The holiday season may be over, but awards season is just heating up. The Golden Globes and Emmy Awards have been given out, and the next major event on the calendar is the Academy Awards. But who’s competing, and who is staying home this year?

The 2024 Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and as expected, Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed blockbuster about the creation of the atomic bomb, Oppenheimer, leads the pack. The other half of the “Barbenheimer” phenomenon, Barbie, did well, too, getting nominations in the Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor categories.

Other movies that were recognized include Alexander Payne’s new Christmas classic The Holdovers with Paul Giamatti, Yorgos Lanthimos’ Lady Frankenstein sex comedy Poor Things with Emma Stone and Mark Ruffalo, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon with Leonardo Di Caprio and Robert De Niro, and Bradley Cooper’s biopic Maestro starring the actor as the great composer Leonard Bernstein.

7 best movie performances of 2023
Andrew Scott stands half-turned in All of Us Strangers.

It’s been a banner year for movies. Putting aside the uncertainty and turmoil caused by the year’s Hollywood labor strikes, 2023 has delivered more great movies than any other year in recent memory. The same goes for the year’s screen performances — of which there have been so many that putting together a list like this feels like a bit of a foolhardy endeavor. After all, how can one talk about this year’s big-screen performances without mentioning Charles Melton’s heartbreaking, fragile turn in May December, Cailee Spaeny’s time-bending, quietly expressive lead performance in Priscilla, or Rachel McAdams' spellbinding supporting work in Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret.

What about Teo Yoo and John Magaro’s dueling performances in Past Lives? They are so full of insecurity and yearning that they make the act of rooting for one over the other an impossible task. And that’s to say nothing of Adam Driver and Penelope Cruz’s colossal lead turns in Michael Mann’s Ferrari, without which the film would fizzle and fail. Suffice it to say, there were many worthy contenders left off this list. At the same time, it’s hard to think about 2023 without considering the actors and performances listed below.

5 best dramas of 2023, ranked
Four brothers sit or stand alongside a fence.

This has been a fantastic year in film, especially for dramas. Superhero films have dominated the box office for nearly 20 years. Yet, a historical drama, Oppenheimer, grossed more at the worldwide box office than the year's highest-grossing comic book movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. If you told someone that during The Avengers era, they wouldn't believe you.

Not every drama had to dominate the box office like Oppenheimer to be called a success. Many critically acclaimed dramas have garnered recognition at some of the industry's top award shows. Other dramas have been popular on streaming, where they found a new audience. Below, we selected five of the best 2023 dramas and where you can watch them. Our picks include Oppenheimer, a riveting courtroom thriller, and a wrestling drama that will break your heart.

Michael Fassbender wears a bucket hat in The Killer.

There ended up being a fair number of unique, pulse-pounding thrillers released this year. While not all of 2023’s best nail-biters were released in the same fashion or welcomed quite as well as others, either, each managed to offer completely different experiences to those who pressed play or took the time out to see them in the theater. Now, with the year in the midst of winding down, it’s worth looking back at some of 2023’s greatest cinematic offerings and honoring the ones that have made the biggest lasting impressions.

With that in mind, here are the year's five best thrillers.
