2024 Oscar contenders release dates: When can YOU see them?

2024 Oscar contenders release dates: When can YOU see them?

The nominations for the 2024 Oscars won’t be unveiled until Tuesday, January 23, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting a jump start on awards season. According to Gold Derby’s Best Picture odds, which are derived from the combined predictions made by our Experts, Editors and Users, we already have a good idea of what films might be feted by the Academy Awards. Pay special attention to the Oscars Best Picture rankings generated by our Experts from major media outlets, because many of them have already seen some of these movies at festivals or private industry screenings. But when will the movies debut in public theaters or stream on demand? Read on for all of the 2024 Oscar contenders release dates.

As a reminder, there will be a total of 10 Best Picture nominees this year, as there is no longer a sliding scale of anywhere from 5 to 10 films being recognized. The nominations are voted on by about 10,500 industry professionals of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The 2024 contenders below are listed in order of Gold Derby’s updated racetrack odds.

Does a movie have a better or worse chance of winning Best Picture depending on when it’s released during the calendar year? Not necessarily. Last year’s eventual Oscar champ, “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” arrived at the box office in the early month of March. The year prior, “CODA” was released simultaneously in theaters and on Apple TV+ in August.
