‘Oppenheimer’: The Oscars’ Biggest Winner

News Desk1 month ago

Part of the huge “Barbenheimer” craze from last summer, Nolan’s brilliant drama about the father of the atomic bomb won acting awards for both Robert Downey Jr. in a supporting role and Cillian Murphy in the lead one.

The British-American director Christopher Nolan, who is regarded as a generational talent, stated that cinema as an art form still has the opportunity to develop.

Films are only a little over a century old. Imagine, he said to the crowd at the Dolby Theatre, “being there 100 years into painting or theatre.”

“Where this amazing voyage will go from here is unknown. But it means the world to me to know that you believe I have a significant role.

“Oppenheimer” was nominated for thirteen trophies, so while the haul was not quite total, it is still one of the most rewarded pictures in Oscar history with seven statuettes won that night.

Robert Downey Jr. received accolades for his outstanding portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer’s political adversary Lewis Strauss.

“After accepting the statuette, I would like to thank the Academy and my horrible childhood, in that order.”

After being made fun of by host Jimmy Kimmel for his well-documented drug use, Downey showered his wife Susan with gratitude for her support.

“She brought me back to life with a snarling rescue pet,” he remarked.

Moreover, Nolan’s analytical interpretation of the man he has dubbed “the most important person who ever lived” won awards for best original soundtrack, editing, and cinematography.

It felt appropriate that the history of nuclear weapons should be honored on a night when the sound of battle was always there in the air.

“We produced a movie on the atomic bomb inventor. Murphy collected his medal and remarked, “And for better or worse, we’re all living in Oppenheimer’s world, so I would like to dedicate this to the peacemakers, everywhere.”
