2024 Oscar nominations: ‘Oppenheimer’ leads with 13 nods

Last year, there was a film for every type of moviegoer. Now the best of the best — including the epic biographical thriller Oppenheimer and the witty fantasy comedy Barbie — will battle it out at the 96th annual Academy Awards.

The much-anticipated 2024 Oscars nominations were revealed Tuesday morning by actors Zazie Beetz, who starred in the TV show Atlanta, and Jack Quaid of The Boys. With speed and agility, Beetz and Quaid read out the nominations for all 23 categories.

Perhaps to no surprise, Cillian Murphy achieved a Best Actor nomination — though some will be shocked to see Margot Robbie did not earn a nod for her plastic performance in her respective Barbenheimer flick.

Though Murphy is said to be the frontrunner for the men’s prize, others, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper, could still usurp the honour. The women’s award will see a battle of titan performances from actors including Lily Gladstone and Emma Stone.

In the end, Chrstopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer scored the most nominations, with 13 mentions.

Martin Scorsese’s Western crime drama Killers of the Flower Moon followed close behind with 10 nominations.

Barbie scored only eight.

Among the other leading nominees is Bradley Cooper’s biographical film about Leonard Bernstein, Maestro, and the absurdist comedy Poor Things. Even the fan favourite film Past Lives achieved two nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

Jimmy Kimmel is slated to host the glitzy awards ceremony in March. Kimmel has already hosted the Oscars thrice, in 2017, 2018 and 2023.
