2024 Oscars Complete Winners List

Posted March 10, 2024 by with 3 comments

An easy prediction: Oppenheimer will win at least 7 Oscars, including Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor, Editing, Score, and Cinematography. If voters really wanted to make history and make it 10 wins, they might also give the film Production Design, Adapted Screenplay, and Sound, but those three categories are much more competitive. (Oppie is also up for Make-Up, Costumes, and Supporting Actress, but it doesn’t stand a chance in those three categories.) The record for most wins at the Oscars is 11, with Ben-Hur, Titanic, and The Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King each taking home 11 trophies. It’ll be hilarious if The Holdovers wins for its plagiarized “Original” Screenplay, and I wonder if anyone will make any jokes about the stolen script tonight. The only potential upset that I’m hoping for is Sandra Hüller taking Best Actress, but it’s a long shot. There haven’t been any good upsets at the Oscars in a really long time, perhaps since Olivia Colman beat Glenn Close in 2019. But, fingers crossed for at least one surprise tonight.

Winners are highlighted in red in the 23 categories below (along with some occasional commentary) as they’re announced tonight during the ceremony, which, at 4:05 p.m. right now, hasn’t started yet. It was supposed to start at 4 p.m., so they’re already running late.

Best Actress in a Supporting Role

Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer)
Danielle Brooks (The Color Purple)
America Ferrera (Barbie)
Jodie Foster (Nyad)
Da’Vine Joy Randolph (The Holdovers)

(Interesting that in her acceptance speech, Randolph didn’t mention a single thing about the movie, nor did she thank anyone associated with it, including the director, the cast, etc.)

Best Animated Short Film

Letter to a Pig (Tal Kantor and Amit R. Gicelter)
Ninety-Five Senses (Jerusha Hess and Jared Hess)
Our Uniform (Yegane Moghaddam)
Pachyderme (Stéphanie Clément and Marc Rius)
War Is Over! Inspired by the Music of John & Yoko (Dave Mullins and Brad Booker)

Best Animated Feature

The Boy and the Heron (Hayao Miyazaki and Toshio Suzuki)
(Peter Sohn and Denise Ream)
(Nick Bruno, Troy Quane, Karen Ryan and Julie Zackary)
Robot Dreams (Pablo Berger, Ibon Cormenzana, Ignasi Estapé and Sandra Tapia Díaz)
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Kemp Powers, Justin K. Thompson, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Amy Pascal)

Best Writing (Original Screenplay)

Anatomy of a Fall (Screenplay by Justine Triet and Arthur Harari)
The Holdovers (Written by David Hemingson)
Maestro (Written by Bradley Cooper & Josh Singer)
May December (Screenplay by Samy Burch; Story by Samy Burch & Alex Mechanik)
Past Lives (Written by Celine Song)

(Either Anatomy or May December deserved the win, so they got this one right. I love that they’re playing that 50 Cent song as they go up and leave the stage. If you saw Anatomy, you know why.)

Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay)

American Fiction (Written for the screen by Cord Jefferson)
Barbie (Written by Greta Gerwig & Noah Baumbach)
Oppenheimer (Written for the screen by Christopher Nolan)
Poor Things (Screenplay by Tony McNamara)
The Zone of Interest (Written by Jonathan Glazer)

(This was somewhat predicted, so there won’t be any historic Oppenheimer sweep tonight. That was a great speech from Cord Jefferson, who I think makes his own history as the first former Gawker blogger to become an Oscar winner.)

Best Makeup and Hairstyling

Golda (Karen Hartley Thomas, Suzi Battersby and Ashra Kelly-Blue)
Maestro (Kazu Hiro, Kay Georgiou and Lori McCoy-Bell)
Oppenheimer (Luisa Abel)
Poor Things (Nadia Stacey, Mark Coulier and Josh Weston)
Society of the Snow (Ana López-Puigcerver, David Martí and Montse Ribé)

(Josh Weston? No, not to be confused with former Falcon gay porn star Josh Weston.)

