What movies will win the Oscars 2023?
The 95th Academy Awards will see the best films from the past year compete for a coveted Oscar statuette.
This year’s ceremony, set to be held in the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday March 12, will also reflect on the history of the awards to celebrate the milestone birthday.
“The 95th gives us a great opportunity to knit together the incredible legacy of the Oscars, the diverse and powerful work we do across the Academy, our vision for the future,” said Academy CEO Bill Kramer.
The Oscars represent the finale of the film award season, coming after the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards, Satellite Awards, the BAFTAs and others.
As such, it’s possible to predict what films and performances are tipped as the favourites heading into the Oscars. While the Academy is known for throwing in the occasional wildcard (yes, 2016’s Suicide Squad is an Oscar winner), we’ve assembled the betting odds and likely winners within the main categories based on the 2023 award season.
