Another major contender is “Poor Things,” Yorgos Lanthimos’s adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s novel of the same name. The film is a wild and wacky ride, and has been praised for its originality and humor. With 11 nominations, it’s sure to be a major player on Oscar night.

Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” is also in the mix, with 10 nominations. The film, based on David Grann’s book of the same name, tells the story of the murders of Osage Nation members in 1920s Oklahoma. With Scorsese at the helm and a star-studded cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is a film to watch.
