Thank goodness: All winners will be announced live at the Oscars 2023

The 2022 Academy Awards were dramatic for a number of reasons, but leadership for the 2023 episode has promised to fix at least one of the ceremony’s most controversial moments.

New CEO Bill Kramer announced that the winners of all 23 categories will be announced live during the broadcast when the 95th Academy Awards takes place on March 12th. “I can confirm that all categories will be included in the live broadcast,” he said diversity on Tuesday.

At last year’s show, eight of the awards – makeup and hairstyling, film editing, production design, original score, documentary short, animated short and live action, and sound – were awarded the hour before the live broadcast began. Edited versions of the winners’ speeches were then included in the main show.

This decision drew strong criticism from many members of the industry, particularly members of those industries, as it seemed to indicate a hierarchy of which parts of the filmmaking process were valued higher. At the time, the academy’s awards committee was under pressure to trim about 45 minutes of the show, which was known to have run longer than its planned three-hour run.

The 94th Academy Awards – which will go down in Hollywood history for many other reasons, including the “Fan Favorite” category and Will Smith‘s slap – still ran over the specified time, clocking in at three hours and 40 minutes.

The news of this year’s return to normal, confirmed by Vanity Fair, reflects promises Kramer made earlier this year to fix some of the issues that plagued last year’s show. “We want all disciplines on the show to be equally recognized — that’s our goal,” Kramer told press in August.

Kramer, who took over as Academy CEO in July, also emphasized the Academy’s intention to announce producers and hosts for this year’s show much earlier than in previous years. And they kept that promise and announced it Glen Weiss and Ricky Kirshner as executive producers and showrunners in September and Jimmy Kimmel as host (for the third time) in early November.

Many details of the 95th Academy Awards have yet to be revealed, but Kramer continues to emphasize that his main goal is to “have a show that celebrates the crafts, the arts and sciences, and the collaborative nature of filmmaking,” as he says said Diversity. After last year’s tumultuous show, we’re assuming a majority of Academy members will welcome this choice.
