Oscar nominations for Tuesday, January 23, 2024, were just revealed. There were a number of surprises as well as snubs, awards season has officially begun.

Past Lives, Barbie, Oppenheimer, and Poor Things dominate the list of films, actors, and directors nominated for awards in the most recent round of nominations.

But as always, there are the customary omissions that have infuriated moviegoers. The exclusion of Barbie filmmaker Greta Gerwig, Andrew Scott (All of Us Strangers), and Charles Melton (May December) from the Bafta nominations raised more questions than they answered when they were first revealed earlier this month.

Accompanying Jack Quaid, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, is actor Zazie Beetz of Atlanta and The Joker. The nominations are available on our live blog below.

The 96th Academy Awards will be shown live in the UK on ITV on Sunday, March 10, starting at approximately 11 p.m.

The film by Christopher Nolan, which tells the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the head of the ultra-secret Manhattan Project that produced the atomic bomb, led the BAFTA Film Award nominations last week with thirteen nominations. The Emma Stone-directed film “Poor Things,” which was nominated for eleven Oscars in the United Kingdom, was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.

“Oppenheimer” took home five trophies at the Golden Globes earlier this month, including best drama motion picture. Best director went to Nolan, who won the Golden Globe. As the lead actor in the drama, Cillian Murphy won best actor in a drama, while Robert Downey Jr. took home the best supporting actor award.

After being nominated for a Globe for the first time, Lily Gladstone won best drama actress for her role in Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

“Poor Things” took home the Golden Globe for best musical or comedy film, while Stone was named the best actress in the field. For Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers,” Paul Giamatti won best actor in a musical or comedy, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Giamatti’s co-star and another first-time Globe contender, took home the best supporting actress trophy.

“Barbie” received nine Golden Globe nominations, including one for best director. The song “What Was I Made for?” by Billie Eilish won best original song, and the new award for cinematic and box office success was also won.

Reporting was given by Caitlin O’Kane and David Morgan.
