96th Academy Awards: Surprises, Triumphs, and Memorable Moments, Full List of Winners

Unexpected Losses to Unforgettable Performances at the 96th Academy Awards Ceremony

By Dolores Quintana

Hollywood’s biggest night is over, and the results of the 96th Academy Awards are in. There were upsets and disappointments. Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece “Killers of the Flower Moon” was shut out, with “Oppenheimer” and “Poor Things” taking home most of the honors.

Jonathan Glazer’s intense and innovative Holocaust drama “The Zone of Interest” was also honored, as was the 37 entry in the Godzilla franchise, “Godzilla Minus One,” a film greeted with accolades from all over the world as a great, emotional monster horror film. 

Highlights of the evening included the best score segment, in which Osage singers, drummers, and dancers performed a song from the late Robbie Robertson’s score, “Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People).” 

John Cena presented Best Costume Design without clothing, making a point about why costume design is a vital part of filmmaking, and 20 Days in Mariupol filmmaker Mstyslav Chernov noted that the award was the first Ukrainian Oscar and expressed his wish that he never had to make the film in the first place. 

Ryan Gosling’s performance of the best original nominated song, “I’m Just Ken,” was a big production number that even included Slash of Guns ‘N Roses.

The ceremony managed to come in at under three and a half hours.
