As the 2023-2024 movie awards season gains momentum post the Golden Globe awards, attention is now on the Oscars. The recently concluded Golden Globes saw movies like Oppenheimer, Poor Things, and Barbie receiving multiple awards, marking them as the standout films of the year.
The 81st Golden Globe Awards made history with Lily Gladstone becoming the first Indigenous winner for her role in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. This achievement sets the stage for a potential groundbreaking moment at the Academy Awards.
Following the success of Barbenheimer and a surge in Golden Globes viewership, interest in the Oscars is at an all-time high. For those eager to catch the Oscars and witness this year’s top-nominated films, here’s a timeline leading up to the ceremony.
When are the 2024 Oscars nominations being announced? The nominations for the 2024 Academy Awards will be unveiled on January 23rd, following a voting period between January 11th-16th. Tradition dictates that the nominations are disclosed in the morning or afternoon by celebrity hosts, a detail yet to be revealed.
Certain technical categories like makeup, music, and visual effects have already published shortlists on the Academy Awards website, providing insight into potential winners.
When will the 2024 Oscars take place? Disappointingly for cinema enthusiasts, the actual Academy Awards ceremony is scheduled for March 10th, 2024. Traditionally the last major awards ceremony, the Oscars hold particular significance.
The date of the Academy Awards has varied in recent years, with the 2020 awards in early February and the 2021 awards in late April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the decision to wait until mid-March aims to align with a return to normalcy in the film industry.
