Oscars 2024 winners list: Will ‘Oppenheimer’ dominate the Academy Awards?  – National | Globalnews.ca

[ad_1]

Last year, Hollywood served up some dramatic, strange and nail-biting films for moviegoers, but only the best of the best can take top honours at the 96th annual Academy Awards.

For many, the 2024 Oscars have likely shaped up to be predicable — and perhaps even dull — with Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer seemingly positioned to score a number of the biggest trophies.

But the competition isn’t over until the orchestra plays the last weepy creative off stage.

Actor Cillian Murphy of Oppenheimer is widely expected to grab the coveted Best Actor trophy for his titular portrayal of the “father of the atomic bomb.” Fan favourite Robert Downey Jr. is also predicted to win Best Supporting Actor for playing J. Robert Oppenheimer’s main antagonist, politician Lewis Strauss.

The Oscar win would be a first for both men, though Downey has been nominated twice before, for Tropic Thunder (2008) and Chaplin (1992).

Oscars 2024: Oppenheimer, Barbie among nominees for Best Picture of the Year


Among the women, many believe Lily Gladstone is positioned to win Best Actress in a Leading Role for her deeply rooted, devastating portrayal of Osage woman Mollie Burkhart in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Gladstone, a member of the Indigenous Blackfeet Nation, could become the first Native American to win an acting Oscar.

But Emma Stone could still snag the Best Actress prize for Poor Things, the crowd-pleasing, absurdist comedy about a Frankenstein-esque woman in pursuit of personal liberation.

Poor Things received 11 nominations in total, trailing only two behind Oppenheimer, which led the pack with 13 nods. Scorsese’s Western crime drama Killers of the Flower Moon followed close behind with 10.

Barbie scored only eight, triggering a wave of public backlash and claims that the film — as well as its leading actor Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig — was snubbed. Canadian Ryan Gosling’s nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role only further upset Barbie fans, who pointed to Gosling’s nod as an interesting parallel to the film’s feminist messaging.

Among Barbie‘s eight nominations, Billie Eilish, 22, may become the youngest two-time Oscar winer if she scores for the song What Was I Made For? Eilish already has an Oscar for her song No Time to Die, which was made for the 2021 James Bond film.

Regardless, host Jimmy Kimmel is likely to crack a few jokes about the Barbie snubs, especially since Kimmel alluded that he would be mostly avoiding talk of politics at the awards show.
