Oscar Predictions 2023: Spoiler, Everything, Everywhere All At Once is going to do very well

I will be honest, I think this is the easiest Oscars to predict in absolute yonks. Bar one or two categories, I firmly believe the rest are easy locks. So lets so what I chose and if I am right.

Best Picture

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Momentum is a hell of a thing, and for months, EEAAO has been building and building. It would be an absolute shocker if it didn’t come away with not only this but a tonne of other awards. It is going to be a big night.

Best Director

Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan – Everything Everywhere All at Once

There are not many pairs of Best Director winners out there, but I and let’s be honest, everyone feels it is happening this year. If it were me, I would have gone with Spielberg, out of those nominated, but I love The Fabelmans so…

Best Actor

Brendan Fraser – The Whale

I know Butler had the international votes, but surely we can’t be seeing another biopic of a singer win Best Actor. No offence to Malek a few years ago, but nah. Fraser or Farrell deserve this with my head going with Fraser as he has been a front runner for so long and this is the Oscars sere the favourites from the start will win.

Best Actress

Michelle Yeoh – Everything Everywhere All at Once

After all the hullabaloo over Risenborough, she will be a non-factor here. It is Yeoh or Blanchett and with the outpouring of love for Yeoh in EEAAO, it really is a hard push to think that Blanchett will take it from Yeoh.

Best Supporting Actor

Ke Huy Quan – Everything Everywhere All at Once

I mean who else really? Easiest category to pick.

Best Supporting Actress

Jamie Lee Curtis – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Sorry to be that guy, but they are handing this to Jamie Lee Curtis. Does she deserve it for this role? Of course not, but she is going to get it. I guess you didn’t believe me when I said EEAAO was coming for all of the big ones.

Best Original Screenplay

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Guess who?

Best Adapted Screenplay

Women Talking

Sarah Polley deserves something for Women Talking, so the worst they can do is give her Adapted. Again another one that is long in the making.


All Quiet on the Western Front

EEAAO may win the big awards, but AQOTWF is after the technicals with the odd ones in there to flesh out the winners.

Costume Design

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Babylon amd Elvis can effectively do one here, there amd everywhere. I would be amazed if Wakanda Forever didn’t win.

Film Editing

Everything Everywhere All at Once

I wouldn’t necessarily give it Best Editing, but the word of mouth about it getting it has been too strong. There are countless films I would have put there instead. But like I said. It is taking a lot of awards.

Makeup and Hairstyling

The Whale

With the amount of effort put into Frasers makeup and for it to look as good as it does considering he is in practically every shot of the film, then yeah, I would not be surprised at The Whale winning here. Sure Elvis and Babylon have alot of characters with work done due to the era they are set. But The Whale lives and dies by how Fraser looks. If it doesn’t look good, then the film is on the floor.

Production Design

All Quiet on the Western Front

With the push that AQOTWF was getting, you had to know that if it was going to come home with something, which is why I focused a little on it getting the more technical awards. While it is another war film, the production design of it in those trenches etc are sublime. I really think this is the year we begin to move away from falling over films about Old Hollywood and biopics.

Original Score


Honestly, a toss up to guess what could win here. I have gone with Babylon as it has made the most noise from what I am aware of.

Original Song

RRR (“Naatu Naatu”)

RRR was coming away with something and when it won at the Golden Globes, I think everything nailed it in for Song here, another very easy choice that only a shock would have it not win.

Best Sound

Top Gun: Maverick

Pretty much the same as RRR, Top Gun: Maverick was going to come away with something. It was just a matter of what and with Sound, this was the easy one to give it.

Best Visual Effects

Avatar: The Way of Water

Copy and paste for the last two. If you are going to give The Way of Water anything it is this category, it deserves it, but pretty much nothing else beyond that.

Animated Feature

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

How long as this one been a nailed, bolted and welded in for? Puss in Boots is the more enjoyable film (in my eyes) but Pinocchio was always going to win here, get out of town if you think otherwise.

Documentary Feature


Another that I just cannot imagine any other film winning in place of it, despite liking them more. This has been up and around there for the entire time since it was shortlisted and it would be another shocker for it not to win.

International Feature

All Quiet on the Western Front

Copy and paste my lads, copy and paste. It shouldn’t win as The Quiet Girl is the far better film, but it will. It is the curse of the strong International Film that is popular enough to get into the Best Picture shortlist, but not to win. So it has to win Best International.

Animated Short

My Year of Dicks

This one is just for me, I am pretty certain it won’t win, but dammit if it wasn’t an interesting short and it deserves some flowers.

Documentary Short

How Do You Measure a Year

Same again really. I loved How Do You Measure a Year and sure The Elephant Whisperers are the by far odds on favourites, but I am a sentimental sod at heart and love an upset.

Live Action Short

An Irish Goodbye

Tough one, this or La Pupille for me. But I am a Northern Irish lad, so I am going bold for the Northern Irish pick. Go and get it!

Thats all for this year on The Oscars, I might come back and check how I did, but I am pretty confident.

Support Us

I am but a small website in this big wide world. As much as I would love to make this website a big and wonderful entity. That would bring in more costs. So, for now all I hope is to make Upcoming On Screen self-sufficient. Well enough to where any website fees are less of a worry for me in the future. You can support the website below…

Our other method if through the wonderful Buy us a Coffee feature, but seeing as we are not the biggest fans of coffee, a pizza will do!
