This year, the Academy has roped in actors Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid to reveal the nominees in each of the 23 categories. Last year, Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams teamed up for the early morning announcement duties.
Top contenders for nominations
The best picture category now has a guaranteed 10 slots available. There is general consensus that Oppenheimer, Barbie, Poor Things, Killers of the Flower Moon and The Holdovers will all score nominations. Anatomy of a Fall, Maestro, The Zone of Interest, Past Lives and American Fiction are also seen as hot favourites and very likely to compete for the Academy`s most prestigious prize.
Two Indian films are still in the running for nominations – Vidhu Vinod Chopra`s 12th Fail and the survival drama 2018 are part of the list of 265 films eligible for Oscars 2024.
The Barbenheimer phenomenon, a viral trend which saw thousands of fans book tickets to see both films on the same day last summer, makes this year`s Oscars far more accessible than usual. While several Academy Awards ceremonies in recent years have recognised films which had little breakthrough with the general public, producers will be hoping Barbie and Oppenheimer`s likely inclusion will result in a surge in interest and viewing figures, according to the BBC.
When is the Oscars 2024 ceremony?
The 96th Academy Awards ceremony, hosted once again by Jimmy Kimmel, will take place on Sunday, March 10, at 7 p.m. ET (5:30am on March 11 for IST) on ABC and in more than 200 territories worldwide.
