Oscars 2024: A Night to Remember

The 96th Academy Awards ceremony, hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), unfolded on March 10, 2024, at the iconic Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the award ceremony, adding some humor with jokes about past Oscars mistakes, like the mishap with “La La Land” being announced as Best Picture. 

 

Kimmel also announced his intention to share a review of his hosting skills he found online with the audience. Surprisingly, it turned out to be a critique from former President Donald Trump

“Jimmy Kimmel’s hosting at the Oscars on Truth Social, stating, “Has there EVER been a WORSE HOST than Jimmy Kimmel at The Oscars? His opening was that of a less than average person trying too hard to be something which he is not, and never can be. Get rid of Kimmel and perhaps replace him with another washed up, but cheap, ABC ‘talent,’ George Slopanopoulos.”

 

Kimmel replied humorously,

“I’m surprised you’re up this late. Isn’t it past your jail time?”

 

However, another highlight of the award ceremony shows references to John Cena paying homage to the notorious 1974 Oscars streaking incident by presenting the Best Costume Design Oscar to “Poor Things” while appearing unclothed, except for a flesh-toned garment covering his lower body. He tactfully used the winner’s envelope to shield himself and swiftly changed his attire when the lights dimmed.

 

 

Furthermore, “I’m Just Ken” stole a major highlight of the night when Ryan Gosling elevated his “Kenergy” to new heights on Sunday’s Oscar stage while performing “I’m Just Ken” from the movie “Barbie.” 

 

The powerful ballad, sung by Gosling in the film, received a nomination for Best Original Song. Gosling commenced his performance in a striking, shimmering hot pink suit adorned with sparkling rhinestones while seated behind “Barbie” star Margot Robbie. He then ascended to the stage for a breathtaking finale. 

 

Surrounded by a burst of pink and rhinestones, Gosling donned Barbie-inspired sunglasses and took center stage in a spectacle that included a multitude of backup dancers, including his “Barbie” co-stars Simu Liu and Ben Kingsley-Adair, all portraying different versions of Ken from the film.

 

The major highlight of the night was Christopher Nolan’s movie “Oppenheimer,” which won seven Academy Awards out of 11 nominations on Sunday, including Best Picture. The film, directed by Christopher Nolan, tells the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist behind the atomic bomb, and it also received awards for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Score, and Best Director.

 

 

Disney and Searchlight’s film “Poor Things” took home four awards, including Best Actress, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph won the first award of the night for Best Supporting Actress, for her role in Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers.” Robert Downey Jr. won Best Supporting Actor for “Oppenheimer,” while his co-star Cillian Murphy won Best Actor. Emma Stone took home the Best Actress award for her performance in “Poor Things.”
