January 29th, 2023And the Oscar Nominees Are …

For many, March is all about college basketball. But for movie lovers like us, this March is all about the Oscars®. We’ve been counting down the days to the announcement of the nominees and speculating which amazing movies will make the coveted Best Picture list — and return to the big screen as part of our AMC Best Picture Showcase.

Well the Academy Awards made the nominations official, and the Oscar nominees are…

Best Picture

AMC is proud to present nine of the Best Picture nominees back on the big screen as part of the AMC Best Picture Showcase from January 24th – March 12th. This year, seven of the nominees were selected as AMC Artisan Films, which recognizes films that are driven by innovators in cinema and encourage discussion, with fresh and diverse perspectives.

And as you would imagine, our Staff selected most of these nominees as our favorite movies of the year, but only one can win Best Picture.
