Oscar Predictions 2024: The Barbenheimer Showdown Will Be Pretty One-Sided

“Oppenheimer” is likely to win a lot, “Barbie” a little

"Poor Things," "Barbie," "Killers of the Flower Moon," and "Oppenheimer"

On the surface, Sunday’s Oscars seems as if it could be a very predictable show. Lots of “Oppenheimer,” a bit of “Barbie,” some “Holdovers” and “American Fiction,” with the vast majority of the pundits and prognosticators agreeing on at least 18 of the 23 categories.

Sure, Best Actor and Best Actress aren’t as locked as the other major categories, and a couple of the design categories are tossups between “Barbie” and “Poor Things.” Plus the shorts are always a little pesky. But otherwise, maybe we already know what’s going to happen.

Or maybe not. The Academy has gotten much bigger over the past eight years – 9,797 eligible voters this time around, according to official counts – and much more international.
