The film won best picture, while Cillian Murphy won best actor, Robert Downey Jr. won best supporting actor and Christopher Nolan won best director. “Oppenheimer” also took Oscars for best cinematography (Hoyte van Hoytema), best film editing (Jennifer Lame) and best original score (Ludwig Göransson).

“I dedicate it (Oscar) to the peacemakers everywhere,” Murphy said.

Emma Stone won best actress as “Poor Things” won four Academy Awards, adding Oscars for production design, makeup and hairstyling and costume design.

“The other night I was panicking as you can kind of see happens a lot, that maybe something like this could happen. And (‘Poor Things’ director) Yorgos (Lanthimos) said to me, ‘Please take yourself out of it and he was right, because it’s not about me,” Stone said. “It’s about a team that came together to make something greater than the sum of its parts and that is the best part about making movies.”

Da’Vine Joy Randolph won best supporting actress for her role in “The Holdovers,” earning her first Oscar.

The year’s other blockbuster movie, “Barbie,” took home just one Oscar, for best song — “What Was I Made For?” performed by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell.

“20 Days in Mariupol,” a film by The Associated Press, won best feature-length documentary.

“Oppenheimer” won every major guild and industry award including the Oscars, Variety reported. That includes the Golden Globes, Critics Choice, British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), Screen Actors Guild, Directors Guild of America and Producers Guild of America.

It is the first film to have a perfect season since “Argo” in 2012, the entertainment news website reported.

Al Pacino, who handed out the award for best picture, only named the winner and not the nine other nominees.

“I have to go to the envelope for that. And I will. Here it comes,” said Pacino, who won an Oscar for “Scent of a Woman” and became famous in the Godfather movie franchise.” And my eyes see ‘Oppenheimer.’”

This year’s Oscars were the first in which films must meet two of four representation and inclusion standards to be eligible to win best picture, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 2024 Oscars returned to the 2009 format of having five past acting winners introducing this year’s acting nominees, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show for the fourth time and promised that while the ceremony was scheduled an hour earlier than in previous years, it would run long, as usual.

“We’re already five minutes late,” Kimmel cracked.

However, the show ended on schedule, with a few minutes to spare.

This year’s presenters included previous best actor winners Nicolas Cage, Matthew McConaughey, Pacino, Brendan Fraser, Ben Kingsley and Forest Whitaker; past best actress winners Jessica Lange, Sally Field, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Michelle Yeoh; prior best supporting actor winners Mahershala Ali, Sam Rockwell, Ke Huy Quan, Tim Robbins and Christoph Waltz; and past best supporting actress winners Lupita Nyong’o, Jamie Lee Curtis, Regina King, Rita Moreno, Octavia Spencer and Mary Steenburgen.
