Why Is It Called The Oscars?

The nominations for the 2023 Oscars have been announced and you know what that means...yes, of course, memes.

The 95th Academy Awards will take place on March 12th and who knows whether it will be as noteworthy as last years when Will Smith infamously slapped Chris Rock on stage after making a joke about his wife.

Regardless this year's nominations were announced at a ceremony at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, hosted by actors Alison Williams and Riz Ahmed.

The movies tipped for the top awards are Everything, Everywhere All At Once, Elvis, Banshees of Inisherin, Tár and The Whale with sequels such as Top Gun: Maverick, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever also being heavily nominated.
