The 95th Academy Awards – Reviews Of Nominated Films & List Of All Nominees

Despite being less & less interested in the Oscars in recent years, I still try to watch as many nominees as I can. It’s been difficult the past few years since no longer being able to make as many cinema trips but did manage several trips so far this year plus quite a few have been on streaming services. Not seen some of the big nominees yet but think I’ve seen the ones that will win a lot of the awards & saw quite a few documentaries & shorts.

I’ve managed to review all I’ve seen. Here are my links to my reviews, ranked from my favorite to least favorite film. But I have to say that none of this year’s nominees will be all-time favorite films for me, which is often the case with nominees the past several years…:

1. Top Gun: Maverick
2. Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio
3. The Banshees of Inisherin
4. Elvis
5. All Quiet on the Western Front
6. Empire of Light
7. Marcel the Shell With Shoes On
8. Everything Everywhere All at Once
9. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
10. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
11. The Elephant Whisperers
12. A House Made of Splinters
13. Fire of Love
14. Navalny
15. Turning Red
16. The Sea Beast
17. All That Breathes
18. The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse
19. The Batman
20. Le Pupille
21. The Martha Mitchell Effect
22. The Flying Sailor
23. Blonde

Below are all the nominees. I don’t care too much who wins this year. I’ll put a ❤️ by my favorite/the one I want to win & a 🏆 by the one I think will win. Apologies if you’re reading this on something that doesn’t show those emojis (should be fine as this blog only has like 1 reader). 😉
