The 96th Academy Awards are finally upon us and it’s time to watch the show and discover the winners of the most prestigious award in Hollywood. The Oscars are back in their normal routine playing out during the winter months, wrapping up this year’s intriguing & extensive awards season in March. All awards will be marked below in the complete list alongside the nominees. There are ten Best Picture noms from 2023, including both Barbie and Oppenheimer from the “Barbenheimer” craze. While I was originally hoping Poor Things would win, it’s expected that Oppenheimer will take home the most awards this year. It may finally be time for Christopher Nolan to have his year! It might also be the first Oscar for Godzilla if it wins in Best VFX. I’m ready for the night and looking forward to find out what The Academy members have chosen. All of the nominated movies are worthy – including American Fiction and Maestro and The Zone of Interest. Now it’s time to find out who’s taking home Oscars, and who isn’t, at the annual Academy Awards.

2024 Oscar Nominees

Final Thoughts: Congrats to all of the winners! I’m extremely happy about Oppenheimer and Poor Things winning so many Oscars – both of these were in my Top 5 of 2023. I think Emma Stone absolutely deserves the win over Lily! She gave the most impressive performance of the year, without a doubt, and while Lily’s performance is also outstanding it was truly Stone’s to win. I was also hoping to Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Cillian Murphy would win – and they did! Huzzah! I do think Paul Giamatti would’ve been just as satisfying instead, but once again it’s Murphy’s year and it would’ve been a bigger travesty if he didn’t take home the Oscar. Nearly every other win is just right. The Zone of Interest winning Best Sound over Oppenheimer was a big surprise at first, but also a great win – that sound design is astonishing and vital to the film’s unsettling vibe. Of course it’s the right pick in the end. And finally, Godzilla: Minus One is a sweet victory! Godzilla’s first ever Oscar after 70 years since the big lizard first appeared on the big screen in 1954. What a night. I’m not upset about much…! Every winner this year really deserved it and I think The Academy chose well again.
