2023 Oscars Red Carpet Photos – Billboard


The 95th Academy Awards took over the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood on Sunday (March 12), airing live on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel returned as Oscars host this year, marking the third time the late-night show host helmed the Academy Awards.

Some of music’s biggest stars were present and accounted for, including Lady Gaga and Rihanna (both nominated in the best original song category) and Janelle Monáe and Halle Bailey. The pop queens — both of whom have headlined the Super Bowl Halftime Show — are performers during the 2023 Oscars broadcast.

Lenny Kravitz – who performs the In Memoriam segment during the 2023 telecast – also walked the carpet, in addition to Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, who was nominated alongside Ryan Lott and Mitski in the best original song category for “This Is A Life” from Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Everything Everywhere All At Once, which earned 11 nods, is the most-nominated film this year. “All of our mothers are sometimes overlooked, and it was time to show that all of our moms are superheroes,” said best actress nominee Michelle Yeoh on the champagne carpet ahead of the show.

Baz Luhrmann’s biopic on 20th century icon Elvis Presley, Elvis, was nominated for eight Oscars, including best picture; it also earned a best actor nomination for Austin Butler, who portrayed the King of Rock & Roll. “It feels like a dream come true,” said Butler of the nomination during the pre-show. “That’s like choosing your favorite kid – I can’t choose one,” Butler said when asked to name a favorite song from Presley.
