Apple TV+ Celebrates 13 Oscar Nominations for ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ and ‘Napoleon’

In a groundbreaking achievement, Apple TV+ has secured an impressive 13 Academy Award nominations for its films, setting the stage for the highly anticipated Oscars ceremony on March 10. The acclaimed Martin Scorsese-directed ‘Killers of the Flower Moon‘ took the lead in Apple’s nominations, securing recognition in prestigious categories such as Best Picture and earning Lily Gladstone a nomination for Best Actress. Additionally, Ridley Scott’s ‘Napoleon‘ received nods for costume design, production design, and visual effects.

Apple made history in 2022 by becoming the first streaming service to win the Best Picture award with ‘CODA.’ While Apple did not receive significant awards recognition for its films in 2023 due to a less robust slate for the season, the year 2023 saw the release of two high-budget theatrical features: ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ and ‘Napoleon,’ both earning critical acclaim.

Both films adopted a unique distribution strategy, premiering widely in cinemas before becoming available on Apple TV+. ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ is currently streaming on the platform, while ‘Napoleon’ is in a video-on-demand window for purchase or rental, with plans for streaming on TV+ in February.

A notable highlight is Lily Gladstone’s nomination for Best Actress, marking her as the first Native American actress to be recognized by the Academy for her portrayal of Mollie in ‘Killers of the Flower Moon.’

Here is a breakdown of Apple’s Oscar nominations for the upcoming 2024 ceremony:

‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ Nominations:

The outcome remains uncertain until March 10, as ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ faces formidable competition from critically acclaimed films like ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer.’ While Gladstone is currently a frontrunner for Best Actress, Emma Stone in ‘Poor Thing’ is also a strong contender. It will be intriguing to see how many of these nominations Apple can convert into coveted trophies.
