Who Is Nominated For An Oscar This Year?
Oppenheimer leads the field with 13 nominations. Poor Things is next with 11 noms. Killers of the Flower Moon is up for consideration in 10 categories. This year’s box office champ, Barbie, earned eight nominations, including for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress.
The list of nominated actors includes big names such as Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Robert Downey Jr. and Jodie Foster. It also includes a large number of first-timers. Seven out of the 20 acting Oscar nominees this year are people of color. For all of them — Lily Gladstone, Danielle Brooks, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, America Ferrera, Colman Domingo, Sterling K. Brown and Jeffrey Wright – it is their first nomination.

Who Got Snubbed?
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 could win 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.
Barbie director Greta Gerwig is the first director ever — man or woman — to have their first three solo directorial efforts all nominated for Best Picture (Lady Bird, Little Women, Barbie).
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.
Who Will Win?
In the Best Actor category, it is shaping up as a real race between Oppenheimer’s Cillian Murphy and Paul Giamatti for The Holdovers, but Jeffrey Wright, Bradley Cooper and Colman Domingo also turned in strong performances.
Best Actress has long been thought to be Gladstone’s race to lose. Today’s nominations likely didn’t change that.
Best Supporting Actor will be a fascinating one to watch. Sterling K. Brown, Robert De Niro, Gosling and Ruffalo all turned in strong work, but then there is Robert Downey Jr, delivering what might be the best performance of his career in Oppenheimer.
The Best Supporting Actress category also bears watching. The frontrunner is Da’Vine Joy Randolph, who grounds The Holdovers as the boarding-school cook grieving the death of her student son in Vietnam; Danielle Brooks in The Color Purple, America Ferrara in Barbie, Emily Blunt in Oppenheimer and Nyad‘s Jodie Foster make this a competitive field.
