2024 Oscars predictions; see full list here…


With the end of 2023 quickly approaching, there are plenty of marvelous movies, exciting performances, great directorial efforts, sizzling screenplays, and so much more that are predicted to receive nominations (and maybe even win) at the Oscars 2024. The nominees and winners at the 2023 Oscars largely offered a fresh change to the Academy’s voting history in relation to genre and diversity, especially with the history made with winners in the acting categories like Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan. The 2024 Oscars are expected to follow a similar path, ready to reward some of the best movies of 2023, with some highly-regarded stories and performances that aren’t apt to be forgotten.

It’s relatively early in awards season, which means predicting the movies that will get Oscar nominations is still a little tricky. Predicted nominees like BarbieOppenheimer, and Killers of the Flower Moon have already opened wide, but there are several more prestigious films that will fancy their chances. With under two months until the Oscars 2024 nominations are announced, let’s run through the current predictions for winners, with nominee predictions also outlined. We’ll keep this updated as awards season continues to bring twists, turns, and new contenders.

Oscars nomination for Movie :

The Oppenheimer vs. Killers of the Flower Moon narrative looks set to define the Oscars 2024, and should also be what defines the Best Picture race. Of course, it’s certainly not impossible for other frontrunners and contenders to emerge; something like Barbie would be a popular choice for an Academy looking to be more relevant and attract audiences to the ceremony, while the likes of Poor ThingsThe Holdovers, and Maestro should have a lot of admirers across the board.

Oscars nomination for Director :

Christopher Nolan has, surprisingly, only been nominated for Best Director once (for Dunkirk). In contrast, Martin Scorsese has nine nominations so far, but only one win (for The Departed). They’re the two frontrunners in this category at the Oscars 2024, so will the Academy look to give Nolan what many would see as an award not only deserving for Oppenheimer, but also his entire body for work? Or will they look to award Scorsese, with Killers of the Flower Moon also worthy, but also realizing that the master should probably have more than one statue? That’s the decision facing voters, and which will decide this race.

Oscars nomination for Actress :

When Poor Things won the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, it seemed as though Emma Stone was an early lock for the Best Actress prize at the Oscars 2024: already an awards favorite despite just being in her early-30s (with three nominations, one win), she’s the star of Yorgos Lanthimos’ new movie and received the most attention and praise for its win. However, Lily Gladstone coming into this category shakes things up massively, and might be enough to take the Oscar away from Stone.

Nomination for Actor :

Another incredibly tough acting category, at first blush this is another Oppenheimer vs. Killers of the Flower Moon showdown. Cillian Murphy and Leonardo DiCaprio have both received huge amounts of praise for their performances, and in a lesser year either would be just about guaranteed to win the prize. Murphy, despite having never been nominated before, perhaps has the slight edge from playing such a well-known and complicated role, but it’s a close call. Eight of the last 13 awards here have gone to someone playing a real-life figure, and so that’s surely set to continue.
