Oscar nomination predictions by film: ‘Everything Everywhere,’ ‘The Fabelmans’ will lead

When the nominations for the 2023 Academy Awards are announced Tuesday, January 24 at 5:30 a.m. PT, listen for “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “The Fabelmans” to be called out more than any other movie title. According to Gold Derby’s racetrack odds, these two films will dominate the morning with a whopping nine nominations apiece, including bids for picture, directing, acting and writing. Next in line will be “The Banshees of Inisherin” with a still-impressive eight bids. Scroll down to see all 2023 Oscar nomination predictions by film.

A24’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is directed by the Daniels (aka Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) and stars Michelle Yeoh as a laundromat owner named Evelyn Quan Wang who traverses alternate universes. Besides bids for picture, director, original screenplay and lead actress, the sci-fi epic is also expected to pick up acting noms for supporting players Jamie Lee Curtis, Stephanie Hsu and Ke Huy Quan. Also watch out for below-the-line notices in film editing and sound.

Universal Pictures’ “The Fabelmans” is a semi-autographical story based on the early life of uber-director Steven Spielberg. To date he is an eight-time Oscar nominee in Best Director, and this film should bring him his ninth citation. He’s also a co-producer and a co-writer, so he could nab a total of three nominations for this project. The actors who play versions of his parents, Michelle Williams and Paul Dano, are expected to reap bids, as well as the cinematographer, film editor, production designer and composer.

Searchlight Pictures’ “The Banshees of Inisherin,” which tells the quirky story of the end of a lifelong friendship in 1923 Ireland, is forecasted to dominate the above-the-line races, with mentions for picture, director (Martin McDonagh), lead actor (Colin Farrell), supporting actress (Kerry Condon), supporting actor (Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan) and original screenplay. The only craft bid it’s predicted to receive is for Best Score.
