Everything Everywhere All at Once and Banshees of Inisherin lead the Oscar nominations – as Top Gun gets five nods including Best Picture – giving producer Tom Cruise chance for first ever Academy Award

Top Gun: Maverick has been nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, in a sign that Hollywood is finally listening to audiences and honoring box office hits instead of arthouse favorites.

The movie starring Tom Cruise is nominated for Best Picture along with Elvis, Avatar: The Way of Water, All Quiet on the Western Front and The Fabelmans at the 95th Academy Awards, which will be hosted on March 12 by Jimmy Kimmel. 

While Cruise missed out on a nomination for Best Actor, the nomination for Best Picture could bring him his first Academy Award.  

Everything Everywhere All at Once won ten nominations and The Banshees of Inisherin won eight nominations. The two films swept the Golden Globes earlier this month. 

Elvis, by Baz Luhrmann, won seven nominations, including one for Austin Butler.
