Oscars Snubs Surprises: Emma Stone Is Shocked She Won, ‘Maestro’ Is Shut Out — and Al Pacino’s Awkward Best Picture Reveal

हमें फॉलो करें

Oscars Snubs Surprises: The Academy Awards went largely as predicted, with “Oppenheimer” taking home the biggest prize. The only surprises were, wait, not many at all. “Oppenheimer” performed as expected and won a total of seven Oscars. In addition to Hoyte van Hoytema winning for cinematography, Jennifer Lame for editing, and Ludwig Göransson for score, it also won the top prize for picture. Christopher Nolan won for director, Cillian Murphy for actor, and Robert Downey Jr. for supporting actor.

Al Pacino’s Bizarro Presentation of Best Picture

Oscars 2024 winners: Cillian Murphy, Emma Stone

Just getting this out of the way quickly, before we get to the awards: Al Pacino’s presentation of the night’s most important award will forever be remembered for its… brevity, is really the kindest way to say it. Pacino took the stage, and without any recitation of the 10 nominees, he just opened the envelope and said “Oppenheimer.” It confused everyone! Surely, there was a plan that wasn’t this one? Involving clips, maybe? Kind of more fun this way, actually — and not since John Travolta’s “Adele Dazeem” moment, which just turned 10, has there been such a wonderful flub at the Oscars.

Best Actor: Cillian Murphy v. Paul Giamatti

Even though several of the major awards have been foregone conclusions for months, it’s been fun that the winners in both lead acting categories have been questioning marks. Would Cillian Murphy win best actor, for his chilly embodiment of J. Robert Oppenheimer, told over decades, as one well-deserved element of the night’s overall coronation of “Oppenheimer”? Or would character actor Paul Giamatti, so wrongly overlooked years ago for “Sideways” — even for a nomination! — get his due for playing Paul Hunham, an angry boarding school teacher who’s cracked open after he bonds with a bratty student (Dominic Sessa) over Christmas break?

Diane Warren Continues to Be the Susan Lucci of the Oscars

Diane Warren continues two remarkable streaks. Since coming back to the Oscars after a 13-year gap with her song “Grateful” from 2014’s “Beyond the Lights,” she’s been nominated every year but one, racking up nine nominations in a decade. (She also earned an honorary Oscar during this stretch.) And this year, once again, the nomination was the reward. It was hard to imagine anyone beating the juggernaut that is Billie Eilish’s “Barbie” theme “What Was I Made For?,”

Best Animated Feature Film: “The Boy and the Heron” Wins

Anime Awards 2024 Winners

Hayao Miyazaki, considered among the most transformative figures in the history of animation, had won only one competitive Oscar previously, for “Spirited Away.” (He also won an honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in 2014.) But his latest contribution to the medium had, before the ceremony, been considered a likely also-ran to the latest “Spider-Verse” installment, a box-office smash that had been considered by some a potential best picture nominee.

Who presented Best Picture 2024?

Oppenheimer has swept this year’s Oscars, winning seven gongs, including Best Actor, best director and Best Picture. The top prize of the night was presented by The Godfather star Al Pacino – who seemed to jump the gun by announcing the winner before listing the nominees.

2024 Oscar winners:

Actress in a Supporting Role

Emily Blunt – Oppenheimer

Danielle Brooks – The Colour Purple

America Ferrera – Barbie

Jodie Foster – Nyad

“Anatomy of a Fall” Swoops in for Original Screenplay

Two previous Alexander Payne films have won adapted screenplay Oscars(Oscars Snubs Surprises) — “Sideways” and “The Descendants” (Payne wrote both) — and “The Holdovers” (written by David Hemingson), a well-loved movie, went into the night as a favorite.

Who was the best actress in 2024?

Emma Stone, in what some consider an upset win, took home best actress for her role in “Poor Things,” beating out Lily Gladstone, who became the first Native American to be nominated for best actress for her role as Mollie Burkhart in Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

Adapted screenplay — one of the most competitive, up-in-the-air categories going into the ceremony — was stacked. The category contained eventual best picture winner(Oscars Snubs Surprises) “Oppenheimer” (written by Christopher Nolan, who also won for director), “Poor Things” (Tony McNamara) and international feature winner “The Zone of Interest” (Jonathan Glazer). On top of that, Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach’s “Barbie” was in here — and it was initially thought to be a frontrunner after the backlash against Gerwig’s omission as director.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” Shut Out

Remarkably, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is Martin Scorsese’s third film to go zero-for-10 at the Oscars, following “Gangs of New York” and “The Irishman” in this dubious achievement. (This brushes very close to the record shared by “The Color Purple” and “The Turning Point” for most Oscar nominations without a win, which is 11.)

“Maestro” Also Shut Out!

Alas, Bradley Cooper. The maestro who made “Maestro” is now zero-for-12 across his career Oscar nominations. (He still doesn’t have a directing nomination for either 2018’s “A Star Is Born” or “Maestro” — perhaps a sign that the Academy was cool on it.) And he lost all three of his nominations for acting in, writing, and producing “Maestro.”
