It’s expected that a tonne of amazing films, thrilling performances, outstanding directing efforts, captivating storylines, and much more will be nominated for (and maybe win) Oscars in 2024. Given the history created with victors in the acting categories like Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan, the candidates and winners of the 2023 Oscars generally presented a new adjustment to the Academy’s voting history in respect to genre and diversity.
It is anticipated that the 2024 Oscars will take a similar course, honouring some of the top films of 2023 that have some highly praised narratives and performances that are unlikely to be forgotten.
Predicting which films will receive Oscar nominations is still a bit difficult because awards season is still relatively early. This year in particular, there are some significant restrictions on the categories that actors can run for, possibly due to the present SAF-AFTRA strike.
Expected contenders such as Barbie, Oppenheimer, and Killers of the Flower Moon have already made a big impression, but a number of other esteemed films are also worth considering. Let’s review the current predictions for winners and nominees as the Oscars 2024 get nears. The nominations will be revealed in just a few months.
Because of the film revenue, Barbie and Oppenheimer’s narrative still has a lot of legs going into the Oscars. They might divide the vote between the director and the picture. But given the Greta Gerwig element, I don’t think that’s feasible. Every time she wins, I’ll enjoy seeing her win. How can Barbie not win Best Picture if she wins Best Director? How can Barbie not win Director if she wins Picture?
In the end, the storyline of Oppenheimer vs. Killers of the Flower Moon should determine the Best Picture contest as well as the Oscars in 2024. While it’s still early in the awards season, there’s always a chance that other front-runners and contenders will surface. For example, Barbie would be a well-liked choice for an Academy hoping to stay relevant and draw crowds to the ceremony. Meanwhile, Maestro, The Holdovers, and Poor Things should garner widespread support.
Nevertheless, it’s hard to go past Oppenheimer and Killers of the Flower Moon at the moment, as both have garnered a lot of praise and have long been considered the favourites. Both are probably going to score highly on a number of ballots because to the preferential voting mechanism. Though there is still plenty of time for this to be debated before the Oscars in 2024, Oppenheimer currently has the advantage because it appears that it will win large in the acting categories and dominate the below-the-line ones.
