Christopher Nolan won Best Director and the film won two big acting awards - Cillian Murphy took Best Film Actor (Drama) and Robert Downey Jr took Best Supporting Actor (Film) for their performances as Robert Oppenheimer and Lewis Strauss. RDJ's category included Ryan Gosling who played Ken in Barbie - Barbie and Oppenheimer clashed at the global box office with tremendous results last year. Oppenheimer also won Best Score.

Lily Gladstone won Best Film Actress (Drama) for Killers Of The Flower Moon - the first win for an indigenous actor.
