OPPENHEIMER Wins Big Amid Ryan Gosling’s Kenergy, MADAME WEB Jokes, And Naked John Cena

The 96th Academy Awards ceremony took place tonight, and despite a mixed response to host Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue, it proved to be a pretty entertaining show overall.

As expected, Oppenheimer took home most of the major awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Christopher Nolan, Best Actor for Cillian Murphy, and Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr.

“Movies are just a little bit over 100 years old,” said The Dark Knight director during his acceptance speech. “I mean, imagine being there 100 years into painting or theater. We don’t know where this incredible journey is going from here. But to know that you think that I’m a meaningful part of it means the world to me.”

The Holdovers star Da’Vine Joy Randolph picked up the first award of the evening for Best Supporting Actress, while Emma Stone nabbed her second Best Actress win for Poor Things. Other notable wins include Godzilla: Minus One for Best Visual Effects, and The Boy and the Heron for Best Animated Feature.

There were plenty of memorable moments between the presentations, with a show-stopping performance of Barbie‘s “I’m Just Ken” from Ryan Gosling, some funny Batman banter with Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger calling out Michael Keaton in the audience, and John Mulaney making fun of Madame Web’s infamous “He was in the Amazon…” trailer line while presenting the award for Best Sound.

“For years, movies didn’t have sound and then they figured it out… without sound we wouldn’t have been able to hear classic lines like … ‘he was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders just before she died.'”

At one point, Peacemaker star John Cena walked on stage completely naked (with a well-placed envelope) to mark the 50th anniversary of a streaker later identified as Robert Opel running across the stage at the Academy Awards while flashing a peace sign.
