Oscar 2024 nominations: Oppenheimer, Barbie dominate

Christopher Nolan's latest film 'Oppenheimer' leads the 2024 Oscar nominations, securing a whopping 13 nominations, followed by 'Poor Things' with 11, 'Killers of the Flower Moon' with 10 and 'Barbie with 8.

Christopher Nolan’s latest film, ‘Oppenheimer‘ has emerged as a frontrunner at the upcoming Oscars, securing a whopping 13 nominations, the Academy Awards announced Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The biographical thriller film about the life of Robert Oppenheimer, a theoretical physicist, is nominated for several top honours, including Best Film, Best Director, and Adapted Screenplay. At the Golden Globes earlier this month, it won five awards, including the best drama motion picture. 

Notably, this could mark Nolan’s first-ever Oscar win, having previously received five nominations. The star-studded cast, including Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr, and Emily Blunt, are also vying for individual accolades.

In a close second, Yorgos Lanthimos’s feminist fantasy, ‘Poor Things’ received 11 nominations, followed by Martin Scorsese’s true crime epic, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon‘ with 10 nods, while ‘Barbie‘ garnered 8 nominations.

Winners for 2025 Academy Awards will be announced on March 10 at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles, with acclaimed comedian and 2023 Primetime Emmy contender Jimmy Kimmel returning for second consecutive year as the host. The awards will be aired live on Walt Disney Co’s ABC network, and on M-Net in South Africa.
