Last year’s indie sci-fi hit “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has come out on top of the nominations list for the 95th Academy Awards, after the contenders for the Oscars were announced on Tuesday.

Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan’s multiverse-hopping thriller scored a total of 11 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh, marking the first time an Asian actress has been nominated for the award.

“Everything…” was followed closely by “All Quiet on the Western Front,” a World War I epic, and “The Banshees of Inisherin,” a dark comedy set during the Irish civil war. Both films scored nine nominations, including Best Picture nods.

This year’s best picture race also includes the highest grossing films of the year: “Avatar: The Way of Water” and “Top Gun: Maverick,” as well as the musical biopic “Elvis.” The list also includes Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans”, Todd Field’s “Tár”, Ruben Östlund’s “Triangle of Sadness” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking.” (RT)
