The 2023 Oscars are fast approaching and nominees include Austin Butler for the Elvis biopic, Cate Blanchett for Tar and the war film Nothing new on the western frontwhich just won the BAFTA for Best Film.
The Oscars ceremony takes place once a year for one night, but once the awards for the best actors, directors and films have been presented, the team behind the event starts working on the next one and the studios prepare to release their projects that they hope bring nominations, so it’s never too early to start talking about them.
The Oscars 2023 are still a few days away, but we already know the nominated films (especially those premiering at Cannes 2022) that could be the big winners, and the actors and actresses who have been making waves since the start of awards season and who could surprise with several awards at the ceremony.
When does the night of the Oscars 2023 fall (and where the ceremony is held)
The ceremony is held at March in the night between The 12 and The 13. The ceremony is held, as usual, in Los Angeles, at the famous Dolby Theater.
How to follow the Oscars live on TV and streaming
The Italian public will be able to follow the awards ceremony of the 95th edition of the Academy Awards live on Sky and in streaming on NOW.

Who will perform during the ceremony
The evening will be presented by Jimmy Kimmel flanked by various actors and personalities who will gradually read the names of the winners. However, there will be live performances, for example, of the candidates in the best song category. Rihannaveteran of the Super Bowl Halftime Show and nominated with the song Lift me upwhich appears in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is already a certainty in this sense, as well as Sofia Carson candidate with the song Applause. There will also be playing Lenny Kravitz who will accompany the traditional moment with his voice In memory, celebratory of the great cinema talents who have passed away in the last 12 months. Dulcis in fundo, another great moment of music and entertainment will be given by the performance of Naatu Naatu from the soundtrack of crazy indian movie all epic, action (and dance) RRR.
The long list of presenter
The Oscars are a collective celebration, in which even pronouncing the names of the winners is part of the show and an honour. This year between presenter who will open the envelopes (hopefully without making a mistake as happened to Warren Beatty in 2017), there are: Florence Pugh, Halle Bailey, Andrew Garfield, Antonio Banderas, Elizabeth Banks, Jessica Chastain, John Cho, Hugh Grant, Danai Gurira, Salma Hayek Pinault, Nicole Kidman, Sigourney Weaver, Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Jennifer Connelly, Ariana DeBose, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael B. Jordan, Troy Kotsur, Jonathan Majors, Melissa McCarthy, Janelle Monáe, Deepika Padukone , Questlove, Zoe Saldana, Donnie Yen
The predictions for the Oscars 2023
There are already some favourites. One is Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic, in which actor Austin Butler brings the rock n roll legend to life, chronicling his childhood, rise and final days. The trio Everything Everywhere All At Once, Nothing new on the western front And The spirits of the island seems the most likely candidate for the main statuette. As well as Cate Blanchett for best protagonist and Brendan Fraser and Colin Farrell as a duel for the Oscar for best protagonist.
