The 96th Oscars, held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, saw Liza among hundreds of celebrities gathered to celebrate the cinematic achievements of 2023. 

This year's ceremony was particularly buzzing with anticipation for the nominations of the year's most talked-about films, Barbie and Oppenheimer.

Oppenheimer led the charge with an impressive 13 nominations, including best picture and best actor for Cillian Murphy, who is favored to win after previously securing a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, and a SAG award for his portrayal of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer.

The film's nomination tally, which also boasts nods for best supporting actor and actress for Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt, as well as best director for Christopher Nolan, is just shy of the record set by Titanic in 1998. 

On the other hand, Barbie, despite securing eight nominations, encountered notable omissions from the Academy.
