Director Christopher Nolan’s biopic film Oppenheimer swept the Oscars 2024 with seven wins including Best Director, Best Film, and Best Leading Actor awards.

The film took home a total of seven awards during the gala night. Christopher Nolan won Best Director, Cillian Murphy won Best Actor and Robert Downey Jr. won Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the film.

The film also won awards for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Film Editing.

The team behind Oppenheimer has offered their thanks after winning Best Picture, capping off a night of success across seven major categories.

“I think any of us who make movies know that you kind of dream of this moment. You know you do, right? I could deny it, but I have been dreaming about this moment for so long,” British film producer Emma Thomas said in her acceptance speech for Best Picture.

“The reason this movie was the movie it was: Chris Nolan. He is singular, he is brilliant, and I’m so grateful,” she added.

Oppenheimer revolves around the race to create the first atomic bomb and the scientist who spearheaded that process, J Robert Oppenheimer.

Poor Things followed Oppenheimer with four Oscars.

Emma Stone won Best Actress for Poor Things. The film also snapped up with three crafts wins, for Best Costume Design, Production Design, and Makeup and Hairstyling.

Stone beat out perceived frontrunner Lily Gladstone, who has scooped up numerous awards for her role in Killers of the Flower Moon.

The winners of the 96th annual Academy Awards were unveiled at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph won Best Supporting Actress for The Holdovers.

Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell won the Oscar for Best Original Song for “What Was I Made For?” from Barbie.
