Oppenheimer and Poor Things Lead the 2024 BAFTA nominations

The Zone of Interest  and Killers of the Flower Moon were favored with 9 nominations each while Barbie stumbled with only 5

The 77th British Academy Film Awards nominations were announced on Thursday, January 18, hosted by Naomi Ackie and Kingsley Ben-Adir, and our current Awards Leaderboard winner Oppenheimer led the pack with 13 nominations, followed closely by Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things with 11. Earning recognition in most major categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor, there seems to be no stopping Oppenheimer’s dominance this season. Two other awards season favorites, The Zone of Interest and Killers of the Flower Moon, also came up big with nine nominations each, while Barbie had the shock of the morning, scoring only five nominations and missing out on Best Film.

The biggest surprises, however, were the lack of recognition for All of Us Strangers star Andrew Scott despite nominations for each of his co-stars, as well as no love for either Willem Dafoe or Mark Ruffalo despite Poor Things’ popularity in just about every category.

The BAFTAs will be awarded on February 18, 2023, in a ceremony held at the Royal Festival Hall in London’s Southbank Centre.

Read on for the full list of BAFTA nominations. Was your favorite snubed? Let us know in the comments.
