The 2023 Oscars will fix a much-heralded change made at this year’s awards ceremony.
It was announced by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences CEO Bill Kramer that the televised event will once again feature all 23 categories after eight of them were removed from the 2022 broadcast.
Categories not shown during the event included Original Score, Make-up and Hairstyling, Documentary, Film Editing, Production Design, Animated Short, Live-Action Short and Sound.
In order to shorten the running time of the event, the trophies were presented as the participants entered the venue where the Oscars were held.
That’s what Kramer said on Tuesday (November 29) via diversity: “We are committed to hosting a show that celebrates the crafts, the arts and sciences, and the collaborative nature of filmmaking.
“That is precisely the Academy’s mission, and I am very confident that we can make a show that celebrates all components of filmmaking in a fun and engaging way.”
He said the academy was “thrilled to be able to broadcast all categories”.
The 2023 ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the third time. Of his appointment, Kramer said, “I love having someone host the show who is knowledgeable about live television. I think that’s so critical.”
The nominations are due to be announced on January 24th, with the event taking place on March 12th.
Last year’s winners included KODAJane Campion (The power of the dog), Jessica Chastain (Tammy Faye’s eyes) and Will Smith (King Richard).
