Oscars 2023 Winners List: The year’s biggest award show has just concluded. The 95th Oscars just finished, thoroughly dominating Everything Everywhere All At Once. The movie swept away seven awards out of the 11 nominations.
India also had a very eventful Oscars winning two of their own. Naatu Naatu won the award for Best Original Song, while The Elephant Whisperer won the award for Best Documentary Shorts.
Shaunak Sen’s All That Breathes, another Indian nomination in the Best Documentary Feature Film category, lost to Navalny. It was quite a shock for all the Indians as All That Breathes was a heavy favorite and could have won.
Check out the complete list of winners down below:
Winner – Everything Everywhere All At Once
Everything Everywhere All At Once won an intense competition and beat movies like All Quiet on the Western Front, Elvis, The Banshees of Inisherin, The Fabelmans, and Tar.
The movie was a heavy favorite while going into the Oscars. Many fans loved the movie’s acidic concept, unlike anything they had seen before.
Winner – Michelle Yeoh – Everything Everywhere All at Once
Once again, Everything Everywhere All at Once emerged as the winner in the form of Michelle Yeoh. She defeated Cate Blanchett, Ana De Armas, Andrea Riseborough, and Michelle Williams for the award.
I think Cate Blanchett should have won the award, but again, Michelle Yeoh did an exceptional job.
Winner – Brendan Fraser – The Whale
Brendan Fraser won a completely deserved award for the best actor for his role in The Whale. In this category, he beat Austin Butler, Collin Farrell, Paul Mescal, and Bill Nighy.
No one can say that Branden Fraser did not deserve this award. As he gave one of the best performances of all time as Charlie.
Winner – Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert – Everything Everywhere All at Once
The Daniel Brothers won the award for the best directors for giving us such an unforgetful ride. As I have said earlier, the movie was an acidic trip, which was only possible because of the movie’s direction. They did a tremendous job.
Other nominations were Todd Field for Tár, Martin McDonagh for The Banshees of Inisherin, Ruben Östlund for Triangle of Sadness, and Steven Spielberg for The Fabelmans.
Best Original Screenplay
Winner – Everything Everywhere All at Once – Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert
Once again, Everything Everywhere All at Once also emerged as the winner in this category. For my liking, The Banshees of Inisherin should have won the award in this category, but the work of the Daniel brothers was not that far off.
Best Original Song
Winner – “Naatu Naatu” (RRR)
Naatu Naatu emerged as the winner here and shut down many haters. The hate for the movie was mainly from India, which might be enough to shut them up. Naatu Naatu defeated some excellent songs for the award.

Winner – Everything Everywhere All at Once
Other Nominations – The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, Tar, Top Gun: Maverick
Winner – Top Gun: Maverick
Other Nominations – All Quiet on the Western Front, Avatar: The Way of Water, The Batman, Elvis
Once again, I would have preferred The Batman to win here, but Top Gun: Maverick was a completely new experience, and the sound was one of the main reasons.
