When and Where Are the Oscars®?

As mentioned above, the  live event will get underway a little earlier than usual on Sunday, March 10. The ceremony kicks off at 7:00 PM ET from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood


Who is Hosting the Oscars®?

For the second-straight year, Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars®. This will also be the second time Kimmel has hosted back-to-back (he also hosted in 2017-2018), and his fourth overall appearance as host.  


Who are the Presenters and Performers?

Here is the full list of presenters at the 2024 Oscars®: Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Keaton, Regina King, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate McKinnon, Rita Moreno, John Mulaney, Catherine O’Hara, Octavia Spencer, Ramy Youssef, Mahershala Ali, Nicolas Cage, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brendan Fraser, Jessica Lange, Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong’o, Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ke Huy Quan, Sam Rockwell, Michelle Yeoh, Zendaya, Ariana Grande, Issa Rae, Anya Taylor-Joy, Emily Blunt, Cynthia Erivo, America Ferrera, Ryan Gosling, Sally Field, Ben Kingsley, Steven Spielberg, Mary Steenburgen, Tim Robbins, Charlize Theron, Christoph Waltz and Forest Whitaker.


As for the performances, all five nominees for “Best Original Song” will perform at the Oscars®. They are:

    • Ryan Gosling, Mark Ronson, and Andrew Wyatt – “I’m Just Ken” from Barbie.
    • Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell performing Barbie’s “What Was I Made For?”
    • Becky G – “The Fire Inside” from Flamin’ Hot.
    • Jon Batiste – “It Never Went Away” from American Symphony.
    • Scott George performing Killers of the Flower Moon’s “Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)” with the Osage Singers.


Who are the Favorites to Win?

Oppenheimer led all nominees with 13 nods, and most experts believe it’s a lock to not only win Best Picture, but Best Director for Christopher Nolan, and other technical awards like Best Cinematography and Best Editing. In the acting categories, Robert Downey Jr. and Da’Vine Joy Randolph are basically sure-things to win Supporting Actor awards for Oppenheimer and The Holdovers, respectively. Cillian Murphy is favored in Best Actor, with Paul Giamatti (The Holdovers) and Jeffrey Wright (American Fiction) possible spoilers. And in Best Actress, it looks like a coin toss between Lily Gladstone for Killers of the Flower Moon and Emma Stone for Poor Things
