As well as nods for Yeoh and her supporting co-stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Stephanie Hsu and Ke Huy Quan, the film is up for best picture, director (for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), costume design, editing, original song, original score and original screenplay.
In the nominations, which were revealed in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, Banshees took nods for best picture, directing, editing, original screenplay, leading actor (for Farrell), supporting actor (for both Gleeson and Barry Keoghan), supporting actress (for Kerry Condon), production design and original score.
The high-octane belated sequel starring Tom Cruise also over-performed with six nominations, including one for adapted screenplay, though there was no fourth nod for Cruise himself.
Instead, those shortlisted for best actor were Farrell, fellow Irishman Paul Mescal (for Aftersun), Austin Butler (for Elvis), Brendan Fraser (for The Whale) and Bill Nighy (for Living).
There were surprises in the best actress field, with Blanchett and Yeoh competing against Ana de Armas for her role as Marilyn Monroe in Blonde, Michelle Williams for The Fabelmans and Andrea Riseborough in the little-seen To Leslie.
The Fabelmans ended up with seven Oscar nominations: best picture, director, original screenplay, actress, supporting actor (for Judd Hirsch), original score and production design.
Nine of the 10 are also first-time nominees, the exception being Hirsch, now 87, who was last nominated 42 years ago.
