Everything Everywhere All at Once

The A24-produced indie Everything Everywhere All at Once has been a huge success and crowd-pleaser since it came out last year.

The film is nominated for Best Picture, and Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu and Jamie Lee Curtis received nods for their performances.

Yeoh, Quan and Hsu carry a mind-bending multiverse story about a Chinese American family’s disconnection and how they find each other again through the existence of other versions of themselves.

The film is available for streaming on Paramount+ with a Showtime add-on.

The Banshees of Inisherin

Nine nominations. It can be streamed on HBO Max and Amazon and rented on YouTube.

Securing a best picture nomination and nods for Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon, The Banshees of Inisherin tells a tale of the ebbs and flows of the friendship between Farrell’s Pádraic and Gleeson’s Colm while highlighting haunting Irish landscapes.

All Quiet on the Western Front

Nine nominations. Netflix.

All Quiet on the Western Front, an unflinching German-language adaptation of a classic anti-war novel about life and death in the WWI trenches, is nominated for best picture and a slew of other Oscars.

In Elvis, Baz Luhrmann’s vision transforms the relatively unknown former child actor Austin Butler into the King.

The Fabelmans

Eight nominations. Rent and purchase on Apple TV, YouTube and Amazon.

Steven Spielberg’s most personal film yet documents the joys and ultimate perils that fragment the Fabelman family forever. In a love letter to film and his family, Spielberg allows viewers to see behind his passion for film and his search for the meaning of family and life.

Cate Blanchett plays a renowned conductor, Lydia Tar. As the titular character, she is cunning, talented and on too high of a pedestal to fall — but she does.

From La La Land director Damien Chazelle comes a journey into 1920s Hollywood hedonism and a drug-fuelled fever dream of the bygone cinematic era. The film stars Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and newcomer Diego Calva in a three-hour story about filmmaking at a crucial time for American cinema.

Best actress nominee. Netflix.

Ana de Armas receives her first nod for best actress for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in the adaption of Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, Blonde. The film is not quite a biopic of the late movie star’s life. It is more of a bruising narrative told from the perspective of director Andrew Dominik.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Best adapted screenplay nominee. Netflix.

The sequel to director Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery features the return of Daniel Craig’s southern twang-heavy detective Benoit Blanc.

The twisty whodunnit does what the original did best: Allow problematic and murderous rich people to measure their egos and decipher which one is a killer.


Best actor nominee. Rent on Amazon and YouTube.

Writer-director Charlotte Wells illustrates the bond between a father-daughter duo portrayed by first-time Oscar nominee Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio. Aftersun touches on the pivotal moments in an adolescent life when the world feels so big, but childlike wonder starts to fade when the reality of life peeks through the cracks.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

Best animated film nominee. Netflix.

The decades-old child’s tale Pinocchio gets retold through the lens of Guillermo Del Toro’s dark mind. This is not the Disney version of Pinocchio — in Del Toro’s still musical version, themes of fascism are explored.

The cast includes Christoph Waltz, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton and Ewan McGregor and it is nominated for best animated film.


Best international feature nominee. Digital rental on Apple TV and Vudu.

EO is the story of a circus donkey who is taken from his owner and begins a long, spiritual journey through the modern Polish and Italian countryside, encountering humans both kind and cruel. It is a love letter to animals, directed by Jerzy Skolimowski.

Argentina, 1985

Best international feature nominee. Amazon Prime Video.

Argentina,1985 establishes the 1985 Trial of the Juntas, a historic moment for Argentina that helped launch the country’s democratic future after seven years of military dictatorship. Director Santiago Mitre shaped the classic political thriller into a story about preserving history and the years it takes to receive justice.

All the Beauty and the Bloodshed

Best documentary feature nominee. Still only in limited cinemas.

American photographer Nan Goldin’s life’s work is told throughout All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, and it’s not just about photography. Directed by Laura Poitras, this documentary dives into Goldin’s political activism and how the sticky web of the Sackler family’s philanthropic interests in the art world intersected with their pharmaceutical company Purdue Pharma, which has faced a barrage of lawsuits alleging that it helped cause an opioid addiction and overdose crisis.

The film is nominated for best documentary feature.

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

Best animated film nominee. Digital purchase on Amazon, Apple TV and YouTube and is available to stream on Paramount+ and Hulu for those who have a Showtime subscription.

Marcel the Shell With Shoes On is a feature-length, stop-motion animation film based on the YouTube shorts made by Jenny Slate, who voices Marcel in a high-pitched octave, and director Dean Fleischer Camp.

The experience of being small, cute and unassuming is the heart of the film about a mollusk.

Turning Red

Best animated film nominee. Disney+.

Turning Red is the first Pixar movie directed solely by a woman. Helmed by Domee Shi, who also made the Oscar-winning short, Bao, the animated film is a coming-of-age tale about a Chinese Canadian eighth-grader who turns into a big, fluffy red panda – a walking metaphor for growing young womanhood.


Best original song. Netflix.

SS Rajamouli’s three-hour maximalist action epic RRR is one of India’s most expensive – and top-grossing – films of all time.

It pairs two of Tollywood’s biggest stars, NT Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charan, as revolutionaries fighting against the British colonialists in 1920.
