As the 96th Academy Awards approach, the question isn’t whether “Oppenheimer” will triumph but rather if director Christopher Nolan will need a wagon or a Brinks truck to transport all the anticipated golden treasures. Leading with 13 nominations, Nolan’s atomic bomb thriller stands as a formidable favorite for various categories, from technical honors to prominent races like best actor, supporting actor, and best picture.

Here are our Oscar 2024 predictions for the major categories:

Best Picture:

  • Will Win: “Oppenheimer”
  • Should Win: “Barbie”

“Oppenheimer” boasts an impressive awards-season history, securing top honors from guilds and industry groups. Barring an unlikely upset, “Oppy” seems poised for victory. However, we secretly hope for a surprise in favor of “Barbie,” Greta Gerwig’s contemporary and thematically rich creation.

Best Actress:

  • Will Win: Lily Gladstone
  • Should Win: Sandra Hüller

Stone and Gladstone’s notable wins make this category a toss-up. While Stone triumphed at Critics Choice and BAFTA, Gladstone holds the edge with a recent Screen Actors Guild trophy. A big zag would be exciting, and Hüller’s commanding performance in “Anatomy of a Fall” adds mystery and magnetism to the courtroom drama.

Best Actor:

  • Will Win: Cillian Murphy
  • Should Win: Jeffrey Wright

Murphy’s compelling performance in “Oppenheimer” and the film’s momentum make him the likely winner. Nevertheless, Wright’s portrayal in “American Fiction” showcases his versatility, making it a deserving performance for the Oscar.

Best Supporting Actress:

  • Will Win/Should Win: Da’Vine Joy Randolph

Randolph’s consistent success throughout the awards season positions her as the expected winner for her stunning portrayal in “The Holdovers.” A well-deserved victory for a remarkable performance.

Best Supporting Actor:

  • Will Win/Should Win: Robert Downey Jr.

Downey’s portrayal of antagonist Lewis Strauss in “Oppenheimer” is a career-defining performance that deserves recognition. This Oscar win would be a fitting acknowledgment of his talent and contribution to the film.

Best Director:

  • Will Win/Should Win: Christopher Nolan

With an illustrious career and a compelling filmography, Nolan’s direction in “Oppenheimer” stands out. Similar to Scorsese’s past win, it feels like Nolan’s time to be recognized for his filmmaking prowess.

As the anticipation builds for the Oscar 2024 Academy Awards, these predictions provide a glimpse into the potential winners across various categories.
