Oppenheimer and Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things are the big winners of the 2024 Oscars after scooping eleven awards on Sunday evening.

Oppenheimer won best picture and best actor for Cillian Murphy. The film, which received thirteen nominations, also won best supporting actor for Robert Downey Jr and best director for Christopher Nolan. It also won awards for best film editing, cinematography, and original score.

“I’m in a little bit of a daze, [and] I’m very overwhelmed, humbled and grateful and very proud to be Irish standing here today,” Murphy said,

“This movie is so special to me—myself and Chris (Nolan) have such a special relationship,” he said. “We’ve been working together for 20 years, I think he’s the perfect director…I can’t believe my luck. I did a screen test with him when I was a kid and I thought that would be it!”

Emma Stone was awarded best actress for her role in Poor Things, which also won best production design, make-up, and costume design.

Emma Stone looked genuinely shocked when her name was announced for best actress earlier. “I think I blacked out! I was very shocked,” she said backstage.

“I still feel like I’m spinning a little bit,” she said. “It’s a huge honor and I’m very surprised.” She said she learned a lot from playing Bella Baxter in Yorgos Lanthimos’ film.

“The chance to play a person starting from scratch but in a metaphorical…way who’s gaining language and skills in a rapid pace…she was just full of joy and curiosity and true love, not just of the good but of the challenging of life and was fascinated by all of it,” she said.

“That was amazing to take with me,” said Stone. “I really miss playing her—and it was two and a half years ago we wrapped…I’m really glad we get to celebrate tonight!”
