Oppenheimer is the top nominee for the 2024 Oscars, with 13 nods.

All five of the films nominated for best film last week at the BAFTA Film Awards (Anatomy of a Fall, The Holdovers, Killers of the Flower Moon, Oppenheimer and Poor Things) were nominated for best picture Academy Awards, along with five additional films – Barbie, Past Lives, American Fiction, Maestro and The Zone of Interest.


This marks the first time in Oscar history that three films not in English – Anatomy of a Fall, Past Lives and The Zone of Interest – are in the running as best picture nominees. This also marks the sixth consecutive year that one or more films in a language other than English has received a best picture nomination.

For the fifth consecutive year, at least one film nominated for best picture was directed by a woman. But that picture was not the box office blockbuster Barbie — directed by Greta Gerwig — but rather Anatomy of a Fall, directed by Justine Triet (Sibyl).

Two actors are nominated for lead acting honors and as producers of best picture contenders. Bradley Cooper achieved his double play for Maestro, while Emma Stone earned hers for Poor Things. Stone is the second woman to be nominated for acting and best picture for the same film, following Frances McDormand (Nomadland, 2020). This ups Cooper’s career nominations total to 12 and Stone’s to five.

Cooper was also nominated in the original screenplay category, but was passed over for a best director nod. Cooper becomes the fourth person to direct himself to an acting nomination on more than one film (A Star Is Born, 2018). He follows Laurence Olivier, Warren Beatty and Clint Eastwood.

Two songs from Barbie were nominated for best original song – “I’m Just Ken” (written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt) and “What Was I Made For?” (written by Billie Eilish and Finneas). A third song from the blockbuster film, “Dance the Night” (on which Ronson and Wyatt collaborated with Dua Lipa and Caroline Ailin) failed to advance to the finals. (Based on a 2008 rule change, no more than two songs from a film can be nominated.

Barbie is the first film to spawn two best song nominees since La La Land seven years ago. “City of Stars” and “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” were both nominated in 2016, with “City of Stars” going on to win.

Oscar perennial songwriter Diane Warren was nominated for “The Fire Inside” from the Cheetos dramedy Flamin’ Hot. This is her 15th best original song nomination, a benchmark that only five songwriters have reached. This is the seventh consecutive year in which Warren has been nominated, the longest streak in this category since Sammy Cahn was nominated eight years running, from 1954-61.

John Williams received his record-extending 49th nod in a scoring category for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. His overall total of 54 nominations (including five for best original song) is the most for any living person, and second only to Walt Disney at 59. He is also the oldest nominee in a competitive award category at 91 years of age.

The late Robbie Robertson was also nominated for best original score for Killers of the Flower Moon. This was the 12th and last Martin Scorsese film that late Band leader Robertson worked on. Robertson, who died in June at age 80, is the first composer to be nominated in this category posthumously since the legendary Bernard Herrmann was cited in 1976 for both Obsession and Taxi Driver.

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the 2024 Oscars, which will be held March 10 at its usual home, the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. It will mark Kimmel’s fourth time as host.

Tupac Shakur’s Estate Threatens to Sue Drake Over Diss Track Featuring AI-Generated Tupac Voice

In a cease-and-desist letter to Drake obtained exclusively by Billboard, the late rapper's estate says it is "deeply dismayed" and would "never have given its approval."

Tupac Shakur’s estate is threatening to sue Drake over a recent diss track against Kendrick Lamar that featured an AI-generated version of the late rapper’s voice, calling it a “a flagrant violation” of the law and a “blatant abuse” of his legacy.

In a Wednesday cease-and-desist letter obtained exclusively by Billboard, litigator Howard King told Drake (Aubrey Drake Graham) that he must confirm that he will pull down his “Taylor Made Freestyle” in less than 24 hours or the estate would “pursue all of its legal remedies” against him.
