Oppenheimer and the 2024 Oscar Winners

Oscar Sunday in Los Angeles brought the biggest names in the film industry to the Dolby Theater for the 96th Academy Awards. Notable moments from this year’s live-broadcast ceremony includes the performances from Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell with “What Was I Made For?”and Ryan Gosling’s performance of “I’m Just Ken”. And John Cena presenting best costume design. (We will leave that one to the imagination).

Oppenheimer Sweeps The Oscars

The big winner of the evening was ‘Oppenheimer’ taking home 7 awards including the Best Picture award and Best Director for Christopher Nolan, both Cillian Murphy, and Robert Downey Jr. won respective awards for their performances. Best Music Score (Original) went to Ludwig Göransson and the Best Editing Award went to Jennifer Lame for her work on ‘Oppenheimer’.

Some feel that Christopher Nolan’s Oscar awards are long over-due, although technically he has only been nominated once, and Martin Scorsese’s Oscar drought was much more painful to witness. Nevertheless, Nolan and Oppenheimer won big on Sunday night and for that congratulations to Christopher Nolan and the entire Oppenheimer production.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things may not have won Best Picture, but the Academy did present ‘Poor Things’ with a total of 4 awards including handing Emma Stone her second Best Actress Oscar for her performance.
