Oppenheimer Lights Up the Bafta Ceremony

The poster of the film Oppenheimer, a real success at the Baftas

The Bafta 2024 evening saw the biopic Oppenheimer, directed by Christopher Nolan, stand out by winning seven awards, including those for best film and best director. This cinematic tribute to J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, captivated millions of viewers around the world, generating nearly a billion dollars.

Heavyweight competitors like Barbie had to bow out, leaving without any distinction. The competition was intense, especially with films such as Anatomy of a Fall by French Justine Triet, Winter Break, Killers of the Flower Moon, Poor Things and The Zone of Interest, but Oppenheimer managed to prevail in the most prestigious categories.

The victory of Cillian Murphy as best actor for his role as J. Robert Oppenheimer and that of Robert Downey Jr, best supporting actor, mark the success of the film. Christopher Nolan therefore receives his first Bafta as best director, under the standing ovation of the audience.

Emma Stone was crowned best actress for her role in Poor Things. Her performance described as a "female Frankenstein" was praised. The film was also recognized in several technical categories, proving the extent of its success.
