Who Will Win and Who Should Win: Nominees for Best Picture at the 2023 Oscars

No Comments

Predicting who will walk out of the Dolby Theatre with the grandest prize in moviemaking that America can bestow can sometimes be a crapshoot. There is no consistent pattern in the last five films to win the Academy Awards for Best Picture — “CODA,” “Nomadland,” “Parasite,” “Green Book,” and “The Shape of Water” — and they alternate wildly between genres, ranging from a coming-of-age dramedy to a romantic fantasy.

This year, a widely assorted batch of films will likely pull different branches of the Academy into warring factions as they nominate their favorites. “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Avatar: The Way of Water” offer popcorn populism, while “Women Talking” and “Triangle of Sadness” showcase spare beauty. “Tár” and “The Banshees of Inisherin” provide artsy character portraits, and “All Quiet on the Western Front” delivers a dazzling remake. “The Fabelmans” aim for Oscar-baiting sweetness, and “Elvis” and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” present eye-dazzling spectacles. We believe that among this batch of strong contenders, some films will end up winning, and others ought to win.

The 2023 Oscar for Best Picture will be won by “The Fabelmans.”

Academy voters might get swept up in the ongoing battle between “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Avatar: The Way of Water” for Hollywood box office supremacy. They could lean towards either film to bolster their legacy. However, given the Academy’s track record with blockbusters, it’s much more likely that they will reward another film as the winner.

Hollywood likes stories about moviemaking more than anything, which is why “The Fabelmans” expects to achieve the best picture. “The Fabelmans” is the sort of movie that the Oscars truly adore – a story about a young movie maker who comes of age and becomes an artist, a loving mother who sees the genius in him, and a harried, working father who tries but fails to find the artist lying in wait in his son’s heart.

The already Oscar-winning legend Steven Spielberg directed the film, which is a light fictionalization of his childhood and how he fell in love with making movies. The movie also explores another topic that Hollywood loves – divorce, specifically a fictionalized version of the divorce between Spielberg’s parents. Our own reviewer, Reuben Baron, adored the film, echoing the movie’s 92% approval score on Rotten Tomatoes. Therefore, it won’t be surprising if “The Fabelmans” step up to the plate and end up snagging the top honor at this year’s ceremony.

Everything Everywhere All At Once should win the 2023 Oscar for Best Picture.

There is no movie out there like “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” co-directed and written by Daniel Kwan with Daniel Scheinert, known as The Daniels. It is one of the most visually stunning movies of the year, which is really saying something in a year that also gave us “Elvis” and “Avatar: The Way of Water.” It also has a thoughtful soul and an eclectic character group that genuinely makes you care for them. The movie has heart-stopping action, a lot of humor, and, at its very soul, the story of a woman who comes to realize her true potential and the importance of her family in every universe. There hasn’t been a better moviegoing experience this year. Therefore, “Everything Everywhere All At Once” should win the 2023 Oscar for Best Picture.

In “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh) realizes that she doesn’t want to live in a world without her daughter Joy (Stephanie Hsu) and travels to the end of the galaxy to find her. The movie is ultimately about motherly love, accepting the flaws of the people you love, and finding joy in an imperfect life. The film’s philosophy embodies kindness and caring, represented by Evelyn’s husband, Waymond (Ke Huy Quan in one of two comebacks of the year, alongside best actor fan-favorite Brendan Fraser). To believe in such a philosophy is quite a brave thing. Therefore, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” should win the 2023 Oscar for Best Picture.

“Everything Everywhere All At Once” should be the best picture of the year because it distills a million different emotions into a single experience in such a unique way that it feels like a tribute to the art of living itself, despite being a lot more complicated than its competitors, especially its ending.
