The stars of Oscar frontrunner Oppenheimer reunited on the red carpet at the annual luncheon for the Academy Awards nominees.
Irish star Cillian Murphy, who is nominated for the best actor prize for his role as J Robert Oppenheimer, the theoretical physicist described as the father of the atomic bomb, in Christopher Nolan’s epic biopic, was joined by his co-stars Emily Blunt and Robert Downey Jr for the event at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
Blunt is nominated for the best supporting actress prize for her turn as Oppenheimer’s wife Kitty, while Downey Jr is considered the favourite to win the best supporting actor Oscar for his role as Lewis Strauss, the chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission.
Barbie director Greta Gerwig was also at the luncheon, despite her snub in the best director category. She is nominated as a screenwriter on the film, alongside her husband Noah Baumbach.
The film marks a reunion for the duo, who previously worked together on The Favourite, which landed British actress Olivia Colman her Oscar.
She is nominated for her performance in Martin Scorsese’s Western crime epic Killers Of The Flower Moon.
