'Oppenheimer' leads the nominations for the 2024 EE BAFTA Film Awards with 13.

Christopher Nolan could be set to secure his first win in nine nominations when he contends for the Best Director prize at next month's ceremony, while the atomic bomb saga is also up for the coveted Best Film prize, as well as securing places on the shortlists for the Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Editing, Costume Design, Make-up and Hair, Original Score, Production Design, and Sound categories. In addition, Cillian Murphy is nominated for Leading Actor, and co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt are up for Supporting Actor and Actress respectively.

Following 'Oppenheimer' is Poor Things, which scooped 11 nominations including for Best Film and Best Actress for Emma Stone, who will compete against Margot Robbie ('Barbie'), Carey Mulligan ('Maestro'), Sandra Huller ('Anatomy of a Fall'), Fantasia Barrino ('The Color Purple') and Vivian Oparah ('Rye Lane'). Golden Globe winner Lily Gladstone's performance in 'Killers of the Flower Moon' is a notable absence in that category.

And while Margot is up for Best Actress, 'Oppenheimer's box office rival 'Barbie' managed just five nominations, despite having 15 places when the longlists were announced earlier this month. These include nods for Original Screenplay, Costume Design and Production Design, as well as a Best Supporting Actor nod for Ryan Gosling.

Joining 'Oppenheimer' and 'Poor Things' in the Best Film category are 'Anatomy of a Fall', 'The Holdovers', and 'Killers of the Flower Moon', while Best Director has just one female nominee, 'Anatomy of a Fall' filmmaker Justine Trier, who will contest for the prize alongside Christopher, Jonathan Glazer ( 'The Zone of Interest'), Andrew Haigh ('All of Us Strangers'), 'Maestro's Bradley Cooper - who is also up for Leading Actor - and Alexander Payne ('The Holdovers'), none of whom have ever won the award in the past.

Joining Cillian and Bradley in the Leading Actor category will be Barry Keoghan ('Saltburn'), 'The Holdovers' actor Paul Giamatti - who has already won Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards for the role - Colman Domingo for 'Rustin', and Teo Yoo for 'Past Lives'.

The ceremony will take place at the Southbank Centre in London on 18 February, hosted by David Tennant.
