2024 Academy Award Winners

Posted on Sunday, March 10, 2024 9:43 PM

Oscar statuette

The 96th Academy Awards ceremony (best known as the Oscars) was held Sunday, March 10, 2024 in Hollywood, California at the Dolby® Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. The event was live-streamed online and broadcast on ABC.

The nominations for the 96th Oscars were announced January 24, 2024 by actors Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid. The nominations event was live-streamed online and broadcast on TV.

The ceremony kept moving and held to its 3.5 hour planned running time. This is a welcome change from as recently as a few years ago, when the proceedings went very long and started to wear out their welcome. Last yearn also was done well, so this appears to be a trend that should help the Oscars improve its reputation in the public eye.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is home to a global membership of more than 10,500 of accomplished film industry artists and leaders. Academy members from each of the 18 branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories (actors nominate actors, etc.) In the Animated Feature Film, International Feature Film and Live Action Short Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees.

How to Watch the Winners and Nominees

Some of these movies are playing in theaters, while many have already made it to home video. Being nominated usually causes some of them to make a return appearance in theaters, and winning usually causes a return engagement for at least the top-line award winners. Head over to the Academy Award® Winners and Nominees page to see where and when they're playing!
