The Daniels’ “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” a twisty sci-fi adventure, leads the nominations with 11 nods. It’s followed closely behind by “All Quiet on the Western Front,” a World War I epic, and “The Banshees of Inisherin,” a darkly comic look at friendship that unfolds against the backdrop of the Irish civil war, both of which scored nine nominations.

The best picture race also contains the two highest-grossing films of the year, “Avatar: The Way of Water” and “Top Gun: Maverick,” along with “Elvis,” a musical biopic about the rock ‘n roll legend. Other contenders include Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical “The Fabelmans”;”Tár,” a drama about an abusive conductor embroiled in a MeToo-like scandal; “Women Talking,” a look at the residents of a repressive religious community; and “Triangle of Sadness,” a satire of the 1% that takes place on a luxury yacht.

After having three hosts last year — Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Syke — the Oscars will return to a solo host this year, with Jimmy Kimmel returning to front the ceremony for the third time. The late night host last hosted the ceremony five years ago.

ABC is likely hoping for increased viewership after a pulling in a meager 16.6 million viewers last year, a small rebound from the previous year’s record low. Kimmel’s previous Oscars, in 2018, averaged 26.5 million viewers.
