These are the 2024 Oscar nominees

  • The 2024 Oscar nominees were announced earlier this week, with the 96th annual Academy Awards taking place on 10th March.
  • Like the Golden Globes, Oppenheimer leads the way in terms of nominations with recognition in 13 categories.
  • Some surprise nominations include Ryan Gosling for Barbie, and The Fire Inside from Flaming Hot.

This week the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences shared its 2024 Oscar nominees, with the ceremony set to take place a few weeks from now on 10th March.

The event marks the peak of awards season, as we have seen in recent years, has not been without controversy, whether that be reading out the wrong winners or a grown man slapping another.

Hopefully this year’s iteration will remain drama free, but as we saw with the Golden Globes earlier this year, one film in particular is garnering much of the attention – Oppenheimer. It leads the way as far as nominations are concerned with 13, followed by Poor Things from director Yorgos Lanthimos with 11.

Among the Oscar nominees are a few surprises, such as Ryan Gosling, who stole the show as Ken in the Barbie film. He is going up against Robert Downey Jr. in the Best Supporting Actor category, who is likely going to win the award if recent ceremonies are anything to go by.

Gosling features again for his stellar work in I’m Just Ken (featured below), which is nominated for Best Original Song, although What Was I Made For? by Billie Eilish (also for Barbie) is tipped as favourite.

Other notable films include Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon with 10 nominations, and the aforementioned Barbie with eight.
