Star-Studded Oscars: Nominations and Front-Runners

The 96th Oscars honored the best films of 2023, with the glittering ceremony featuring the most hotly anticipated movies of the past year, including “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer,” leading the nominations.

“Oppenheimer” secured an impressive 13 nods, with Cillian Murphy as a favorite for best actor, having already claimed a BAFTA, Golden Globe, and SAG award for his role as physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer.

Barbie’s Surprises and Snubs

“Barbie,” another smash hit from the previous year, received eight nominations but faced notable snubs.

Margot Robbie, the star of “Barbie,” was not nominated for best actress, while Greta Gerwig, the director, was also left out of the best director category.

America Ferrera, surprisingly nominated for best supporting actress, added to the unexpected twists.

“Poor Things,” a graphic art house movie starring Emma Stone, emerged as the second most-nominated film. Stone competes with other top actors like Bradley Cooper and Cillian Murphy for the best actor in a leading role category.
