How to Watch the 2024 Oscars

The Academy Awards are finally (almost) here, sending off the spectacular cinematic year of 2023 with bang.

The 2024 Oscars will take place Sunday, March 10, with Jimmy Kimmel returning to host. This year’s crop of contenders range from “Barbie” to “Oppenheimer,” “American Fiction” to “The Holdovers,” and “Anatomy of a Fall” to “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

While certain categories seem to have a sure frontrunner — like Lily Gladstone in the Best Actress race for her performance in Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Oppenheimer” star Robert Downey Jr. as Best Supporting Actor, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Best Supporting Actress for “The Holdovers” — others are thoroughly a toss-up in terms of predictions.

Will Best Adapted Screenplay go to Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig for “Barbie,” to Christopher Nolan for his WWII epic “Oppenheimer,” or to Cord Jefferson for his satirical take on novel “Erasure,” which gave us “American Fiction”? Is Best Actor a surefire lock for Cillian Murphy in “Oppenheimer,” or will Paul Giamatti scoop up the title for “The Holdovers”? Should the academy already be carving “Christopher Nolan” into the Best Director trophy, or can Justine Triet come out on top for “Anatomy of a Fall”?

And that’s not even touching the Best Picture race: “Oppenheimer” has the most nominations, but there is also Bradley Cooper’s “Maestro,” Celine Song’s “Past Lives,” and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Poor Things.” “American Fiction” and “Anatomy of a Fall” have been coming on particularly strong as of late.

The 2024 Academy Award nominees are among the most diverse ever, and the slated presenters are almost as highly-anticipated at this year’s nominees themselves. A “Scarface” reunion in the works with Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer taking the stage together in honor of the Brian de Palma film‘s 40th anniversary, while “Everything Everywhere All at Once” co-stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan, (and dual Oscar winners) will return to present awards.

Performances from Billie Eilish and Finneas, Diane Warren, Becky G, Jon Batiste, and even Ryan Gosling are also confirmed for this year’s ceremony.

The 96th Oscars are executive produced by Katy Mullan, Molly McNearney, and showrunner Raj Kapoor. The 2024 Oscars will air live on on ABC on Sunday, March 10 starting at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. Audiences can tune in to watch the 96th Oscars at the new time and follow along on,, or on the Academy’s Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook pages.
