Wins: Best Picture, Best Actor (Cillian Murphy), Best Director (Christopher Nolan), Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr), Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin J. Smith, Oppenheimer skilfully immerses us in the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the visionary physicist and architect of the atomic bomb who grappled with the devastating consequences of his creation. Oppenheimer’s (Cillian Murphy) journey unfolds from his days as a student in Europe to a professor in California and ultimately to New Mexico, where he spearheaded the Manhattan Project – the top-secret US programme to build the atomic bomb during World War II. Told in a non-linear style between multiple time periods, brace yourself for a showdown with Oppenheimer’s nemesis Lewis Strauss (Robert Downey Jr) which unfolds through tense government hearings to revoke Oppenheimer’s security clearance and tarnish his public image. Clocking in at just over three hours long and featuring a star-studded cast including Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, and Emily Blunt, it's no surprise this biopic was a big winner this year's Academy Awards.
