The 2024 Oscar nominees have been announced and, with some of the most talked about films in recent cinematic history being featured, you're going to want to make sure you don’t miss a single one. Whether you're looking for a moody historical drama, a feminist fantasy, or a musical masterpiece – this list has something for everyone.

With the biggest night in Hollywood fast approaching on 10 March, it’s time to do your movie research, as the announcement of this year’s nominees gives us lots to look forward to. For instance, you will see Ryan Gosling in all his Ken glory performing the now Oscar-nominated song, “I’m Just Ken” for millions around the world.

Oppenheimer leads the pack with an atomic 13 nominations this year, and Jimmy Kimmel is set to reprise his role as host for the fourth time. This night also features many firsts for the ceremony, as Martin Scorses has now earned more Oscar nominations for best director than anyone before, with Killers of the Flower Moon bumping him up to an even 10. Women are also breaking records this year, as three of the best picture nominees were directed by women, the most recognised in the 96 years of the annual ceremony.

Settle in and grab the popcorn as we tell you how you can watch all the 2024 Best Picture nominees.
