LOS ANGELES -- "Anatomy of a Fall" has won the Oscar for best original screenplay this year and is nominated for four other awards, including best picture, best director and best actress for Sandra Hüller.

No list of the greatest film actors of 2023 would be complete without Hüller, who also stars in the Oscar-nominated "Zone of Interest." She burns up the screen in Justine Triet's forensic anatomy of a marriage.

Told through the compulsively watchable tale of a wife on trial for killing her husband by pushing him out a window, the film pins you to your seat.

As a successful author forced to deal with the failure of her far-from-better half Samuel Theis, Hüller gives a performance you can't shake.

The same goes for the devilishly clever script by Triet and her husband Arthur Harari, who merge a brilliant battle of the sexes with a courtroom thriller for the ages.

Now that all the Academy Awards have been handed out, it's time to party!

Watch "Live With Kelly and Mark: After the Oscars," live from the Oscars stage at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Monday at 9 a.m.
