2024 Oscar Highlights

Once a year, the Oscars are held to award the people that went above and beyond to make amazing films and shows. The award is one of the highest honors in the film industry that one can receive. This year, one film dominated a lot of the awards, but I wanted to highlight a few of the wins in this post today.

Best Supporting Actor – Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. finally got his first Oscar for his role in Oppenheimer. While Robert should have received and Oscar for other roles that he had portrayed, such as Tony Stark, this renowned actor finally was recognized for his acting and skills.

Best Actor – Cillian Murphy

Like Robert Downey Jr., Cillian Murphy also received his first Oscar last night. Cillian has been a talented actor for years and he finally got recognized for his skill for his role as Oppenheimer in the film Oppenheimer.

Best Director – Christopher Nolan

As the director behind one of the most successful films last year, Christopher Nolan received and Oscar as well for his efforts. Nolan is a renowned director who is known for his different processes for creating films. This unique style has made his films something different that the audience loves.

Best Cinematography, Original Score, Film Editing – Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer dominated the Oscars last night with multiple wins. The film was renowned and perceptive changing and was shot very well. It also had a great original score as well. Everyone on the team for the film did a great job and therefore the film won a majority of the rewards at the Oscars.

Best Visual Effects – Godzilla Minus One

Godzilla: Minus One received an Oscar for the best visual effects. This was a shocker especially for me, because usually a Marvel or science fiction film gets this award. But Godzilla: Minus One also taught the film industry a very important lesson about visual effects. Godzilla: Minus One only had $10-$12 million dollar budget, and was able to make an amazing film with great visual effects. A typical Marvel or other sci-fi film has an insane budget of $200 million or more. Therefore, the budget for visual effects does not need to be high to make a good sci-fi film.

Other Oscars

Emma Stone received an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Poor Things. Da’Vine Joy Randolph received Best Supporting Actress for The Holdovers. The Boy and the Heron received best animated feature. There were other Oscars that were won, but those were the other highlighted wins I wanted to share.

My Thoughts

Years ago, the Oscars used to be a prestigious award given to people who went above and beyond to make the best possible film for the audience. However, now the Oscars just feels like famous people giving other famous people pats on the back. Some of the Oscars that were awarded last night were well deserved, while others just felt like a pat on the back from one celebrity to another.

With Jimmy Kimmel hosting the Oscars, I couldn’t watch it because his jokes were so bad and awful. The inappropriate jokes that were made to Robert Downey Jr, and the disappointing joke that John Cena participated in, just made fun of people and that was just sad. The thing that makes a joke is when everyone laughs. And I assure you not everyone was laughing at every joke told last night.

The Oscars always remind me of one thing. These celebrities are always receiving awards and honors for their work (and some of them are well deserved), but as Christians when we help others and grow in Christ, we are receiving crowns that we will receive in heaven that we will throw at our Lord’s feet. This earth is only temporary, and so is its awards and recognitions. Therefore, we must keep our eyes on the prize in heaven.
