Oppenheimer looks set to sweep the board at the 2024 EE BAFTA Film Awards after receiving 13 nominations. 

Christopher Nolan’s epic biopic about atomic bomb creator J Robert Oppenheimer dominated the main categories when nominations were announced on Thursday, with nods for Best Film and for Nolan in Best Director. 

In comparison, Oppenheimer’s box office rival Barbie received just five nominations and was notably snubbed in the Best Film category. 

Cillian Murphy, 47, received his first ever BAFTA nomination for his portrayal of titular character Oppenheimer and will go head-to-head with fellow Irishman Barry Keoghan, 31, for Saltburn in the Best Actor category. 

They will battle it out with Bradley Cooper for Maestro, Colman Domingo for Rustin, Paul Giamatti for The Holdovers and Teo Yoo for Past Lives. 

Murphy’s co-stars Emily Blunt and Robert Downey Jr are also nominated in the Supporting categories.

The 2024 BAFTA nominations were announced by former EE Rising Star nominees: Naomi Ackie and Kingsley Ben-Adir from the arts charity’s headquarters at 195 Piccadilly, London on Thursday. 

The star-studded ceremony will be hosted by David Tennant at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday, February 18 and will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. 

Oppenheimer, which was a box office juggernaut when it was released in cinemas last year on the same day as Barbie – sparking the Barbenheimer phenomenon – will compete for Best Film against Yorgos Lanthimos’s gothic fairytale Poor Things, which scored 11 nods and is the second most nominated film this year. 

Also in the running is French courtroom drama Anatomy Of A Fall, Martin Scorsese’s western crime thriller Killers Of The Flower Moon and The Holdovers, about a cranky prep school teacher forced to remain on campus over the holidays with a troubled student.

Oppenheimer could see Nolan pick up his first ever Director BAFTA. 

He faces competition from All Of Us Strangers director Andrew Haigh, Anatomy Of A Fall’s Justine Triet, The Holdovers’ Alexander Payne, Maestro’s Cooper and Jonathan Glazer for The Zone Of Interest.

Notably absent from the category is Barbie’s director Greta Gerwig, while the movie – which was the highest-grossing film of 2023 – was also snubbed for Best Film. 

Under the new rules, the director longlist had equal numbers of male and female filmmakers, but there is only one woman among the six best-director nominees, Triet. 

Gerwig is, however, recognised in the Original Screenplay category alongside her husband and co-writer Noah Baumbach. 

Barbie star Margot Robbie is up for Best Actress and will compete in a category that notably excludes Killers of the Flower Moon’s Lily Gladstone, despite her awards season success so far. The Scorsese epic received nine nods in total. 

The remaining Best Actress nominees are against Poor Things’ Emma Stone, Maestro’s Carey Mulligan, Anatomy Of A Fall’s Sandra Huller, The Colour Purple’s Fantasia Barrino and Rye Lane’s Vivian Oparah.

German actress Huller is also nominated in a second category, and will battle it out for Supporting Actress for The Zone Of Interest, alongside Oppenheimer’s Blunt, Saltburn’s Rosamund Pike, The Holdovers’ Da’Vine Joy Randolph, The Colour Purple’s Danielle Brooks  and All Of Us Strangers’ Claire Foy.

Oppenheimer’s Downey Jr, will be hoping to continue his winning streak after being nominated in the Supporting Actor category. He has already won a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice award for his performance as Lewis Strauss, the chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. 

Yet he faces stiff competition from first-time BAFTA nominee Jacob Elordi for Saltburn, Robert De Niro for Killers Of The Flower Moon, Ryan Gosling for Barbie, Paul Mescal for All Of Us Strangers and Dominic Sessa for The Holdovers.

Barbie has been nominated for Original Screenplay and faces competition from Anatomy of a Fall, The Holdovers, Maestro and Past Lives.

In the Adapted Screenplay category, All of Us Strangers, American Fiction, Oppenheimer, Poor Things and The Zone of Interest go up against each other. 

The contenders for Outstanding British Film are All Of Us Strangers, How To Have Sex, Napoleon, The Old Oak, Poor Things, Rye Lane, Saltburn, Scrapper, Wonka and The Zone Of Interest. 

In the Animated Film category, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget is competing against The Boy and the Heron, Elemental and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. 

The EE BAFTA Rising Star Award is the one award on the night that will be voted for by the public, with previous winners including James McAvoy, Tom Hardy, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright and Tom Holland. 

This year sees Phoebe Dynevor, Ayo Edebiri, Jacob Elordi, Mia Mckenna-Bruce and Sophie Wilde compete for the honour. 

David Tennant is set to host the awards ceremony next month.

While David is no stranger to the ceremony, having previously presented an award at the BAFTA Television Awards in May, this will be his hosting debut.

Speaking about his hosting stint, the Good Omens star said: ‘I am delighted to have been asked to host the EE BAFTA Film Awards and help celebrate the very best of this year’s films and the many brilliant people who bring them to life.’

BAFTA CEO Jane Millichip added that the academy was ‘over the moon’ that David would be hosting the Film Awards. 

She said: ‘He is deservedly beloved by British and international audiences, alike. His warmth, charm and mischievous wit will make it a must-watch show next month for our guests at the Royal Festival Hall and the millions of people watching at home.’

Last year, acting veteran Richard graced the stage as the BAFTAs host, and during his opening monologue referenced the notorious 2022 Academy Awards moment when movie star Will Smith, 54, slapped presenter Chris Rock across the face after he jested about Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Richard told the star-studded crowd: ‘Nobody on my watch gets slapped tonight – except on the back.’

In 2022, Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids actress Rebel Wilson made risque jokes about the royal family, Vladimir Putin, the gender pay gap, her flop film Cats and her recent weight loss.

Richard added: ‘So I was surprised…and I thought because I was so unashamedly enthusiastic during the awards circuit four years ago, when I was nominated for (a BAFTA).

‘(BAFTA organisers) must know that I’m going to be a celebratory person rather than somebody who’s there to roast other actors so hopefully, that’s (going to) work out, I don’t know yet.’
