Releasing drama “Women Talking” will receive the Robert Altman Award, a non-competitive prize given to one movie per year and announced in advance of the ceremony. “Women Talking” is also up for Spirit Awards in these competitive categories: Best Feature, Best Director (for Sarah Polley) and Best Screenplay (also for Polley).

Some eligible films were noticeably snubbed and didn’t get any Spirit Award nominations, such as the A24 drama “The Whale,” the Orion Pictures drama “Till” and the Netflix documentary “Descendant.” These movies have received nominations or prizes at other award shows that give prizes to movies.
