Documentary, International, Shorts, More – Deadline


It has been apparent in talking to Oscar voters across many branches that the one title that keeps coming up at the top of their lists is Netflix’s All Quiet on the Western Front, which is the German entry for International Feature Film. That it has strength across the board though is borne out with the Oscar shortlists in 10 categories released Wednesday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

All Quiet was named on five of them — in every category it could have been eligible (Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound, Visual Effects, Music Score, International Film), and is tied with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to lead the lists.

From director Edward Berger, the German film is the first major theatrical featureof the Erich Maria Remarque World War I classic since Lewis Milestone’s 1930 Best Picture Oscar winner. Based on the buzz I have been getting ever since Netflix began screening it in early fall, it would seem to be a good bet for Academy love in several categories including Best Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay once nominations for the 95th Academy Awards are announced January 24.

Ryan Coogler’s sequel to his multi-Oscar-nominated 2018 Marvel sensation Black Panther had an impressive showing as well today and looks to be formidable at least in the crafts categories, where it also scored in every possible contest it is eligible (Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound, Visual Effects, Music Score and Rhianna’s song “Lift Me Up”).

Closely behind in number of mentions is James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water, which looks poised to repeat the multiple nominations his 2009 Avatar got. It is on four lists tpday for Music Score, Song — “Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength)” — Sound and Visual Effects.

Babylon, The Batman, Everything Everywhere All at Once and Top Gun: Maverick are mentioned on three lists apiece. (See all 10 shortlists below.)

These shortlists are hotly anticipated to see which way the winds might be blowing Oscar-wise, and there aren’t a whole lot of surprises overall today. (My colleagues Matt Carey and Nancy Tartaglione will analyze and break down the Documentary and International Film categories, respectively, later today.) I was surprised and disappointed at the omission of Amazon and Amblin’s wonderful Good Night Oppy, which was AWOL among the 15 semifinalists for Documentary Feature. Stalwarts Italy and Spain missed out in the International Film category among the 15 finalists there, but the list is mostly the best-known contenders since the Cannes Film Festival set the table in May.

The Original Song category with the likes of Rhianna, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and other well-known pop stars seems headed for a final five that will be a collision of current musical giants, but never, never count out Diane Warren, the recipient of an Honorary Oscar last month and now advancing to a possible 14th nomination in the category with “Applause,” from the little-seen docu Tell It Like a Woman.

Voting for nominations begins January 12 with ballots due in by January 17. Nominations will be revealed in a return to a live presentation, with the 95th Oscars to be held at the Dolby Theater on March 12, 2023, airing again on ABC.
