Everything Everywhere, All At Once Tops 2023 Critics Choice Movie Nominations

Everything Everywhere All At Once leads the films in the running for the 28th annual Critics Choice Awards, having won 14 nominations.

The film starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and James Hong, won Best Picture and Best Comedy, along with several nods.

Both Yeoh and Quan were nominated for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor respectively.

Fellow film stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu are both up for Best Supporting Actress, and the cast picked up a nomination for Best Actor Ensemble.

Other films to clinch the lead in the top category are Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees Of Inisherin, starring Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell, which also received nine nominations in total.

The film takes Babylon, Elvis, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, RRR, Tar, Women Talking and Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans in the best picture category.

The hit films Avatar: The Way Of Water and Top Gun: Maverick were also nominated for Best Picture.

The CCA said there were 11 top nominees this year due to an exact tie.

McDonagh will face other industry heavyweights including Spielberg, James Cameron and Baz Luhrmann in the Best Director category.

Elsewhere in the acting categories, Brendan Fraser scored his second Best Actor of the Week nomination for his widely acclaimed film The Whale.

He is joined in the category by Farrell, Bill Nighy, Paul Mescal, Austin Butler and Tom Cruise.

Alongside Yeoh, CCA Best Actress nominees include Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, Danielle Deadwyler, Margot Robbie and Michelle Williams.

Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Lady Gaga are set to face off for the second time after all being nominated in the CCA’s Best Song category.

The trio were all nominated for the equivalent Golden Globe Award earlier this week.

“We are very proud to recognize this incredible group of films and the people who made them possible,” said Joey Berlin, CEO of the Critics Choice Association.

“This recognition comes from a diverse group of more than 600 entertainment critics and journalists who share their views on film and television with millions of people every day, all year round.

“Our collective opinion of the year’s greatest achievements is truly meaningful to the creative community.”

Last week, American comedy show Abbott Elementary led the contenders in the 28th annual Critics Choice Awards, after picking up six nominations.

It was also announced that Hollywood icon Jeff Bridges will receive the Critics Choice Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s show.

All winners will be revealed at the star-studded ceremony at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 15, which is due to begin at 3am UK time.

Historically, the Critics Choice Awards are the most accurate predictor of Oscar nominations.
