Red carpet ready for return of the Oscars; 10 films up for best picture | Full list of nominees

LOS ANGELES — From the gowns and glitz to the speeches and surprises, Hollywood’s biggest night has big entertainment in store, including “one of the best openings of an Oscar show.”

Host Jimmy Kimmel will kick off the 2023 Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with an opening that is going to be a “moment,” producer Glenn Weiss promised in an interview with ABC News. The ceremony is set to begin at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT/5 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ABC.

Meanwhile, nominees are prepping their parade down the “red” carpet — a champagne color this year. Producers hope this break from a six-decade tradition — accompanied by a covered carpet and red drapes — creates the illusion of a more glamorous evening affair in the middle of the afternoon. Catch all of the red-carpet fashion plus interviews with celebs when special On The Red Carpet coverage begins at 4 p.m. ET/3 p.m. CT/1 p.m. PT.

Kimmel joked that “no blood will be shed” on the lightly colored carpet, an allusion to last year’s infamous “slap.” The 2022 moment is fair game for the veteran Oscar host, who will address it “in a comedic fashion” and “move on.”

“We don’t want to make this year about last year,” executive producer Molly McNearney said.

With 11 nominations and big wins at other major award shows, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has everyone talking.

The surprising sci-fi hit — which uses multiverses of hotdog fingers and googly-eyed rocks in a metaphor for the Asian-American immigrant experience — goes into the night as the favorite to win best picture, best director, best actress for Michelle Yeoh and best supporting actor for Ke Huy Quan.

Scroll down for the full list of 2023 Oscar nominations.

Irish friends-falling-out dark comedy “The Banshees of Inisherin” and World War II anti-war epic “All Quiet on the Western Front” are the second most nominated films, with nine nods each, including best picture. Other movies competing in the top category are blockbusters “Avatar: The Way of Water” and “Top Gun: Maverick;” eponymous biopic “Elvis;” Steven Spielberg’s movie-memoir “The Fabelmans;” psychological drama “Tár;” splashy social satire “Triangle of Sadness;” and true-story drama “Women Talking.”

Along with Yeoh and Quan, Angela Bassett stands out as an acting-category frontrunner for her supporting performance as the grieving Queen Ramonda in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” While it was not her first nomination, Bassett made history as her Oscar nod is Marvel Studio’s first in an acting category.

Best actor is harder to call, with Brendan Fraser (“The Whale”) and Austin Butler (“Elvis”) in the mix.

From Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) to M.M. Keeravaani’s “Naatu Naatu” (“RRR”), anticipation is building for performances of nominated songs. (Nominee Lady Gaga, on the other hand, will not sing “Hold My Hand,” from “Top Gun: Maverick” during the show due to scheduling conflicts).

Stars slated to hand out awards include Antonio Banderas, Halle Berry, Ariana DeBose, Harrison Ford, Andrew Garfield, Kate Hudson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Michael B. Jordan, Nicole Kidman, Janelle Monáe, Elizabeth Olsen, Pedro Pascal, Florence Pugh, John Travolta and more.
