2024 Oscars Winners: Full List

Christopher Nolan has finally got the Academy’s attention. After falling short for his work on Dunkirk in 2018, the influential filmmaker has finally nabbed Best Director honours and what’s more, it was a clean sweep. At the 2024 Academy Awards in Los Angeles, Nolan’s historic biopic Oppenheimer scooped the pool, securing a whopping seven awards, including Best Actor for Cillian Murphy, Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr and Best Picture. The monumental success story wasn’t the only memorable moment from the event, which delivered a series of surprises, snubs and a music performance that will go down in history.

For many, Oppenheimer‘s success at the 2024 Oscars was far from unexpected. The film, which sees Cillian Murphy as Robert J. Oppenheimer, the physicist responsible for making the atomic bomb a reality, was widely expected to secure a number of wins, courtesy of its remarkable direction, acting performances and design.

In his acceptance speech, Nolan acknowledged that Oppenheimer had not always been an easy film to make, thanking the entire cast and crew for their efforts. Over the past 12 months, the industry has faced a barrage of challenges, with a stalemate between studios and the writers’ and actors’ unions causing a shutdown for all new productions. Thankfully, negotiations have been positive and the film sector is back firing on all cylinders, just in time for its loudest and proudest night.

As mentioned, Cillian Murphy took home the award for Best Actor for his portrayal of the pioneering, albeit tortured nuclear scientist. The win marks Murphy the first Irish-born winner of the award, a fact that he referenced in his acceptance speech, stating “I’m a very proud Irishman standing here tonight”. The actor then praised the cast and crew before making a powerful statement for peace.

“We made a film about the man who created the atomic bomb, and for better or for worse, we are all living in Oppenheimer’s world, so I’d like to dedicate this to the peacemakers everywhere.”

Fellow cast member Robert Downey Jr capped off his post-Marvel renaissance with a stunning victory in the Best Supporting Actor category. The former Iron Man star was critically lauded for his portrayal of US government official Lewis Strauss in Nolan’s epic, more than thirty years after the Academy first acknowledged his talent in the 1993 film Chaplin. Downey Jr’s long and storied battle with addiction saw him blacklisted from the industry for several years, but with an Oscar now in his grasp, the reinvention is complete.

“I’d like to thank my terrible childhood, and the Academy, in that order,” Downey Jr joked in his acceptance speech. “I needed this job more than it needed me. I stand here before you a better man because of it… What we do is meaningful and what we decide to make is important.”

Elsewhere, the unique Frankenstein story Poor Things took home four awards, including Best Actress for Emma Stone, while the Holocaust drama The Zone of Interest scored two. Stone, who appeared shocked by the win, had been neck and neck with Killers of the Flower Moon‘s Lily Gladstone for the accolade in the lead-up to the ceremony. However, her role in Yorgos Lanthimos’ bizarre film, where she played an infant whose brain has been implanted into the body of an adult woman, proved to be the standout according to the Academy.

It wasn’t the only disappointment for Killers of the Flower Moon. The Martin Scorsese drama about a string of Osage murders in the 1920s went home empty-handed, despite being nominated in 10 categories.

Remarkably, the year’s highest-grossing film, Barbie received only one award despite its eight nominations and while it may have been the gong fans were expecting, it wasn’t for the reason they predicted. On a night that saw Ryan Gosling perform his breakout smash I’m Just Ken live for the first time, another song from the Barbie soundtrack took home the chocolates with the Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell-penned piece What Was I Made For? securing the Best Original Song award.

“Thank you so much to the Academy, I was not expecting this, I feel so incredibly lucky and honoured,” Eilish said as she accepted the award with her brother and collaborator Finneas O’Connell.

Amid the 2024 Oscars snubbings and drubbings, however, there were a few standout stories. The Zone of Interest became the first British film ever to win Best International Feature, while the eye-opening Ukrainian war documentary 20 Days In Mariupol was acknowledged as the year’s best. With that title, director Mstyslav Chernov officially became the first Ukrainian Oscar winner, however, noted that his success had not come without heartache. His film depicts the Russian invasion of Ukraine in stunning detail. Following a team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol, 20 Days In Mariupol explores the struggles to survive and document the war’s atrocities.

“I’m probably the first director on this stage to say I wish I would never have made this film,” he told audiences during his acceptance speech.
