Who Is Nominated For An Oscar This Year?

Oppenheimer lead the field with 13 nominations. Poor Things was next with 11 noms. Killers of the Flower Moon was up for consideration in 10 categories. This year’s box office champ, Barbieearned eight nominations, including for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress.

The list of nominated actors included big names such as Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Robert Downey Jr. and Jodie Foster. It also included a large number of first-timers.

Seven out of the 20 acting Oscar nominees in 2024 are people of color. For all of them — Lily GladstoneDanielle Brooks, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, America FerreraColman DomingoSterling K. Brown and Jeffrey Wright — it is their first nomination.

Who Got Snubbed?

Greta Gerwig, who lost to Cord Jefferson for adapted screenplay for American Fiction. No slight to the terrific Jefferson, but this category would have been the ONLY way Academy voters could have made up for the fact they ignored her for Best Director.

Lily Gladstone, the best actress frontrunner since Killers of the Flower Moon premiered in Cannes, was edged out by the late-surging Emma Stone, making her second such win.

Even more astounding (if that’s possible) Killers of the Flower Moon, with the Martin Scorsese-Robert De Niro-Leo DiCaprio pedigree, went 0 for 10 on the night.

Alexander Payne has won Adapted Screenplay Oscars for Sideways and The Descendants. This year, his The Holdovers was written by David Hemingson, but expected to take the category. The film was upset by Arthur Harari and director Justine Triet’s screenplay for Anatomy of a Fall.

In the nominations, one of the big surprises was the omission of Leonardo DiCaprio for Killers of the Flower Moon in the Best Actor category. Margot Robbie was also left out for her performance in Barbie. Comedic performances like Robbie’s are not frequently nominated for Oscars. Don’t worry, she was nominated for Best Picture as a producer on Barbie. Directors Greta Gerwig (Barbie) and Alexander Payne (The Holdovers), both former winners in the screenplay categories, who made their respective comedies work so well this year, were left out of the Best Director race. Surprisingly, the documentary Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie and American Symphony was shut out in that category.

2024 Oscar Trivia

  • Emma Stone is only the second female producer to receive Best Actress and Best Picture nominations in the same year. The first was Frances McDormand for Nomadland in 2021.

  • Bradley Cooper is one of only four actors who have directed themselves into Best Actor nominations twice. The others are Laurence Olivier (who did it three times), Clint Eastwood and Warren Beatty.

  • Lily Gladstone made Oscar history as the first-ever Native woman of American descent to be nominated for Best Actress.

  • Martin Scorsese is now the most-nominated living director. His 10 surpasses those of Steven Spielberg.

  • Another record: three female directors saw their movies nab Best Picture nominations — Celine Song with Past Lives, Great Gerwig with Barbie and Justine Triet with Anatomy of a Fall — the first time that’s ever happened.

  • Indiana Jones and the Dial Of Destiny composer John Williams has became both the oldest-ever nominee (at 91) and the most-nominated person alive, with an astounding 54 noms over the years. Only Walt Disney has more.

What Were The Highlights Of The Show?

There were protesters on the streets decrying the Israel-Hamas war. That delayed a few stars and as a result, the show began about five minutes late, which is a rarity for the time-conscious Oscars.

Early on, Robert Downey Jr won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in Oppenheimer and, in accepting, acknowledged his own bumpy path to an Oscar win 30-plus years after he was first nominated for Chaplin. “I’d like to thank my terrible childhood and the Academy, in that order,” said Downey.

Oscar producers memorably begin the In Memoriam segment with a clip of Alexei Navalny from the 2023 Oscar nominated documentary about the now-deceased Russian opposition leader. Too bad the rest of the segment was once again hobbled by oversights of such important recently-passed greats as Andre Braugher and

There was the powerful speech from 20 Days in Mariupol director Mstyslav Chernov mourning Russian’s invasion of his country while winning the first Oscar ever for a Ukrainian film with his documentary.

John Cina showed up all but naked to present the award for Best Costume Design.

Ryan Gosling took to the stage to perform the “I’m Just Ken” from Barbie and brought the house down. Clad in pink down to his gloves, he got everyone on their feet to sing along with song lyrics playing on big screens.

And finally, with a minute or so to kill before the end of the show, Jimmy Kimmel read out a just posted review of his performance as host of the Oscars. Kimmel read from his phone: “Has there ever been a worse host than Jimmy Kimmel at The Oscars. [sic] His opening was that of a less than average person trying too hard to be something which he is not, and never can be.”

What Kimmel was reading was an actual Truth Social post from former president Donald Trump.

Kimmel’s reaction to the bad review? “Thank you President Trump. Thank you for watching. I’m surprised you’re still ah…isn’t it past your jail time?” The audience cheered.

When Were The Final Oscar Votes Due?

Academy members turned in their final ballots on February 27.

Where Did The Ceremony Take Place?

The Academy Awards were handed out at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Who Were This Year’s Oscar Presenters?

The presenters include Zendaya, Nicolas Cage, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brendan Fraser, Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Yeoh, Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mahershala Ali, Jessica Lange, Ke Huy Quan, Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Keaton, Regina King, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate McKinnon, Rita Moreno, John Mulaney, Catherine O’Hara, Octavia Spencer, Ramy Youssef and Sam Rockwell. It’s traditional to have some of last year’s winners in the big acting categories present those statuettes this year. Yeoh, Quan, Curtis and Fraser all fit that pattern.

Who Performed?

It was a pretty stacked field for Best Song and the performers who brought the nominated tunes to the stage included Jon Batiste, Becky G, Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell, Scott George and the Osage Singers, and Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson. To see all the performances, click here.
