On Sunday, March 10th, the annual Oscars Award show kicked off at 7:00 pm EDT in Los Angeles, California. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show and provided the audience with outstanding reviews on many nominated movies and films. With twenty-four categories, many actors and directors went home with the honor of winning an Oscar. 

On the red carpet, many talented actors, directors, artists, and more showed up in outstanding outfits, showing their personalities and style while celebrating the best works of 2023 and 2024.

Major movies this year include Oppenheimer, directed by Christopher Nolan, and Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, which shocked the watchers with breathtaking and moving messages. Oppenheimer won the most Oscars out of all the nominees, taking home seven out of thirteen nominations. On the other hand, Barbie was nominated for nine awards due to their educational message on women sacrificing themselves for others and forgetting their own happiness. The song, “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish took home the only Oscar out of all the Barbie Nominations. 

Watching at home, junior Helen Concannon watched many of the films this year. She notes, “All of the movies were so spectacular to watch and they all had an amazing message. My favorite movie this year was “Poor Things.” Emma Stone was a leading role and won Actress in a Leading Role. Overall, Jimmy Kimmel did an amazing job, and all of the winners deserved what they worked so hard on.”’

Other award winners include Holly Waddington for Best Costume Design, “The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar” for Best Short Film, and many more creative, and talented people who were congratulated on being a part of the best films of the year. Another Oscar Awards watcher, Sam Ruddick, thought, “Watching Oppenheimer win so many awards just proved how good the movie was. Every person who put in work to make that movie be what it became should be awarded. The awful story about the atomic bomb came to life in the film.” 

Some of the best performances were also included in the award show including, “I’m Just Ken,” sung by Ryan Gosling, and the award-winning song, “What Was I Made For?” by Billy Eilish. These performances stunned the crowd, providing them with something to listen to. 

Overall, The 2024 Oscars were a huge success, and awarded so many works for their amazing creation of these films.
