Share on social

In a veritable sweep at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater, the movie “Oppenheimer”, helmed by acclaimed director Christopher Nolan, took centre stage at the 96th Academy Awards. The film clinched seven high-profile Oscars on Sunday, sweeping some of the most coveted accolades of the night. The triumph was no less than electric, spinning a new narrative of dominance in the realm of film. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscars lent a dazzling spotlight to ‘Oppenheimer,’ which towered over a remarkable roster of contenders.

The brilliance of Nolan’s latest offering outshone the likes of ‘Barbie,’ ‘The Holdovers,’ ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ and ‘Poor Things,’ securing its win as the Best Picture of the Year. The film also brought home gold for Best Director, Cinematography, Film Editing, and Best Music (Original Score). The acting fraternity, too, celebrated the film, with Cillian Murphy receiving the Best Actor accolade and Robert Downey Jr. clinching the best supporting actor title.

Reflecting on their journey, Murphy expressed his gratitude for the “wildest, most exhilarating, creatively satisfying journey” of his life. In his heartfelt acceptance speech, Murphy extended his thanks to his “incredible team,” his life-partner, Yvonne McGuinness, and their sons, Malachy and Aran. An ode to the peacemakers, ‘Oppenheimer’, according to Murphy, is not just a film about the man who created the atomic bomb, but it is also a reflection of the world we inhabit today.

The film “Poor Things” emerged as the event’s understated star. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the film centred around a sex-crazed woman with a child’s mind bagged four awards. Leading lady Emma Stone took home the Oscar for Best Actress, further solidifying the film’s critical success.

After “Barbie” received eight nominations, its single victory was for Best Original Song: “What Was I Made For?” from Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell. Offering a delightful surprise, “Barbie” star Ryan Gosling provoked a standing ovation following his performance of “I’m Just Ken”.

Despite the exuberant celebration, the 96th Academy Awards was not without its disappointments. Da’Vine Randolph, star of “The Holdovers”, received her first Oscar and nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The film, however, failed to bag any more wins.

As the curtain drew on the 96th Academy Awards, it was clear that ‘Oppenheimer’ made a lasting impression. In a reverberating triumph, the film set a new benchmark in the cinematic realms, to be remembered in the annals of Oscar history. It was a night painted with the vibrant hues of victory and punctuated by the poignant tales of the undeserved losses. It was, in essence, an embodiment of the dreams and disappointments, the triumphs and trials that shape the enchanting world of cinema.
