It’s been 10 days since the Academy bestowed their prestigious awards upon some of the most noteworthy films of the past year. The Oscars, attracting a staggering 19.5 million viewers, experienced a resurgence, marking a four-year high in viewership.

Among the standout films were “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer,” which collectively raked in a staggering $2.4 billion at the box office. Additionally, the return of seasoned directors such as Martin Scorsese with “Killers of the Flower Moon” and Yorgos Lanthimos with “Poor Things” added further depth to the cinematic landscape.

Noteworthy performances by Cillian Murphy, Emma Stone, Robert Downey Jr., and Da’Vine Joy Randolph earned them well-deserved Oscar accolades for their iconic roles. However, cinephiles are left wondering: where can we expect to see these talented actors next?

Let’s delve into the future projects of these four distinguished winners from this year’s Oscars, eagerly anticipating the next chapter of their illustrious careers.

Cillian Murphy clinched his first Oscar win for his portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer in the epic bearing the same name. Oppenheimer claimed Best Picture along with seven oscars at this year’s Academy Awards.

The film marked his six collaboration with director Christopher Nolan, but what’s next for the Irish actor?

Murphy’s portrayal of Thomas Shelby in “Peaky Blinders” has earned him widespread acclaim. Since 2013, he has been a cornerstone of the series, which has now concluded its run. However, fans need not despair, as creator Steven Knight has teased a feature-length film adaptation on the horizon, promising to bring the beloved characters to the big screen in the near future.

Since his role in Oppenheimer, Murphy starred in “Small Things Like These,” a film he not only acted in but also produced. The movie shed light on Ireland’s notorious Magdalene laundries and premiered just last month at the 74th Berlin International Film Festival.

Murphy is expected to star in and produce the long-awaited sequel to “28 Days Later,” aptly titled “28 Years Later,” where he will reprise his iconic role.

Emma Stone clinched her second Oscar win for her portrayal of the iconic Bella Baxter in “Poor Things.” She previously won the same Oscar for her role in 2016’s La La Land. Could she win a third Oscar next year? Let’s look ahead.

Stone recently completed filming for “Kinds of Kindness,” a project helmed by Yorgos Lanthimos, whose previous work was just regoznied at this year’s Oscars. We’re talking about “Poor Things”. This collaboration marks their third film together, following the success of “Poor Things” and 2018’s “The Favourite,” both of which earned Oscars.

Stone has also wrapped production for “Eddington,” a film directed by Ari Aster. Aster is best known for his work as on A24’s Horror films, Midsommar, and Hereditary.

Robert Downey Jr claimed his first Oscar win for his role in Oppenheimer. While many actors on this roster have experienced a whirlwind of diverse roles and bustling schedules over the past couple of years, Robert Downey Jr. had a different path. Since 2012, he has portrayed just five characters across eleven films.

Despite this seeming restraint, Downey Jr., the seasoned actor who secured his inaugural Oscar win for his supporting role in “Oppenheimer,” he’s lead the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Iron Man for over a decade. Following the conclusion of that remarkable journey in 2019, he has only graced the screen in two films: “Dolittle” and “Oppenheimer.” But what’s next for him?

Downey Jr.’s next project is “The Sympathizer,” a mini-series where he will showcase his versatility by portraying multiple roles in a narrative set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War. With the series slated for an HBO premiere next month, audiences won’t have to wait long to witness his next performance.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph clinched her first Oscar triumph for her portrayal of Mary Lamb in “The Holdovers,”. This marked the first actor directed by Alexander Payne to receive this accolade. Prior to Randolph’s win, eight actors had been nominated for Oscars from Payne’s films, highlighting the director’s penchant for eliciting outstanding performances.

Looking ahead, where can audiences expect to see Randolph next?

Fans can anticipate Randolph’s return to the small screen in the fourth season of “Only Murders in the Building.” Additionally, she is set to grace the silver screen in two upcoming films: “Bride Hard” and “Shadow Force.”
