The 2024 Academy Awards, which will take place on March 10th, will almost certainly extend the friendly feud that has existed between “Oppenheimer” and “Barbie” ever since their same-day release last summer. For the cover of the March 11, 2024, issue, the cartoonist Barry Blitt transposed the rivalry between the blockbuster films of 2023 onto the moment when, during the 2022 Oscars, the actor Will Smith walked onstage to slap the comedian Chris Rock across the face. “It’s been a great year for movies,” Blitt said. “This Oscars ceremony ought to be worth watching—even if nobody gets smacked onstage this time around.”
