The latest Oscar ceremony was a spectacle of emotions and unforgettable moments. Dominating the event was the film "Oppenheimer," which clinched a whopping 7 awards, but that wasn't the only cause for celebration. Among the honored productions was the British-Polish-American co-production "The Zone of Interest," marking a significant Polish presence in the international film arena.

The Dominance of "Oppenheimer"

Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" stole the spotlight in the most coveted categories, winning awards for Best Picture and Best Director. The film also received accolades for Best Cinematography (Hoyte van Hoytema), Best Editing (Jennifer Lame), Best Score (Ludwig Göransson), and for the acting roles of Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. By securing 7 Oscars from 13 nominations, "Oppenheimer" set a high bar for future productions.

"The Zone of Interest" and Its Polish Accent

Meanwhile, "The Zone of Interest," a product of British-Polish-American collaboration, was awarded the Oscar for Best International Feature Film. This represents a significant achievement for the Polish creators involved in the film's production. The nearly exclusive use of German in its dialogues allowed it to compete in this prestigious category, representing the United Kingdom.

Another highlight of the evening was the awarding of the documentary "20 Days in Mariupol," a testament to the siege of Mariupol by Russian forces. This film documents war crimes and was recognized by the American Academy of Film Arts and Sciences as the first Ukrainian production in Oscar history.

A Celebration on the International Stage

The 2024 Oscars will be remembered not only for "Oppenheimer" but also for the recognition of international collaboration and the Polish contribution to global cinematography. The award for "The Zone of Interest" underscores the importance of international co-productions and confirms that Polish creators are valued worldwide. This ceremony demonstrated that there are no boundaries in film, and Polish cinematography holds a strong position on the international film market.
