The 95th Academy Awards will be hosted by late night chat show host Jimmy Kimmel and are being held at the regular venue of the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. 

Top Gun: Maverick has been nominated for six 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.

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

However, Everything Everywhere All At Once led the pack with the most nominations with 11 and The Banshees of Inisherin earned nine nominations. The two films swept the Golden Globes earlier this month.

. Top Gun: Maverick has been nominated for six Oscars including Best Picture

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

Elvis, by Baz Luhrmann, has eight nominations, including one for Austin Butler. 

Best Actress at the Oscars will be a toss-up between Cate Blanchett in Tar and Michelle Yeoh, who won the award at the Golden Globes for her performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once. 

Ana De Armas also earned a nomination for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in Blonde.  

While Cruise missed out on a nomination for Best Actor, Austin Butler (Elvis)  Brendan Fraser (The Whale) and Bill Nighy (Living) all received nods. 

All Quiet On The Western Front, a German-produced film, earned multiple nominations, as did Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, including Best Original Song.

Angela Bassett is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and as is Jamie Lee Curtis for Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Winners will be voted on by the roughly 10,000 actors, producers, directors and film craftspeople who make up the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The academy added more women and people of color to its ranks after the #OscarsSoWhite uproars of 2015 and 2016, and it increased membership from outside the United States.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences will surely celebrate a best-picture field populated with blockbusters; according to data firm Comscore, their collective domestic box office of $1.574 billion is the most ever at the time of nominations. 

Last year’s awards had been looking like a comeback edition before ‘the slap’ came to define the ceremony. In the aftermath, the academy banned Will Smith from attending for the next 10 years. 

Though he could have still been nominated, Smith’s performance as a runaway slave in Emancipation didn’t catch on with voters.

But larger concerns are swirling around the movie business. Last year saw flashes of triumphant resurrection for theaters, like the success of Top Gun: Maverick, but less stellar results for most dramas.

Partially due to an inconsistent stream of major releases, ticket sales for the year recovered only about 70percent of pre-pandemic business. 

Stocks for streaming services, meanwhile have plunged as Wall Street looked to streaming services to earn profits, not just add subscribers.

Last year’s Oscar broadcast drew 16.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen, up from the record-low audience of 10.5 million for the pandemic-marred 2021 telecast.
