“Everything Everywhere All at Once,” the genre-defying, multiverse-jumping hit that’s dominated awards season so far, leads all films with 11 nominations.

It enters as the favorite for best picture following wins at multiple Oscars bellwethers, including last month’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. However, the film faces competition from Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical “The Fabelmans”; McDonaugh’s dark comedy “The Banshees of Inisherin”; James Cameron’s titanic splash “Avatar: The Way of Water”; and the visually stunning, Tom Cruise-led “Top Gun: Maverick.”

“Everything Everywhere” star Michelle Yeoh is nominated for best actress, as is “Tár” star Cate Blanchett. Brendan Fraser’s portrayal of a severely obese man in “The Whale” and Austin Butler’s performance as the title music icon in “Elvis” have them in the mix for best actor.

One heavy favorite is “Everything Everywhere” star Ke Huy Quan, who already won honors at the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards and Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Spielberg, McDonaugh and the “Everything Everywhere” duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert are among the best director nominees.
