Mar 9, 2023

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revealed the shortlists for Documentary Feature, Documentary Short, Live Action Short, and Animated Short for 2023. As expected acclaimed films “All That Breathes” and “All the Beauty and All the Bloodshed” made the cut for the top category. Also expected, the popular Amazon Studios doc “Good Night, Oppy” did not. And, no, Taylor Swift’s extended music video for “All Too Well” is not coming close to earning an Oscar nomination in the Live Action Short category.
