The much anticipated Oscars 2023 is just around the horizon. On Sunday, March 12, 2023, the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California, will host the prestigious award ceremony honouring the year’s best motion pictures. The 95th Academy Awards will be broadcast live on the ABC Network on March 12 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
The nominees for the Oscars 2023 were announced live on January 24, 2023, in a ceremony hosted by Allison Williams and Riz Ahmed. Batman, a 2022 fan-favourite superhero film starring Matt Reeves, has received three nominations for Best Visual Effects, Best Sound, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
The 2022 film The Batman did not receive enough recognition for its achievements in the Oscars 2023 categories of Best Cinematography and Best Score, which has caused quite a stir among fans since the 2023 Oscar nominations were revealed. This has sparked a flood of outraged responses on Twitter from internet users who were offended by the slight.
Twitter users are disappointed that The Batman did not receive nominations for Best Score and Best Cinematography for the Oscars in 2023.
The superhero film based on DC Comics is in direct competition with other huge hits, such as Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water, and Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, thanks to its three nominations for Best Visual Effects, Best Sound, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
Unhappy fans, however, criticised The Batman for receiving only three nominations for the Oscars in 2023 shortly after the nominations were made public on Twitter. A few online users also expressed their sincere belief that the film deserved greater praise for its outstanding photography and score.
Take a closer look at some of the fan tweets below:
Batman’s cinematographer was the much respected Greig Fraser. Fraser’s outstanding cinematography in Dune earned him the Best Cinematography Oscar the year before.
Renowned musician Michael Giacchino created Batman’s signature score. Giacchino previously won an Oscar for his work on the 2009 picture Up’s soundtrack.
