“Oppenheimer” Dominates with 13 Nominations as Surprises Abound in 2024 Oscar Nominations

Oscar Nominations 2024

The unveiling of the 2024 Oscar nominations today showcased “Oppenheimer” as the frontrunner with an impressive 13 nods, closely trailed by “Poor Things” with 11. In the aftermath of the “Barbenheimer” craze surrounding “Barbie” and Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic, this year’s 96th annual Academy Awards promise to be a compelling celebration of cinematic excellence.

However, the Oscar nominations announcement held its share of unexpected twists. Greta Gerwig, the director of “Barbie,” was notably absent from the Best Director category, while she and Noah Baumbach secured Oscar nominations for the film’s adapted screenplay. Margot Robbie, the star and producer of the Best Picture Oscar nominations, also missed out on an acting nomination, prompting disappointment from Ryan Gosling, who was nominated for his role as Ken. Notably, Leonardo DiCaprio, the lead in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” did not secure an acting nod this year.

Amidst the surprises, Lily Gladstone made history by becoming the first Native American to receive a Best Actress Oscar nominations for her role alongside DiCaprio. America Ferrera, who was previously overlooked for a Golden Globe, clinched a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominations for her performance in “Barbie,” and Justine Triet secured the eighth-ever Best Director Oscar nominations for “Anatomy of a Fall.” The full list of this year’s Oscar nominees is as follows:

Last week, Nolan’s poignant portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the mastermind behind the covert Manhattan Project that birthed the atomic bomb, secured its leading position in the nominations for the BAFTA Film Awards with an impressive tally of 13 nods. Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Poor Things,” featuring Emma Stone, followed closely with 11 nominations for the British equivalent of the Oscars.

At the Golden Globes earlier this month, “Oppenheimer” emerged triumphant, clinching five awards, including the coveted Best Drama Motion Picture. Christopher Nolan was honored with the Best Director Globe, while Cillian Murphy’s compelling depiction of the titular character earned him the accolade for Best Actor in a Drama. Additionally, co-star Robert Downey Jr. was recognized as the best supporting actor.

Lily Gladstone, a first-time Globe nominee, claimed the title of Best Drama Actress for her remarkable performance in Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

“Poor Things” secured the Globe for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture, with Emma Stone also triumphing as the Best Actress in this category. Paul Giamatti took home the award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers,” and his co-star Da’Vine Joy Randolph, another first-time Globe nominee, was honored as the Best Supporting Actress.

“Barbie” earned nine Globe nominations, including a nod for Best Director, ultimately securing two wins: Best Original Song for Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made for?” and the newly introduced award for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement.

About Oscar Awards

Oscar Awards

The Academy Awards, officially known as the Oscars, are prestigious honors recognizing artistic and technical merit in the film industry. Presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, California, USA, these awards celebrate excellence in cinematic achievements as evaluated by the Academy’s voting membership. The iconic Oscar statuette, portraying a knight in Art Deco style, symbolizes the pinnacle of achievement in filmmaking.

A highlight of the global entertainment calendar, the major award categories are unveiled during a live televised Hollywood ceremony typically held in February or March. As the oldest worldwide entertainment awards ceremony, the inaugural Academy Awards took place in 1929, with the second ceremony in 1930 being the first broadcast on radio. In 1953, the Oscars made history again as the first awards ceremony to be televised. The Academy Awards hold the distinction of being the oldest among the four major annual American entertainment awards, with the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Awards for theater, and the Grammy Awards for music all drawing inspiration from the Oscars.

The debut awards presentation occurred on May 16, 1929, at a private dinner function at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, attended by around 270 people. The post-awards celebration took place at the Mayfair Hotel, and the cost of guest tickets for the ceremony was $5 (equivalent to $85 at 2020 prices). Fifteen statuettes were bestowed, honoring artists, directors, and other contributors to the film industry for their outstanding works during the 1927–28 period. The ceremony, spanning a mere 15 minutes, marked the beginning of a longstanding tradition.

In the initial ceremony, winners were announced to the media three months prior. Throughout the first decade, the results were shared with newspapers for publication at 11:00 pm on the awards night. In 1940, the Los Angeles Times preemptively disclosed the winners, prompting the Academy to adopt the use of sealed envelopes the following year to reveal the names of the winners.

While “Oscar” is a registered trademark of the AMPAS, it is colloquially used in the Italian language to refer generically to any award or award ceremony, regardless of the field.
