The Biggest South Asian Moments At Oscars 2024

The South Asian representation too had its moment at 96th Academy Awards.

Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, a gripping portrayal of the atomic era's beginnings, emerged victorious at the 96th Academy Awards on Sunday, clinching seven awards, including including best picture, best actor, and best director. The film also earned Oscars for Cillian Murphy's powerful portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer and Robert Downey Jr.'s notable performance as a vindictive bureaucrat. 


Nolan's blockbuster biopic. Despite losing the box office battle to Barbie during the Barbenheimer showdown last summer, the film has now triumphed in the awards arena, with Greta Gerwig's Mattel comedy only securing one Oscar for Best Original Song. Cillian Murphy was honoured as best actor for his role, surpassing Paul Giamatti and Jeffrey Wright, while Robert Downey Jr. took home the award for the best supporting actor, competing against Robert De Niro and Ryan Gosling. While these stars surely stole the show, the South Asian representation too had its moment.
