‘Oppenheimer’ Leads Oscar Nominations with 13
INTROSTORYGALLERYCREDITS
That’s followed by ‘Poor Things’ with 11 and ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ with 10.

Christopher Nolan's opus, Oppenheimer, was the most nominated film at Tuesday morning's 96th annual Academy Awards nominations, with 13 total nods. Those included best picture, best director, best actor, best supporting actor, best supporting actress, best adapted screenplay, best cinematography, best original score, best sound, best production design, best hair and makeup, best costume design and best film editing. The nominations were presented by Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid on Tuesday morning and streamed live.

Oppenheimer was followed by Yorgos Lanthimos' steampunk sex comedy Poor Things, which received 11 nominations, including best picture, best director, best actress for star and producer Emma Stone and best supporting actor for Mark Ruffalo.

Martin Scorsese's three-and-a-half hour epic Killers of the Flower Moon scored 10 nods, including best picture; best director; best actress for Lily Gladstone, who becomes the first-ever Native American actress to score a nomination; best supporting actor for Robert De Niro; and best editing for Scorsese's long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker, who has previously won three Oscars for Raging Bull, The Aviator and The Departed. Left off the list was star and previous winner Leonardo DiCaprio.

Warner Bros.' box-office smash, Barbie, scored eight nominations, including best picture, best supporting actor for Ryan Gosling, and best supporting actress for America Ferrera. Not included, however, were director Greta Gerwig and star and producer Margot Robbie, who played the titular role.

Also grabbing best-picture nominations were American Fiction, Anatomy of a Fall, The Holdovers, Maestro, Past Lives and The Zone of Interest. Both Anatomy of a Fall and The Zone of Interest are foreign-language entries, with Anatomy of a Fall shot in French and English and produced in France and The Zone of Interest a U.S., UK and Polish co-production that's produced in German. The Zone of Interest is also nominated for best international feature, while France chose to submit The Taste of Things, starring Juliette Binoche, instead. That film was ultimately not nominated.

Three of the best picture nominees – Barbie, Anatomy of a Fall and Past Lives – were directed by women, a first for the Motion Picture Academy, but only one of those women, Anatomy of a Fall's Justine Thiet, was nominated best director.

The remaining four nominees are Nolan, Lanthimos, Scorsese and The Zone of Interest's Jonathan Glazer. Five-time previous nominee Nolan is widely seen as the favorite. Scorsese has 16 total Oscar nominations, but has only won once: best director for 2007's The Departed.

Best actor nods went to Bradley Cooper for Maestro, Colman Domingo for Ruston, Paul Giamatti for The Holdovers, Cillian Murphy for Oppenheimer and Jeffrey Wright for American Fiction. First-time nominee Murphy is seen as the favorite in this category, having won the Golden Globe, the Critics Choice Award and many other critics' awards.

Best actress nominations went to Annette Bening for playing the title role in Nyad; Killers of the Flower Moon's Gladstone; Anatomy of a Fall's Sandra Hüller, who also starred in The Zone of Interest; Maestro's Carey Mulligan and Poor Things' Emma Stone. This category is seen as a toss-up between Gladstone and Stone, with Gladstone's stoic portrayal of long-suffering Mollie Burkhart compared to Stone's showy and physical role as Bella Baxter.

Best support actor nods went to American Fiction's Sterling K. Brown, Killers of the Flower Moon's De Niro, Oppenheimer's Robert Downey Jr., Barbie's Ryan Gosling and Poor Things' Ruffalo. Downey Jr. is in the lead entering this race, having won the Golden Globe, Critics Choice and many other critics awards in 2023.

Supporting actress nominations are Oppenheimer's Emily Blunt, The Color Purple's Danielle Brooks, Barbie's Ferrera, Nyad's Jodie Foster and The Holdovers' Da'Vine Joy Randolph, who is the current favorite to win this category.

The best screenplay nominees were mostly occupied by best-picture nominees, with the exception of Todd Haynes' May December for best original screenplay. That movie was otherwise shut out, although Julianne Moore and Charles Melton had been considered to be in the running in the best supporting actress and actor categories.

Other original screenplay nominees were Anatomy of a Fall, co-written by Triet and Arthur Harari; The Holdovers, written by David Hemingson; Maestro, written by best actor nominee Bradley Cooper, who also directed, and Josh Singer; and Past Lives, written by Celine Song, who also directed.

Adapted screenplay nominees were American Fiction, written by first-time feature filmmaker Cord Jefferson (Watchmen, The Good Place, Master of None), and based on the book Erasure by Percival Everett; Barbie, written by Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, based on the Mattel character; Oppenheimer, written by Nolan and based on the book American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin Sherwin; Poor Things, written by Tony McNamara and based on the novel of the same title by Alasdair Gray; and The Zone of Interest, written by Glaser and based on the 2014 novel of the same title by Martin Amis.

For a full list of nominees – including best animated feature, best documentary feature and best international feature – go to Oscars.org.

The 96th annual Academy Awards will be presented live from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 10 at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET on ABC and will be emceed by four-time host Jimmy Kimmel.
