2023 Top Oscar contenders


Top Oscar contenders - documentary

"All That Breathes" is one of the standout 2022 documentary that makes the cut. Following two brothers in polluted New Delhi who help safeguard an endangered population of birds, it also serves as an ecological warning and a message about mankind's relationship with the natural world.

"Nalvany", a real-life thriller, has also gripped audiences this year as it chronicles the life of Putin opposition leader, Alexei Nalvany, and his unrelenting critique of soul-crushing 21st century Russia.

Top Oscar contenders - animated film

"The Sea Beast", "My Father's Dragon", and "Turning Red" have been standouts, but it's the new re-imagining of an old Walt Disney tale that has made it to No. 1 on every Top Ten list of best animated films this year. So bet the rent on "Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio".

Just up ahead, get your fill of Oscar trivia and fun facts, the complete list of 2023 nominees, plus related resources as the red carpet rolls out on another star-studded Oscar season.

DID YOU KNOW? Oscar trivia & fun facts

worst oscars ever?
1989: worst Oscars ever.

• There's good reason that stars holding the Oscar are surprised by its sheer weight. Each 24-karat gold-plated Oscar award stands 13.5 inches tall and weighs around 8 1/2 lbs. or about the equivalent of a gallon of milk.

The worst Oscars performance of all time goes to unlucky aspiring actress Eileen Bowman who appeared as Snow White during the 1989 show. She was there to entertain stars such as Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, and Sigourney Weaver who sat in the audience, dumbstruck. (An awkward duet with actor Rob Lowe didn't help.) The following day, The New York Times declared that the performance earned "a permanent place in the annals of Oscar embarrassments."

• In 1974, actor David Niven appeared to introduce the Best Picture nominees when a streaker stormed the stage and ran behind him. The witty British actor quickly remarked, "The only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping ... and showing his shortcomings.”

• Midnight Cowboy (1969) is the only X-rated film to ever win the Best Picture award.

• In 1940, The Los Angeles Times leaked the complete winners list the night before the ceremony. So Hollywood star Vivien Leigh, for example, arrived at the Oscars already aware that she had won Best Actress for "Gone with Wind" that year. Academy voting results have been a closely guarded secret ever since.
