UPDATING Oscarheimer! “Oppenheimer” Wins 7! Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor, Editing, Cinematography, Score! Full List of Winners


“Oppenheimer” wins Best Picture, 7 statues in all !

Christopher Nolan wins after 24 years of making singularly spectacular movies.

Biggest surprise of the evening: Lily Gladstone loses Best Actress to Emma Stone.

UPDATED NOTES from the press room: “Oscarheimer” is coming. Christopher Nolan’s epic has won Best Supporting Actor, Cinematography, and Editing. Also Best Actor, Score, Best Director.

So far, the Oscars are great. John Mulaney’s recap of “Field of Dreams” is sublime. “I’m Just Ken” was the highlight of the night. In Memoriam was, as usual, a mess. The Bocellis are the worst over singers in history. It was impossible to see the featured people. It was all about the Bocellis. This segment was botched.

Oscars begin at 4pm West Coast, 7pm Eastern. Keep refreshing…

The audience is getting instructions. Stage manager tells audience: “Don’t fuck this up!”

Note: it’s taken a half hour to give one award. This will be a long night.

No one’s noticed that the supporting actors winners have the same initials. RDJ and JDR
