Oscars 2023: Naatu Naatu (RRR), nominated in the best original song category

The 95th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Los Angeles. “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” a twist-filled sci-fi film garners 11 nominations. ‘All Quiet on the Western Front,’ a World War I epic, and ‘The Banshees of Inisherin,’ the story of a friendship set against the backdrop of the Irish Civil War, both garnered nine nominations.

Among the Oscar nominees for Best Picture are the two biggest blockbusters of the year, “Avatar: The Way of the Water” and “Top Gun: Maverick.” Also named are “Elvis”, a biopic on Elvis Presley which seduced the public last summer in the United States, the semi-autobiographical film “The Fabelmans” by Steven Spielberg, “Tár”, a drama about a chef violent orchestra, “Women Talking,” a look at the residents of a repressive religious community, and “Triangle of Sadness,” a parody that takes place partly on a mega-yacht.

Note that the song Naatu Naatu, from the Indian film RRR, which has already won the Golden Globe for best original song, is also on the list of nominees in the Best Original Song category of the Academy of Oscars. This year, the ceremony will be presented by Jimmy Kimmel, who will succeed Chris Rock. The latter had been the victim of a slap from Will Smith in 2022.
