On March 12, 2023, the 95th Academy Awards will be given out at a ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The movies from 2022 will be recognised with honours.

In the US, ABC will broadcast the event that Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss produced. Jimmy Kimmel, the comedian and late-night talk show host, will host the event for a third time, having done so during the 89th and 90th iterations in 2017 and 2018, respectively. While in India, the 95th Academy Awards will be live streamed on Disney+ Hotstar on March 13 (Monday) at 5:30 a.m.


On January 24, 2023, actors Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams announced the nominees. As the first Indian song to receive an Oscar nomination, the RRR song Naatu Naatu is up for Best Original Song at the event.

The first Asian woman to be nominated for Best Actress was Michelle Yeoh. It was the first time two Asian actresses were nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category in the same year, with Hong Chau and Stephanie Hsu. Also, it was the first time Asian actors were nominated in three different acting categories in the same year, joining Yeoh's nomination for best actress and Ke Huy Quan's nomination for best supporting actor. Angela Bassett became the first person to be nominated for an acting award at the Oscars for a role in a Marvel Comics-based movie thanks to her nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

All Quiet on the Western Front was not only nominated for Best Picture, but it also became the sixteenth nominee for Best International Feature Film. With his 53rd nomination, John Williams set his own record for most Oscar nominations while still alive and the second-most overall. He also became the second-oldest competitive nominee in Oscar history (behind Walt Disney) at the age of 90.

The ceremony also had the most non-American actors nominated for an Oscar. There were 11 nominees in the four acting categories. This is Judd Hirsch's second nomination and first since the 53rd Academy Awards in 1981, when he was nominated for Ordinary People, and he made history by being the first actor to receive two nods over forty years apart for his portrayal in The Fabelmans (1980). As the first Irish entry to be nominated for Best International Feature, The Quiet Girl made history.

The Best Picture category will feature two sequels at the same ceremony for the first time with Avatar: The Way of Water and Top Gun: Maverick. Moreover, this is the first time two films with global box office receipts of over $1 billion have been nominated for Best Picture together.

All of the Best Actor nominations are first-timers, breaking an 88-year streak that dates back to the 7th Academy Awards. The four acting categories featured 16 first-time nominations, which was a record number in Oscar history.

For the first time since the 44th Academy Awards, 51 years ago, a movie was nominated for both best supporting actor and best supporting actress. For the first time since the 32nd Academy Awards 63 years ago, two different movies each got two acting nominations in the same category.

With his nomination for best live-action short film, Alfonso Cuarón tied Kenneth Branagh, who set the record the year before, as the second person to be nominated for seven different Oscars. Le Pupil, another nominee in the same category, is Disney+'s debut entry. Each of the following individuals received three nominations: Todd Field, Dan Kwan, Daniel Scheinert, Martin McDonagh, and Steven Spielberg. With the exception of Martin, who received three nominations for best costume design, best production design, and as a producer for best picture, all for Elvis, the others were up for best director, best original screenplay, and best picture.