Best Production Design

Barbie (Production Design: Sarah Greenwood; Set Decoration: Katie Spencer)
Killers of the Flower Moon (Production Design: Jack Fisk; Set Decoration: Adam Willis)
Napoleon (Production Design: Arthur Max; Set Decoration: Elli Griff)
Oppenheimer (Production Design: Ruth De Jong; Set Decoration: Claire Kaufman)
Poor Things (Production Design: James Price and Shona Heath; Set Decoration: Zsuzsa Mihalek)

(Not a single award for Oppenheimer yet, but they haven’t yet lost any of the categories where they’re favored to win.)

Best Costume Design

Barbie (Jacqueline Durran)
Killers of the Flower Moon (Jacqueline West)
Napoleon (Janty Yates and Dave Crossman)
Oppenheimer (Ellen Mirojnick)
Poor Things (Holly Waddington)

(A Poor Things sweep?! I heard it was crass, stupid, and weird, and I hated the director’s previous films, so I won’t be seeing it. Presenter John Cena’s nudity was nice—that’s obviously him above—so expect to see a bunch of gifs of him in the coming hours.)

Best International Feature Film

Io Capitano (Italy)
Perfect Days (Japan)
Society of the Snow (Spain)
The Teacher’s Lounge (Germany)
The Zone of Interest (United Kingdom)

Best Actor in a Supporting Role

Sterling K. Brown (American Fiction)
Robert De Niro (Killers of the Flower Moon)
Robert Downey Jr. (Oppenheimer)
Ryan Gosling (Barbie)
Mark Ruffalo (Poor Things)

(The nominee intros from the other acting winners are so corny and boring. Maybe it’s because so many of the nominees are so boring and undeserving? That said, RDJ is very deserving and it’s great to see him win. Oppenheimer finally has its first Oscar of the night.)

Best Visual Effects

The Creator (Jay Cooper, Ian Comley, Andrew Roberts and Neil Corbould)
Godzilla: Minus One (Takashi Yamazaki, Kiyoko Shibuya, Masaki Takahashi and Tatsuji Nojima)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (Stephane Ceretti, Alexis Wajsbrot, Guy Williams and Theo Bialek)
Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning, Part One (Alex Wuttke, Simone Coco, Jeff Sutherland and Neil Corbould)
Napoleon (Charley Henley, Luc-Ewen Martin-Fenouillet, Simone Coco and Neil Corbould)

(Hey, we finally got some some funny presenter banter thanks to DeVito and Schwarzenegger, with Michael Keaton in the audience. Emily Blunt and Ryan Gosling were pretty good earlier, too. But overall, this show is boring as hell. Kimmel’s opening monologue was completely forgettable.)

Best Film Editing

Anatomy of a Fall (Laurent Sénéchal)
The Holdovers (Kevin Tent)
Killers of the Flower Moon (Thelma Schoonmaker)
Oppenheimer (Jennifer Lame)
Poor Things (Yorgos Mavropsaridis)

(For a three-hour movie that never felt long while gliding effortlessly between different time periods and conversations between over a dozen different people, this is extremely well deserved. The Oppenheimer onslaught is now underway.)

Best Documentary Short Film

The ABCs of Book Banning (Sheila Nevins and Trish Adlesic)
The Barber of Little Rock (John Hoffman and Christine Turner)
Island in Between (S. Leo Chiang and Jean Tsien)
The Last Repair Shop (Ben Proudfoot and Kris Bowers)
Nǎi Nai & Wài Pó (Sean Wang and Sam Davis)

Best Documentary Feature Film

Bobi Wine: The People’s President (Moses Bwayo, Christopher Sharp and John Battsek)
The Eternal Memory (Maite Alberdi)
Four Daughters (Kaouther Ben Hania and Nadim Cheikhrouha)
To Kill a Tiger (Nisha Pahuja, Cornelia Principe and David Oppenheim)
20 Days in Mariupol (Mstyslav Chernov, Michelle Mizner and Raney Aronson-Rath)

Best Cinematography

El Conde (Edward Lachman)
Killers of the Flower Moon (Rodrigo Prieto)
Maestro (Matthew Libatique)
Oppenheimer (Hoyte van Hoytema)
Poor Things (Robbie Ryan)

Best Live-Action Short Film

The After (Misan Harriman and Nicky Bentham)
Invincible (Vincent René-Lortie and Samuel Caron)
Knight of Fortune (Lasse Lyskjaer Noer and Christian Norlyk)
Red, White and Blue (Nazrin Choudhury and Sara McFarlane)
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar (Wes Anderson and Steven Rales)

(Wes Anderson has been up for Best Director and Best Screenplay multiple times, and now he finally wins for Best Short Film, and he doesn’t even bother to show up. Great.)

