Nominees for the 2024 Academy Awards have been announced. Actors Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid reported the nominees live on Jan. 23 from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The class of nominees includes multiple Broadway alumni.

Danielle Brooks was nominated in the category of Actress in Supporting Role for her turn as Sofia in the film adaptation of the musical “The Color Purple.” Brooks earned a Tony Award nomination for her performance in the same role in the 2015 revival. Nominated in the same category is Da’Vine Joy Randolph, who was nominated for her work in “The Holdovers.” Broadway audiences will recognize Randolph from her Tony-nominated performance as Oda Mae Brown in the 2012 musical adaptation of “Ghost.”

In the category of Actor in a Supporting Role, Mark Ruffalo and Robert De Niro were both nominated — Ruffalo for “Poor Things” and De Niro for “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Ruffalo earned a Tony nomination for his performance in 2006’s “Awake and Sing!” He most recently appeared on the Main Stem in 2017’s “The Price.” De Niro made his Broadway debut with 1986’s “Cuba & His Teddy Bear.” He co-directed and produced the 2016 musical “A Bronx Tale.”

Tony-nominated actor and producer Colman Domingo earned his first Oscar nomination for Actor in a Leading Role for his turn in “Rustin.” Domingo boasts a long list of Main Stem credits. As a performer, Domingo has been seen in the currently running “Chicago,” 2006’s “Well,” 2008’s “Passing Strange” and 2010’s “The Scottsboro Boys,” the latter for which he earned his Tony nomination. Domingo co-wrote the book for 2018’s “Summer” and, last season, served as a producer on the Tony-nominated play “Fat Ham.” 

Also nominated alongside Domingo is Tony-winning actor Jeffrey Wright, recognized for his turn in “American Fiction.” Wright won a Tony for originating the role of Belize in 1993 original production of “Angels in America: Perestroika.” He earned a second Tony nomination for originating the role of Lincoln in the 2002 Broadway premiere of “Topdog/Underdog.” Most recently, he starred in 2010’s “Free Man of Color.” Paul Giamatti earned an Oscar nod in this category for “The Holdovers.” Of his four Main Stem credits, Giamatti most recently performed in the 1999 revival of “The Iceman Cometh.” Bradley Cooper was also nominated in the Oscar’s leading actor category for his portrayal of Leonard Bernstein in “Maestro.” Cooper made his Broadway debut in 2006’s “Three Days of Rain” and earned a Tony nomination for his leading performance in 2014’s “Elephant Man” revival. Cooper was also nominated as a writer of the original screenplay for “Maestro.”

Multiple Broadway performers were nominated in the category of Actress in a Leading Role. Annette Bening was recognized for her turn in “Nyad.” Bening is a two-time Tony nominee, garnering nods for both of her Broadway outings: 1987’s “Coastal Disturbances” and 2019’s “All My Sons.” Carey Mulligan was nominated for her performance in “Maestro.” She earned a Tony nomination for her turn in 2015’s “Skylight,” having made her Main Stem debut in 2008 with “The Seagull.” Finally, Emma Stone, who replaced as Sally Bowles in the 2014 revival of “Cabaret,” was nominated for her turn in “Poor Things.” 

Stone also earned a nomination for Best Picture as a producer of the film. Similarly, Cooper earned a nod in the top category as a producer on “Maestro.”

The 96th Academy Awards will take place on March 10 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The awards will honor movies released in 2023. Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the ceremony, which will be broadcast at 7 p.m. ET on ABC.
