“Oppenheimer” dominated the 2024 nominations for the EE BAFTA Film Awards, which actors Naomi Ackie and Kingsley Ben-Adir announced on Thursday from London. In the days leading up to the announcement, Christopher Nolan’s drama had been building momentum, taking home Golden Globe and Critics Choice trophies. It led all films with 13 BAFTA nominations, followed by “Poor Things” (11), “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “The Zone of Interest” (tied with 9) and “Anatomy of a Fall,” “The Holdovers” and “Maestro” (tied with 7).

Nolan’s Best Director nod was one of the 13 nominations that “Oppenheimer” racked up, along with Best Film, Adapted Screenplay, Leading Actor (Cillian Murphy), Supporting Actress (Emily Blunt) and Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr.).

Emma Stone was nominated for “Poor Things,” but the supporting-actor category did not include her costars Mark Ruffalo (who had made the longlist from which the nominees were drawn) and Willem Dafoe (who did not).

Glaringly, “Killers of the Flower Moon” star Lily Gladstone, who won the Golden Globe earlier this month for her performance, was absent from the Leading Actress list. So were “Killers” director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Robert De Niro made the cut for Supporting Actor, and “Killers” did get a Best Film nomination, while the seven other nods were in the below-the-line categories.

After landing on the BAFTA Film Longlist 15 times — the same number as “Oppenheimer” and “Killers of the Flower Moon” — “Barbie” ended up earning just five nominations. Those did not include Best Film or a Best Director nod for Greta Gerwig. Emerald Fennell (“Saltburn”) was also shut out, making Justine Triet (“Anatomy of a Fall”) the only woman on the Best Director list.

Cord Jefferson’s “American Fiction” received a single nomination, for adapted screenplay, while Michael Mann’s “Ferrari” received one, for sound.

The BAFTAs are the final major stop on the nominations circuit before the Oscar nominations roll in on January 23.

Hosted by David Tennant, the BAFTA Film Awards will take place on Sunday February 18.
