The 2024 Oscar Nominations Are Here

The 2024 Oscar nominations have been announced. The two-headed Goliath that is Barbenheimer is well represented, with both Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer nominated for Best Picture, among a slew of other nominations each film received.
