The 95th Academy Awards takes place this weekend. And while some categories seem locked at this point — Ke Huy Quan for Best Supporting Actor, Avatar: The Way of Water for Best Visual Effects — plenty are up in the air. Will Austin Butler or Brendan Fraser win Best Actor? And who's going to win Best Supporting Actress between Angela Bassett, Kerry Condon, and Jamie Lee Curtis? As movie's big night approaches, we're keeping a close eye on these particularly tight races.

Everything Everywhere All At Once, the Daniels' multiverse dramedy, leads the pack with scoring 11 nominations total for the 2023 Oscars. The Banshees of Inisherin or All Quiet on the Western Front followed close behind with nine nominations apiece. 

Baz Luhrmann's musical biopic Elvis has also gained much momentum with eight nominations. And while Steven Spielberg's semi-autobiographical drama The Fabelmans scored seven total, Todd Field's Tár earned six nominations. Meanwhile, Top Gun: Maverick and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever were the two sequel films that won big with six and five nominations, respectively.

Besides Everything Everywhere All At Once, The Banshees of Inisherin, and All Quiet on the Western Front, the films nominated for Best Picture include Avatar: The Way of WaterElvisThe Fabelmans, Tar, Top Gun: MaverickTriangle of Sadness, and Women Talking.
