The nominees are in for the 2023 Academy Awards, and actors Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams totally cracked up over one name on the list.

My Year Of Dicks made the newly-revealed list for best short animated film, and you could tell that Ahmed wasn't quite ready for it when he was reading out the names on Tuesday. The actor burst into laughter during the livestream, while Williams also started snickering.

"My Year of Dicks," he said, before everyone in the room started laughing.

Ahmed had to take a moment to compose himself before plunging ahead to read the final entry on the list: An Ostrich Told Me The World Is Fake And I Think I Believe it.

"No comment," Williams added after that moment.

The Oscar-nominated My Year Of Dicks is a short animated movie about a teenager trying to lose her virginity in the 1990s, and you can watch it online right now if you want.

There's a good chance you've seen at least a few of the other big nominees from this year's Academy Awards, even if you don't go for the arthouse stuff in theatres. Top Gun: Maverick, Elvis and Avatar: The Way Of Water were among the best picture nominees, while Disney's Turning Red and Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio made the list for best animated feature film.

Will Smith, who slapped Chris Rock before winning Best Actor last year, did not receive a nomination for his latest movie, Emancipation.
