For nearly a century, the Oscars have stood as a beacon of recognition and celebration in the film industry. This year, as the 96th Academy Awards approach, anticipation is high to honor the outstanding achievements of 2024 in cinema. Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming Oscars and where to catch the action in Nigeria.

Date and Time

The 2024 Oscars Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 10, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony kicks off at 4 pm Los Angeles time, translating to 11 pm UK time and 12 am Nigerian time.

How to Watch

Viewers in Nigeria can catch the Oscars live on ABC or through various streaming services like Hulu Live TV, YouTubeTV, AT&T TV, and FuboTV.

Host

Jimmy Kimmel, renowned host, comedian, writer, and producer, will return to host the Oscars for the fourth time. His wit and charm promise to make the ceremony entertaining and memorable.

Movies With The most Nominations

Oppenheimer

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer leads the pack this year with 13 nominations. The three-hour-long historical drama stars Cillian Murphy as the titular J. Robert Oppenheimer, inventor of the atomic bomb, alongside an all-star cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, and Matt Damon. Prepare to be amazed by the Ludwig Göransson score and explosive special effects.

Nominated For: Best Picture; Best Director (Christopher Nolan); Actor in a Leading Role (Cillian Murphy); Actor in a Supporting Role (Robert Downey Jr.); Adapted Screenplay (Christopher Nolan); Cinematography (Hoyte van Hoytema); Costume Design (Ellen Mirojnick); Sound (Willie Burton, Richard King, Gary A. Rizzo, and Kevin O’Connell); Original Score (Ludwig Göransson); Makeup and Hairstyling (Luisa Abel); Production Design (Ruth De Jong and Claire Kaufman); Film Editing (Jennifer Lame)

Poor Things

Adapted from a 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray, Poor Things centers on Bella Baxter (Emma Stone), a young woman brought back to life by an unorthodox scientist (Willem Dafoe). It’s artsy, adventurous, and whimsical—but like Saltburn, it’s not the type of movie to watch with your parents.

Nominated For: Best Picture; Best Director (Yorgos Lanthimos); Actress in a Leading Role (Emma Stone); Actor in a Supporting Role (Mark Ruffalo); Adapted Screenplay (Tony McNamara); Cinematography (Robbie Ryan); Costume Design (Holly Waddington); Original Score (Jerskin Fendrix); Makeup and Hairstyling (Nadia Stacey, Mark Coulier and Josh Weston); Production Design (James Price, Shona Heath and Zsuzsa Mihalek); Film Editing (Yorgos Mavropsaridis)

Barbie

While most of Barbie’s Oscar convo has been about the nominations it didn’t receive, it’s well worth a re-watch ahead of this year’s awards show (or a first watch if you lived under a rock last summer). Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie may not have been recognized by the Academy, but the hot pink paint shortage and Barbiecore fashion craze their movie caused most definitely were.

Nominated For: Best Picture; Actor in a Supporting Role (Ryan Gosling); Actress in a Supporting Role (America Ferrera); Adapted Screenplay (Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach); Original Song (I’m Just Ken and Billie Eilish’s What Was I Made For?); Costume Design (Jacqueline Durran); Production Design (Sarah Greenwood and Katie Spencer)

Killers of the Flower Moon

It wouldn’t be the Academy Awards without a Leonardo DiCaprio snub now, would it? He stars alongside Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro in Killers of the Flower Moon, a three-hour and 26-minute-long Scorsese masterpiece based on real-life events. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, its complex plot explores the racial injustice and serial murder that ensue after oil is discovered on the Osage Nation’s land.

Nominated For: Best Picture; Best Director (Martin Scorsese); Actress in a Leading Role (Lily Gladstone); Actor in a Supporting Role (Robert De Niro); Cinematography (Rodrigo Prieto); Original Song (Wahzhazhe); Costume Design (Jacqueline West); Original Score (Robbie Robertson); Production Design (Jack Fisk and Adam Willis); Film Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker)

Past Lives

Past Lives follows two childhood sweethearts (played by Greta Lee and Teo Yoo), who after decades apart, are reunited. Written and directed by Korean-Canadian playwright Celine Song, the bilingual film highlights the significance of the choices we make in life and love—but the most heart-wrenching part is that Song’s directorial debut is semi-autobiographical.

Nominated For: Best Picture; Original Screenplay (Celine Song)
