The 96th Academy Awards ceremony, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theater on March 10, 2024, witnessed an extraordinary sweep by Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer.”


The film, which delved into the profound implications of the atomic age, garnered a staggering 13 nominations and clinched seven prestigious Oscars.


“Oppenheimer” not only claimed the coveted Best Picture award but also earned Nolan his first-ever Oscar for Best Director. Cillian Murphy’s haunting portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, was recognized with the Best Actor honor, while Robert Downey Jr. took home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role as a vindictive bureaucrat.


For Nolan, this triumphant night marked a long-awaited vindication after a tumultuous history with the Academy Awards. Despite being nominated seven times previously for films like ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Memento,’ and ‘Inception,’ he had never won an Oscar until now.
