Jan. 22 (UPI) —Oppenheimer earned a leading 13 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Cillian Murphy, Best Director for Christopher Nolan, Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr. and Best Supporting Actress for Emily Blunt, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday.

Barbie earned eight Oscar nominations. It was mentioned for Best Picture, and Best Supporting Actress and Actor co-stars America Ferrera and Ryan Gosling, but Margot Robbie, who played the titular heroine, and Greta Gerwig, who directed the blockbuster, were snubbed.

This is the first time that three of the 10 movies nominated for Best Picture — Barbie, Justine Triet’s Anatomy of a Fall and Celine Song’s Past Lives — were helmed by women.

Fellow Best Picture contenders Poor Things and Killers of the Flower Moon scored 11 and 10 nods respectively.

The other nominees in the top category are American Fiction, Maestro, The Holdovers and The Zone of Interest.

The omission of Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie was surprising in the Best Documentary category, given that it recently won four Emmy Awards.

Killers of the Flower Moon lead Leonardo DiCaprio was also left off the Best Actor shortlist after earning nominations for a Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards for his performance.

Invincible actress Zazie Beetz and The Boys actor Jack Quaid read the names of the nominees at a Hollywood ceremony.

Winners are to be announced at a gala televised live on March 10. Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the event, which will honor excellence in film for the year 2023.
