Oscars 2024: Channel, time, nominees, and presenters

Are the 96th Academy Awards little more than a coronation for Oppenheimer, or will a surprise movie drop a metaphorical bomb by taking Best Picture this year? That is precisely what many of us will be tuning in to find out when the 2024 Oscars air live on ABC on Sunday, March 10th, at the new (and earlier) time of 4 PM PDT / 7 PM EDT. bethoki77

How to watch the ceremony

If you want to watch along live, you can tune in over-the-air to your local ABC station with your cable subscription or an antenna. You can also watch on ABC.com or the ABC app, but you will need a cable login. There are also several live TV streaming services that carry ABC, including YouTube TV, Hulu Live TV, DirecTV Stream, and Fubo.

There are 23 categories being voted on by members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the 96th Academy Awards, all of which you can peruse on the Oscars 2024 website. Unsurprisingly, Oppenheimer leads the way with 13 nominations, putting it in contention for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and more.

While Oppenheimer is the odds-on favorite to win the award, the other Best Picture contenders include American FictionAnatomy of a FallBarbieThe HoldoversKillers of the Flower MoonMaestroPast LivesPoor Things, and The Zone of Interest. bethoki77

Tech. Entertainment. Science. YouControversially, Barbie was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay despite not being adapted from any previous work. The Academy also ruffled feathers by failing to nominate Greta Gerwig for directing one of the most celebrated and successful movies of 2023. At the very least, there isn’t much doubt the blockbuster will win for Best Original Song. bethoki77
