Oscar Nominations 2024: From “Barbie” to Lily Gladstone, the Full List of Nominees

Oscar Nominations 2024 feature image from Killers of the Flower Moon

Attention Awards gays! The nominations for the 96th Academy Awards have arrived! Oppenheimer leads with 13 nods, but there are plenty of other movies to be excited about. Killers of the Flower Moon received 9 nods — most notably for queer actor Lily Gladstone in the Best Actress category. And, of course, possible heterosexual satire and definite box office hit Barbie secured 8 nominations despite being left out of the Best Actress and Best Director category.

Annette Bening and Jodie Foster were both nominated in Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively for NYAD. And Foster makes history along with Colman Domingo for Rustin as two out actors playing out characters to be nominated.

I’m also very excited Anatomy of a Fall, a masterful film with a bisexual protagonist, managed to be nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress, and Best Editing. It’s joined by The Zone of Interest in proving that Parasite‘s 2020 win was not a fluke and the Oscars are slowly becoming a more international award show.

With a delayed Emmys and the Grammys in just a couple weeks, this awards season has been even more saturated than usual. But this is the Oscars! No matter how much I try to ignore it, I still get excited by the glamour, the film history, and the possibility of some deserving artists — even some deserving queer artists! — potentially having their work recognized. And, hey, if awards aren’t your thing, you can check out a bunch of great queer movies that weren’t nominated instead.

  1. Lily Gladstone, Colman Domingo, Ryan Gosling and Danielle Brookes.
    Even though I thought The Colour Purple 2023 was not great compared with the Whoopi Goldberg Colour Purple, I love Danielle Brookes.

  2. All of Us Strangers getting shut out is a denial of justice to emotional gays with parental issues! Nominating it would have given me something fun to root for against the inevitable boring Oppenheimer sweep tbh.

  3. Kipas Folks is a free multiplayer Android mod for Stagger Folks created by Kitka Games. Being a mod, it enhances the first game by adding various highlights. You can get to recently locked skins, acts out, and maps. This mod goes further by permitting players to alter how the game functions with higher leaps and more speed. KipasGuys
