Who's hosting?

Jimmy Kimmel will be returning for his third stint as host of the awards show in 2023.

"Jimmy is the perfect host to help us recognize the incredible artists and films of our 95th Oscars. His love of movies, live TV expertise and ability to connect with our global audiences will create an unforgettable experience for our millions of viewers worldwide," Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences CEO Bill Kramer and president Janet Yang said in a joint statement.

As usual, it's expected that Kimmel will be joined by a number of A-list performers to present the awards themselves, though precisely who that could include has not been announced yet. Given that both Rihanna and Lady Gaga are nominated for the Best Original Song category—which are typically performed live at the event—many are anticipating an extra star-studded event this year.

Who are the nominees?

This year, the Michelle Yeoh-starring Everything Everywhere All at Once led the nominations pack garnering 11 nominations, followed by The Banshees of Inisherin and All Quiet on the Western Front with nine nods a piece.
