The Oscars 2024 nominations have just been announced, with some surprises and lots of snubs.

On Tuesday (23 January), the latest round of nominations were revealed during a live stream hosted by Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, Joker) and Jack Quaid (The Boys, Oppenheimer) in Los Angeles.

The movies, actors, directors and writers competing to get their hands on the prized Oscar statuette were announced one week after the Bafta nominations were unveiled in the UK.

The films in contention for awards include Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, which swept the board at both the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards earlier this month, as well as its blockbuster rival Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon and Poor Things, starring Emma Stone.

Some of the shock omissions include Gerwig, who did not earn a Best Director nod, Barry Keoghan for his performance in Saltburn, and May December star Charles Melton.

This year’s Oscars ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and will take place on 10 March.

The 10 most baffling Oscar victories

Each year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences attempts to award Oscars to the “best” film or artist in each category that year, and each year it fails at least a few times.

There is always room for disagreement on what constitutes “best”: how can we possibly compare Toy Story 3, Inception and The King’s Speech? And yet voters did just that in 2010.

It is similarly impossible to nail down all the egregious choices in academy history, but here are a few of the most glaring errors, with just days to go until the 2023 ceremony. Starting with the granddaddy of them all...

25 superb movies that somehow didn’t receive a single Oscar nomination

It might be obvious to say, but a film getting nominated for an Oscar doesn’t automatically make it good.

In fact, there have been many deserving movies over the years that were somehow overlooked by the Academy.

It’s easy to assume that certain releases don’t get nominated because they’re not what Oscar voters would usually go for, but there have been some surprises in the past.

Fans are already predicted an Oppenheimer sweep

It may have been Barbie’s world last summer, but oh how the tables have turned, as it now appears the 2024 awards circuit is Oppenehimer’s world, and we’re all just living in it.

Christopher Nolan’s war drama, starring Oscar-nominated actor Cillian Murphy, has outperformed Greta Gerwig’s Barbie in both the 2024 Oscars and Baftas nominations lists. And fans are already predicting an Oppenheimer sweep.

America Ferrera ‘incredibly disappointed’ by Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie Oscar snubs

Barbie actor America Ferrera has revealed she’s “incredibly disappointed” that the film’s director Greta Gerwig and star Margot Robbie were both overlooked in their individual categories in today’s Oscars nominations.

The smash hit blockbuster has been nominated for a total of eight Oscars, including Ferrera for Best Supporting Actress, Ryan Gosling for Best Supporting Actor and the night’s biggest award, Best Picture.

However, Gerwig and Robbie missed out on nominations for Best Director and Best Actress respectively.

The thorny diplomacy of the Oscars in memoriam segment

The in memoriam tribute is not only the most melancholy part of any Oscars ceremony – it is by far the thorniest to produce. The segment, instituted in 2014, serves a noble cause: to honour members of the film industry who have died in the year preceding the event, serving as a reminder of their contributions to the arts. But when the in memoriam sequence makes headlines, it tends to be for all the wrong reasons.
