The Academy Award nominations have been revealed



The film industry’s most prestigious night of nights is almost here, and the nominations have been revealed

The indie sci-fi comedy drama, “Everything Everywhere All At Once”, scored the most Academy Award nominations, with 11 in total.

It was closely followed by “All Quiet on the Western Front”.

Not far behind were fan favourites including “Elvis”, “Top Gun: Maverick”, and the recent “Black Panther” and “Avatar” films.

Streaming services have not had as strong a year, with Netflix’s “All Quiet On The Western Front” the only nominee from a streaming service in the top category.

There has been an extremely strong showing for Irish talent this year. “The Quiet Girl” is recognised in the best international feature category.

Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, Paul Mescal are all in contention for Best Actor and Austin Butler scored his first ever Oscars nomination for his role as Elvis Presley.

And when it comes to Best Actress Cate Blanchett, Andrea Riseborough and Michelle Williams are leading the pack alongside Ana de Armas, who has been nominated for the first time.

Indian action epic “RRR” stands a strong chance of beating Rihanna and Lady Gaga to best original song.

The catchy Naatu Naatu has already won the Golden Globe, and is very likely to repeat its success at the Oscars.

The event all happens on March 12, when you can find out which stars will be taking home the iconic gold Oscar statuette.

Say goodbye to sharing Netflix with your friends



Netflix announces new tech to stop password sharing

The days of sharing a Netflix account with your friends are quickly coming to an end.

The streaming giant is set to introduce new tech which will prevent multiple households leeching off one subscription.

Execs believe around 100 million homes engage in the practice, which the company says “undermines” its ability to invest and improve content.

It’s been a rough 12 months for Netflix.

Last year, the company recorded it first subscriber loss in more than a decade.

While no exact date has been set for the worldwide rollout of the new policy, it could begin as early as March.

Users will be required to have their own account and login, unless you live in the same household as someone who has an account.

It follows a number of trials and introductions Netflix made throughout 2022.

“While our terms of use limit use of Netflix to a household, we recognise this is a change for members who share their account more broadly,” Netflix said.

“So we’ve worked hard to build additional new features that improve the Netflix experience, including the ability for members to review which devices are using their account and to transfer a profile to a new account.”
