This year, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is the most nominated film with 11 Oscar nominations under its belt.

While Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, which became the first female-directed film to gross over a billion dollars, garnered 8 nominations.Bradley Cooper richest Oscar nomineeSome of the stars of both those films, Robert Downey Jr. and Tempus cover star Ryan Gosling, are among the richest Oscar nominees this year. In fact, Ryan is the highest paid actor on the list of nominees for his role as Ken in Barbie. He is also the third most searched actor in the past year, behind only Robert Downey Jr. and Bradley Cooper.

The richest Oscar nominee this year, however, is Robert de Niro with a net worth of $500 million, who is nominated for his role in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. He is followed by Marvel alum Robert Downey Jr., who comes in at $300 million. Bradley Cooper, who is nominated for his lead role in Maestro, a film he also directed, follows close behind at $120 million.Robert de NiroThe richest female Oscar nominee this year is Jodie Foster, nominated for her role in Nyad, with $100 million to her name.