Best Sound

The Creator (Ian Voigt, Erik Aadahl, Ethan Van der Ryn, Tom Ozanich and Dean Zupancic)
Maestro (Steven A. Morrow, Richard King, Jason Ruder, Tom Ozanich and Dean Zupancic)
Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One (Chris Munro, James H. Mather, Chris Burdon and Mark Taylor)
Oppenheimer (Willie Burton, Richard King, Gary A. Rizzo and Kevin O’Connell)
The Zone of Interest (Tarn Willers and Johnnie Burn)

(Another very well-deserved win. The sound design was crucial and key to the entire film.)

Ryan Gosling saved the Oscars, and that “I’m Just Ken” performance made up for how boring this ceremony has been. It’ll obviously be the only thing people are talking about tonight/tomorrow. Here was the end of it, featuring a surprise (I guess the only surprise of the night?) performance from Slash:

Best Original Score

American Fiction (Laura Karpman)
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (John Williams)
Killers of the Flower Moon (Robbie Robertson)
Oppenheimer (Ludwig Göransson)
Poor Things (Jerskin Fendrix)

Best Original Song

“The Fire Inside” from Flamin’ Hot (Music and Lyric by Diane Warren)
“I’m Just Ken” from Barbie (Music and Lyric by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt)
“It Never Went Away” from American Symphony (Music and Lyric by Jon Batiste and Dan Wilson)
“Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People)” from Killers of the Flower Moon (Music and Lyric by Scott George)
“What Was I Made For?” from Barbie (Music and Lyric by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell)

Best Actor in a Leading Role

Bradley Cooper (Maestro)
Colman Domingo (Rustin)
Paul Giamatti (The Holdovers)
Cillian Murphy (Oppenheimer)
Jeffrey Wright (American Fiction)

Best Directing

Justine Triet (Anatomy of a Fall)
Martin Scorsese (Killers of the Flower Moon)
Christopher Nolan (Oppenheimer)
Yorgos Lanthimos (Poor Things)
Jonathan Glazer (The Zone of Interest)

Best Actress in a Leading Role

Annette Bening (Nyad)
Lily Gladstone (Killers of the Flower Moon)
Sandra Hüller (Anatomy of a Fall)
Carey Mulligan (Maestro)
Emma Stone (Poor Things)

(They finally got the presenter line-up right! Those five—Jessica Lange, Sally Field, Jennifer Lawrence, Michelle Yeoh, and Charlize Theron—were perfect, and I’m happy to see a sincere Emma with a great acceptance speech.)

Best Picture

American Fiction (Ben LeClair, Nikos Karamigios, Cord Jefferson and Jermaine Johnson, Producers)
Anatomy of a Fall (Marie-Ange Luciani and David Thion, Producers)
Barbie (David Heyman, Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Robbie Brenner, Producers)
The Holdovers (Mark Johnson, Producer)
Killers of the Flower Moon (Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, Martin Scorsese and Daniel Lupi, Producers)
Maestro (Bradley Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Fred Berner, Amy Durning and Kristie Macosko Krieger, Producers)
Oppenheimer (Emma Thomas, Charles Roven and Christopher Nolan, Producers)
Past Lives (David Hinojosa, Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler, Producers)
Poor Things (Ed Guiney, Andrew Lowe, Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone, Producers)
The Zone of Interest (James Wilson, Producer)

(Al Pacino seems to have fucked up that presentation, and where the hell was Michelle Pfeiffer? She was supposed to be presenting tonight, probably with Pacino. Oppenheimer is a much better win compared to last year’s joke, so this ended nicely, as forgettable and bland as the ceremony was.)
