Oscar nominations for 2023 Snubs and Surprises: “Nope,” says Andrea Riseborough Tim Burton

There are a variety of surprises and snubs as the Oscars get ready to wrap out another awards season. The 95th Academy Awards nominees were announced on Tuesday by Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams, and there were unanticipated inclusions that many people weren’t expecting as well as a few names who weren’t on the final list.

Lack of nominations for any female directors and Nope were among them, but surprising names like Andrea Riseborough, Brian Tyree Henry, and Stephanie Hsu were listed in the acting categories. Then there came Tom Cruise, the center of it all.

The biggest surprises and omissions from the 2023 Oscar nominations are broken down below:

DISQUALIFIED: Tom Cruise for Best Actor

Although Top Gun: Maverick’s producer Tom Cruise received a nomination for Best Picture, many people believed that this would be the year he received his fourth acting award because to his well-reviewed performance in one of 2022’s most popular movies. Although it didn’t win any awards, the Top Gun sequel did receive several significant nominations, including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Song for Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand.”

Stephanie Hsu unexpectedly wins Best Supporting Actress

Everything Everywhere All at Once has received plenty of praise this award season, but Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan have received most of the attention. Now that Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu have both received first-time nominations for the Oscars, they are both firmly in the running. The cast of the hit movie received a total of four acting nominations this year, the most of any movie.

All Female Directors SNUB

Once more, no female camera operators who were serious contenders for the Academy Awards were honored. They include Maria Schrader (Till), Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Woman King), Charlotte Wells (Aftersun), Sarah Polley (Women Talking), and Charlotte Wells (She Said). Since 1929, only six women have been nominated for Best Director: Lina Wertmüller, Chloé Zhao, Emerald Fennell, Greta Gerwig, Kathryn Bigelow, and Jane Campion.

Brian Tyree Henry unexpectedly wins Best Supporting Actor.

Causeway hasn’t made the biggest influence on the awards season thus far, despite the fact that Atlanta breakthrough actor Brian Tyree Henry has established himself as a strong presence onscreen. Up until this point, Henry’s performance as an auto mechanic in the psychological drama starring Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for a Critics Choice Award and an Independent Spirit Award. But with his first Oscar nomination, Henry has made the jump to the major leagues, which is great to see.

Nope Being Shut Out (SNUB)

Get Out by Jordan Peele changed the course of Oscar history, and since then, his subsequent films have been less and less significant. And, regrettably, Nope was completely excluded. In addition to being a strong contender for several of the top awards, such as Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay, many people believed Keke Palmer had a good chance of earning her first acting nomination.

Andrea Riseborough unexpectedly wins Best Actress

The biggest surprise was when Andrea Riseborough’s name appeared in the Best Actress category for To Leslie, leaving out a number of prominent actors and actresses, including Danielle Deadwyler for Till and Viola Davis for The Woman King. And only once, for an Independent Spirit Award, had her name been mentioned before Tuesday’s revelation. But if you’re wondering how she ended up on this list, it was because of a late-season, celebrity-heavy word-of-mouth campaign.

Jimmy Kimmel will serve as the host of the 95th Academy Awards, which will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, on March 12 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC. Keep checking back to ETonline.com for comprehensive Oscars coverage in the interim.
