After squaring off at the box office, Barbie and Oppenheimer, often called Barbenheimer, are among the top contenders for most the Oscar 2024 nominations and victories. Following their footsteps are Poor Things, Maestro, Killers of The Flower Moon, Society of the Snow, and The Color Purple.
As for the top contenders in the acting category, Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., Paul Giamatti, Margot Robbie, Lily Gladstone, and Emily Blunt are expected to be among the final nominations and the eventual victors.
Last year had been an iconic year for Indian Cinema at the Oscars with three nominations and two victories earned by The Elephant Whisperers in Best Documentary Short Film and RRR’s Naatu Naatu for Best Original Song. Sadly, this year, India’s only Oscar entry, 2018-Everyone is a Hero, for the category of International Feature Film did not make it to the Oscar 2024 Shortlist.
