As many had predicted, the 96th Academy Awards was Christopher Nolan's night as Oppenheimer scooped seven Oscars.

The British-American filmmaker's acclaimed movie about the creation of the atom bomb during the Second World War won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr and Best Actor for star Cillian Murphy, who becomes the first Irish-born winner of the award.

The film, which had 13 nominations, also collected Best Original Score, Best Editing and Best Cinematography.

As he accepted his first Best Director award, Nolan said: “Thank you to those who have been there for me, believed in me for my whole career.

“Movies are just over 100 years old … we don't know where this incredible journey is going from here, but to think that I'm a meaningful part of it means the world to me. Thank you very much.”

Oppenheimer was not the only multiple winner of the night. Poor Things, directed by Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos, collected four awards, including Best Actress for Emma Stone, the second time she has taken the honour.

“Thank you for the gift of a lifetime,” said Stone. Poor Things also won Best Production Design, Best Make-up and Best Costume Design.

Egyptian-French filmmaker Arthur Harari, meanwhile, won Best Original Screenplay along with his creative partner and wife Justine Triet.

But as much as there was to celebrate in Los Angeles, the continuing tragedy in Gaza was not forgotten throughout the night, with many stars including Ramy Youssef and Mahershala Ali wearing Gaza ceasefire pins on their lapels.

The Israel-Gaza War was also alluded to during acceptance speeches, with Murphy dedicating his award to the world's “peacemakers” and English director Jonathan Glazer tying his film The Zone of Interest directly to the current conflict.

There were numerous major moments, including Downey Jr's first win, but a number of potential history-making awards did not come to pass. Kaouther Ben Hania did not win Best Documentary for Four Daughters, which would have made her the first Arab woman to win an Academy Award. And Lily Gladstone failed to win Best Actress, which would have made her the first indigenous woman to do so.
