Oscars 2023: date, how to watch, presenters, nominees
Tom Cruise looks down in Top Gun: Maverick.

After a long and strenuous awards season, it's nearly time for the 2023 Oscars. The best films of the past year will soon be awarded Oscars from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). This year marks the 95th edition of the ceremony, which is also referred to as the Academy Awards.

What will be the ceremony's most memorable moment? In 2022, the telecast became associated with a slap from Will Smith. In 2020, Bong Joon-ho and Parasite showed the world that subtitles should not stop a movie from receiving praise. Will there be an upset as big as the 1999 Oscars when Shakespeare in Love defeated Saving Private Ryan in Best Picture? The only way to find out is to watch!

5 Oscar-winning sci-fi movies you should watch
Interview: Director Alex Garland on Ex Machina

Everyone knows the Academy Awards have a bias against certain genres. Biopics, dramas, and epics are like catnip to voters, and the more tears a voter sheds, the more likely it is that they will vote for it. As a result, genres like horror and sci-fi rarely get recognized by the organization outside of technical categories like Visual Effects or Sound.

With Everything Everywhere All at Once poised to be the first science fiction film to win Best Picture at the 2023 Oscars, it's time to look back at the few sci-fi films besides 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars that managed to break through and win the coveted Academy Award in one or multiple categories. From a far-out adventure into the human body to a modern parable about the dangers of artificial intelligence, these films won Oscars for a reason and should be watched by an appreciative audience.

Mark Bridges on recreating Steven Spielberg’s youth in The Fabelmans
A child looks at a film in his hands in "The Fabelmans."

How to recreate the look of your youth? That's the dilemma that faced Steven Spielberg as he started to put together his autobiographical film, The Fabelmans. In telling a thinly veiled fictionalized account of his formative years in Arizona and, later, California, Spielberg relied on his usual collaborators -- composer John Williams and cinematographer Janusz Kamiński -- to help him out. Yet when it came to reconstructing what he and his family actually looked like during the 1960s, Spielberg reached out to a veteran costume designer Mark Bridges to recreate a pivotal time in the director's personal history

A previous Oscar nominee for his work on Phantom Thread, Bridges sat down with Digital Trends to talk about how his collaboration with the famous director, who his favorite character to design for was, and how he managed to work with Blue Velvet auteur David Lynch without ever actually meeting him.
