Leonardo DiCaprio was also absent from the acting category. Lily Gladstone made history as the first Native American nominated for best actress.

Highlights from the 96th Academy Awards Nominations (2024)

The 2024 Oscar nominations were revealed today, with “Oppenheimer” leading with 13 nods, followed by “Poor Things” with 11. The 96th annual Academy Awards come after a year marked by the “Barbenheimer” phenomenon of “Barbie” and Christopher Nolan’s World War II biopic, both hugely successful at the box office.

Tuesday’s announcement held surprises, notably the absence of a best director nomination for Greta Gerwig for “Barbie.” She, along with Noah Baumbach, secured a nomination for the movie’s adapted screenplay. Star and producer Margot Robbie of “Barbie” also missed out on an acting nod, prompting disappointment from Ryan Gosling, nominated for his role as Ken. Leonardo DiCaprio, starring in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” was also not recognized in the acting category this year.

Lily Gladstone, DiCaprio’s co-star, made history as the first Native American nominated for best actress. America Ferrera earned a best supporting actress nomination for “Barbie,” rebounding from her Golden Globe snub.
