From 'Killers of the Flower Moon' to 'Barbie', and not to forget Ludwig Göransson's Oppenheimer – this is your cheat sheet for the 96th Academy Awards

The 2023 Oscars were thrilling to say the least, with the wonderfully wacky Everything Everywhere All At Once – a rip-roaring sci-fi epic filled with kung-fu battles, hot dog fingers, butt plugs, talking rocks and a Ratatouille-esque raccoon, which almost certainly would not have been considered an “Oscar movie” a decade ago – racing ahead with seven wins: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan, Best Supporting Actress for Jamie Lee Curtis, and Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh. With her victory, the latter also became the first Asian actress to secure that statuette, the first woman of colour to take it home in over two decades, and only the second to do so in 95 years. So, what history-making moments could we witness in 2024? Here’s everything you need to know about the 96th Academy Awards.
