96th Academy Award Nominations LIVE!

It’s finally time, folks! The 96th Academy Awards are finally upon us! Are we looking at a race between Barbie and Oppenheimer? Will any of our contenders over or underperform? And will we get an “I’m Just Ken” performance at the Oscars? Time will tell. Now, normally I present this announcement as a live blog, posting immediately as they’re announced. However, The Sacred Wall’s hosting platform has been having issues with refreshing recently. I’m trying to get that bug fixed by the actual ceremony, but as of now, I am simply doing a write-up waiting for Good Morning America to start and will post the entire list immediately after it’s announced. Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter when the announcement is posted. What matters is that we finally know who the Academy believes were the best of the best in 2023. I’ll be back later today with a write-up on all the nominees. Until then, I hope you’re ready for an exciting season!
