‘Oppenheimer’, ‘Poor Things’ lead 2024 BAFTA Film Awards nominations

SHARE NOW

The nominations for this year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Film Awards have been revealed and Christopher Nolan‘s Oppenheimer leads the way with 13 nominations for the ceremony sometimes colloquially referred to as the “British Oscars.” 

Coming in second place for nominations this year was Poor Things, the award-winning Emma Stone dark comedy from Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos; it earned 11. 

Oppenheimer’s nomination count — including Best Film, Leading Actor for Cillian Murphy, Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr., Supporting Actress for Emily Blunt, and Director for Nolan — was one short of the all-time BAFTA nominee leader All Quiet on the Western Front, which earned 14 last year.

Martin Scorsese’s crime epic Killers of the Flower Moon scored nine nominations, including a Film nom, and a Supporting Actor turn for Robert De Niro, but likely Oscars frontrunner Lily Gladstone wasn’t recognized in the Leading Actress category. 

Also scoring nine noms was the drama The Zone of Interest from English filmmaker Jonathan Glazer

Bradley Cooper was nominated in the Leading Actor, Director, and Original Screenplay category for his biopic Maestro, while Margot Robbie was nominated both as Leading Actress for Barbie, and as a producer in the Outstanding British Film category for backing Emerald Fennell‘s acclaimed Saltburn.
