The Academy Announces Shortlists for Oscar Nominations

The Academy

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences unveiled shortlists for 10 categories for the next Academy Awards ceremony. A few of the shortlists include potential nominees for categories such as Documentary Feature Film, Best Animated Short, and International Feature Film. As for the crew, the Academy shared shortlists Music (Original Score and Original Song), Sound and Visual Effects, and Makeup and Hairstyling.

Several awards season favorites made the cut, including BarbieKillers of the Flower Moon, Poor Things, Oppenheimer, and The Color Purple (return to BTL next week for our extensive coverage). Barbie and The Color Purple were shortlisted for a few of their wonderful musical numbers, while John Carney’s beloved Flora and Son alone was shortlisted for two original songs. Kudos to composer and songwriter Gary Clark for the acclaimed Flora and Son contributions.

In the visual effects department, the beloved Godzilla Minus One notably made the cut, as did the final Indiana Jones installment, and the overlooked sci-fi thriller, The Creator, received well-deserved recognization for making movies twice its budget size look quaint by comparison.

Voting for the nominees begins January 11th, 2024, and concludes five days later. On Tuesday, January 23rd, artists and audiences will learn of this year’s Academy Award nominees.
