The nominations for the 96th Academy Awards were officially announced by actors Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid on Wednesday, January 23, 2024 from the Film Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

Among the nominations were frontrunners like Oppenheimer, Barbie, and Poor Things, but there were also several surprises and a few shocking snubs this year, including Barbie herself, Margot Robbie, getting locked out of the race, though her co-stars, America Ferrera and Ryan Gosling, did make the cut.

Looking into Netflix specifically, the streaming service fared decently this year, picking up 17 nominations compared to last year's 16. However, it's hard to say if Netflix will win any Oscars this time around as its films have been mostly shut out from the other award ceremonies.

The 2024 Oscars will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California on March 10, 2024 and televised by ABC.

Below, we're breaking down all of Netflix's nominations.

Maestro

Netflix had several buzzy movies competing for the 2024 Oscars, but it was Bradley Cooper's Leonard Bernstein biopic that garnered the most nominations. Thus far, Maestro hasn't picked up any major awards this season, despite being nominated for both the Golden Globes and the Critics' Choice Awards. However, the film is still in contention for the Screen Actors Guild Awards and now it has seven additional chances to win big at the 96th Academy Awards.

  • Best Picture
  • Bradley Cooper, Best Actor
  • Carey Mulligan, Best Actress
  • Best Original Screenplay
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Sound
  • Best Makeup & Hairstyling

Rustin

Colman Domingo's Oscar nom received for playing civil rights leader Bayard Rustin in the biographical drama Rustin is one of the most exciting of the Netflix line-up. Domingo is an excellent actor, so it's great to see him getting more acclaim. This marks his first Academy Award nomination, though he previously won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for Euphoria.

  • Colman Domingo, Best Actor

Nyad

NYAD

The biopic about long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad starring Annette Bening and Jodie Foster received two nods, with Bening getting into a stacked Best Actress race over Barbie star Margot Robbie, much to the dismay of many. Nyad didn't make many waves this awards season, so people were shocked to see it show up on the list of nominations, though, to be fair, both Bening and Foster were also nominated for the SAG Awards and Golden Globes, so it was always going to be a tight race.

  • Annette Bening, Best Actress
  • Jodie Foster, Best Supporting Actress

May December

And here we come to the biggest Netflix snub of all. May December failed to pick up any major acting nominations despite the near-unanimous praise for star Charles Melton, in particular. Melton won a Gotham Award for his performance and he, Julianne Moore, and Natalie Portman were also all nominated for Golden Globes.

Interestingly, May December was also snubbed completely by the SAG Awards. There is something deeply ironic about the Academy nominating three other Netflix biopics yet shunning the one that scrutinizes Hollywood's obsession with creating spectacle from real-life trauma. Hmm.

  • Best Original Screenplay
