The nominees for the 96th Academy Awards have been revealed

By: Adam Beam 1/23/2024


The nominees for the upcoming Oscars have been officially revealed ahead of the 96th Academy Awards on March 10. "Oppenheimer," "Anatomy of a Fall," and "American Fiction" are poised to be some of the night's biggest winners.


Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" has been a powerhouse during this awards season, most recently securing Golden Globes wins for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor in a Dramatic Role for Cillian Murphy's earth-shattering turn as "The American Prometheus," J. Robert Oppenheimer. The film secured 13 nominations.


If you were at the movie theaters in 2023, chances are you can't separate "Oppenheimer" from "Barbie." While the film didn't secure some of the bigger wins at previous ceremonies, it's still expected to dominate in categories like Best Original Song and Production Design. For Best Original Song, the film is nominated for two songs, including "What Was I Made For?" and "I'm Just Ken."


While Martin Scorsese's latest has been hit or miss on the awards circuit, the one consistency has been the recognition of Lily Gladstone's performance in "Killers of the Flower Moon." The actress made history as the first indigenous actor to be nominated in that category. However, while Gladstone is the frontrunner, eyes should be kept on Emma Stone for her turn in "Poor Things."


On top of "Poor Things," one of the other big surprises that could win it all this time around is "American Fiction," directed by Cord Jefferson. While Bradley Cooper's magnum opus "Maestro" could go home empty-handed once again.


Some of the other major snubs from this year's nominees include no Best Actress or Best Director nomination for Margot Robbie or Greta Gerwig for "Barbie". Charles Melton received critical praise for his role in "May December" but was unable to secure a Best Supporting Actor nomination. And animation fans were shocked to see no love for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem" in the Best Animated Feature category.
