[Luxus Magazine] BAFTAs 2024: Oppenheimer and Poor Creatures Steal the Show

Oppenheimer and Poor Creatures are the big winners at the 2024 BAFTAs. The vibrant British ceremony was hosted by David Tennant, in the presence of Prince William and highlighted by a live performance from Sophie Ellis-Bextor with Murder on the Dance Floor.

 

The 77th BAFTA (British Academy Film Awards) ceremony took place on February 18, 2024, at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Following the Golden Globes in January, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer scooped seven BAFTAs, while Greta Gerwig’s Barbie went home empty-handed, despite having won two statues at the Golden Globes.

 

The British ceremony, broadcast on the BBC, was hosted by David Tennant, star of Doctor Who and Good Omens.

 

The Success of Oppenheimer

 

Often contrasted with Barbie due to their identical release dates and diametrically opposed aesthetics, Nolan’s film emerged as the grand winner of the 2024 BAFTAs. Nominated 13 times, it won awards for Best Film, Best Director, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Score, Best Leading Actor (Cillian Murphy), and Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr.). Greta Gerwig’s film left empty-handed despite its 5 nominations.

Oppenheimer generated nearly $1 billion at the box office on a $100 million budget. The film is based on the biographical work by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin about Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb. “My film ends on a note of despair. But with this trophy, I want to pay tribute to the efforts of these men and women who fight for peace and show how necessary it is. Since 1967, much progress was made before recently starting to move in the wrong direction again,” highlighted Christopher Nolan while holding his very first BAFTA trophy.
