However, Lady Gaga whose song Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick has also earned a nod in the Best Original song category, would not be performing, since she would not get time to rehearse for her act in the midst of shooting for the Joker sequel.

Jimmy Kimmel to address the Will Smith vs Chris Rock debacle in his monologue

Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the 95th Academy Awards, making a hattrick as the host of the prestigious ceremony. Kimmel is expected to address Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on stage last year at the 94th Academy Awards. As per USA Today, executive producer Molly McNearey, who is also Kimmel’s wife, reportedly said that they are going to address it and then move on. She explained that they do not want to make this year about last year, but it is certainly something that they can and will address in a ‘comedic fashion’.

All filmmakers to be honoured at Oscars 2023

Last year, awards for categories like film editing and animated shorts were handed out before the live telecast. However, this time around, all 23 categories will be announced during the show. Producer Glenn Weiss told the media portal that they will be paying a tribute to all the filmmakers at this year’s Academy Awards, and will make sure that everybody is a part of the process.
