Who is nominated for an Oscar in 2024?

The list of 2024 Oscar nominees is a doozy this year because it’s full of favourites, snubs and surprises. As expected, Oppenheimer nabbed 13 Oscar nods. Poor Things came in second with 11, Killers Of The Flower Moon received 10 nominations while Barbie got eight.

The nomination announcement was hosted by Atlanta‘s Zazie Beetz and The Boys star Jack Quaid so naturally it was a real hoot.

Who will be hosting the 2024 Oscars?

Jo Koy. HA! Jokes. After his stint at the Golden Globes, I think it’ll be a while before we see him get another crack at hosting one of these events again.

According to Variety, Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting The Oscars. The late-night talk show host has previously hosted 2017, 2018 and 2023 ceremonies, so I guess he’s used to all the hullabaloo.

Who will be performing at the 2024 Oscars?

After the Barbie-mania that took over the world last year, it’s no surprise that Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson will be taking the Oscars stage to perform “I’m Just Ken” from the film. But that’s not all!

It turns out that all of the nominees for Best Song will take the stage. That means we can expect to see Billie Eilish for “What Was I Made For”, Becky G with “The Fire Inside” from the Flamin’ Hot movie, Jon Batiste performing “It Never Went Away” from American Symphony and Scott George and the Osage Singers will perform “Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)” from Killers Of The Flower Moon.

I’m not sure if they’ll have time to perform the entire track each, but I think this is such an obvious and great idea for entertainment throughout the ceremony.

Who’s predicted to win an Oscar in 2024?

Look, I’m no oracle of PEDESTRIAN.TV, but it’s no brainer that Oppenheimer could (keyword: could) have a cheeky Oscars sweep at this year’s ceremony. After all, Christopher Nolan‘s historic drama copped 13 nominations.

I also believe that Lily Gladstone — the first Native American performer to be ever nominated — will cop a shiny bloke as her performance in Killers of The Flower Moon was just fantastic.

I also hope a bunch of Aussies — such as Nicky Betham and Margot Robbie — can win some trophies.

Which Aussie has the most Oscars?

If you’re wondering which Australian has the most Oscars (or if you’re trying to figure out how much you need to set a new historical record in the film industry) it’s Catherine Martin who’s the most successful Aussie when it comes to nabbing those golden blokes.

Per the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, Martin is the most decorated Aussie when it comes to The Oscars as she’s won two for Moulin Rouge! (2001) and two for The Great Gatsby (2013) in the categories of Costume Design and Production Design.
