The Next Best Picture Podcast – A Behind The Scenes Look At “Oppenheimer”

Oppenheimer” has been the toast of the 2023-2024 awards season, receiving a leading total of thirteen Academy Award nominations and winning (as of this writing) the Critics Choice and Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture. Christopher Nolan’s latest masterpiece is a technical behemoth where every department worked at the top of their game to bring J. Robert Oppenheimer’s story to life on the largest scale possible, impressively shot in IMAX. The Next Best Picture team was fortunate to speak with many of the Oscar-nominated craft members throughout this awards season. First, we have my interview with cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, followed by Brendan Hodges’ interview with the film’s editor, Jennifer Lame, and sound designer, Richard King. Then we have Will Mavity’s interview with makeup and hairstylist Luisa Abel. We then go back to Brendan for his talk with production designer Ruth De Jong, and we finally end with Will again speaking with costume designer Ellen Mirojnick. Each has a story to tell; each gave this movie everything they had. We hope you enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at the film, which is now available to stream on Peacock and is up for your consideration in all eligible categories at this year’s Academy Awards. Thank you!
