Top Gun: Maverick has been nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Oscars in a sign that Hollywood is finally listening to audiences and honoring box office hits instead of arthouse favorites.

The movie starring Tom Cruise is nominated along with Elvis, Avatar: The Way of Water, All Quiet on the Western Front and The Fabelmans. 

Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Banshees of Inisherin are also nominated for Best Picture. 

Best Actress will be a toss-up between Cate Blanchett in Tar and Michelle Yeogh, who won the award at the Golden Globes for her performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once. 

Tom Cruise missed out on a nomination for Best Actor, with Austin Butler (Elvis)  Brendan Fraser (The Whale) leading the category instead. 

One film that received no nominations was The Woman King, starring Viola Davis.

Another critics’ favorite is The Banshees of Inisherin, starring Colin Farrell 

 The awards ceremony will be hosted on March 12 by Jimmy Kimmel. Allison Williams and Riz Ahmed announced the nominees on Tuesday morning. 

Only some have been announced so far, including Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay and Best Sound. 

Along with Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Banshees of Inisher won multiple nominations. 

Over the last five years, ratings for the once-adored show have steadily plummeted. 

Last year’s drama with Will Smith and Chris Rock revived the flailing numbers, but it also made the prestigious event into a mockery. 

This year’s awards season kicked off with the Golden Globes on January 10. 

Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans won Best Picture, with The Banshees of Inisherin winning Best Picture: Musical/Comedy. 

Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for her performance in Tár, while Austin Butler won Best Actor for his role in the Elvis biopic.

Box office hit Top Gun: Maverick starring Tom Cruise. The movie was snubbed by the Globes

Angela Bassett won Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Key Huy Quan won Best Supporting Actor for Everything Everywhere All At Once. 

Top Gun: Maverick, one of the highest grossing films of the last few years, was snubbed at the Globes. 

Kimmel previously hosted the event in 2017 and 2018, when ratings were considerably higher than in recent years.
