The Oscar winners are never certain until that envelope is read out on stage (and sometimes not even then!), but there are odds that are in certain movies’ favour.

Given all the other awards it’s won thus far, Oppenheimer looks to be the favourite to pick up Best Picture this year, and Christopher Nolan is expected to pick up Best Director.

In the acting categories, it’s a tight race for lead star between Lily Gladstone and Emma Stone, and Cillian Murphy and Paul Giamatti. Supporting Actress seems like a lock for Da’Vine Joy Randolph, having swept the category at other awards shows, while Robert Downey Jr. is the favourite for Best Supporting Actor (although, wouldn’t it be fun if Ryan Gosling won for playing Ken?).

The question also remains whether recent Grammy Award winners Billie Eilish and Finneas can take home the Best Original Song Oscar for their Barbie tune ‘What Was I Made For?'(which would make them two-time winners!)

Who got snubbed in the Academy Award nominations?

To perhaps no one’s surprise, Oppenheimer is leading the pack this year with 13 nominations. Barbie was less lucky, with recent AACTA award-winner Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig getting overlooked in their respective categories (we’re still shook), but the film managed to land eight nominations, making it a Barbenheimer Best Picture race.

We’re also sad to see our teen idols Charles Melton (May December), and Zac Efron (The Iron Claw) get passed over, but we love seeing America Ferrera and Emily Blunt get their first noms!
