Oscars Preview: Key Contenders and Categories #

As the 96th annual Academy Awards approach, Hollywood’s biggest night is expected to bring some fierce competition and surprises. Universal’s “Oppenheimer,” which received the most nominations with thirteen, is a strong contender for multiple categories including best picture, best director, and best actor. Other films, such as Searchlight’s “Poor Things,” Apple’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” and Warner Bros.’ “Barbie,” also received significant recognition. The best actress category is highly competitive, with Lily Gladstone and Emma Stone as frontrunners. Greta Gerwig’s absence from the Best Director nominations for “Barbie” continues to generate debate. The Oscars ceremony will be aired live on ABC at an earlier time than usual.
