Bookmakers predicted which movie will win the coveted golden statuette at the Oscars 2024

The competition for the Oscars 2024 is in full swing, as the list of films hoping to compete for the Best Picture title is growing. Hollywood's biggest awards ceremony has changed significantly in recent years, with nominees becoming more diverse in genre and style than ever before.

Some of the most popular films, such as Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer and Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon, were among the expected Best Picture nominees before the premiere, and this has not changed after their release. As Screen Rant writes, the awards season is still in its relative infancy, and the final decision is bound to be influenced by movie races, campaigns, and sneaky tactics.

Let's take a closer look at the top 5 potential leaders of the nomination.

Although the film has always been considered an Oscar contender, the likelihood of it winning increased with its debut at the Venice International Film Festival, where it was nominated for the top prize, the Golden Lion.

The Maestro hopes to add a golden statuette to his resume in March 2024.

4th place - Barbie

Directed by: Greta Gerwig

Her previous two films, Little Women and Lady Bird, received Best Picture nominations in previous years. Barbie's lasting impact on Hollywood and expected contender status in many other categories make it a frontrunner in the category as well.

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone have once again joined forces to create one of the most likely contenders for the 2024 Oscars. "Poor Things" has already been praised for its creativity and uniqueness since its premiere in Venice, where it won the prestigious Golden Lion award.

The result not only made Emma Stone the frontrunner for Best Actress at the upcoming awards ceremony, but also significantly increased her chances of winning the Best Picture category.

"Poor Things" will be released in Ukraine this December. The film is based on the story of Frankenstein: a scientist tries to create the perfect wife. He finds the body of a drowned woman and brings her back to life by inserting a child's brain.

2nd place - "Killers of the Flower Moon"

Director: Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese is one of the strongest contenders for the 2024 Oscars with his film Killers of the Flower Moon. Its premiere in Cannes caused a lot of feedback: the film was called a masterpiece.

The history of Martin Scorsese's Oscar nominations is important because he has had nine films nominated in the most prestigious category, but has never won.

1st place - Oppenheimer

Director: Christopher Nolan

Oppenheimer's victory in the Best Picture category at the Oscars looks most likely at this point.

Christopher Nolan's biopic about Robert Oppenheimer may be his best film to date. Similar to Scorsese, Nolan's film has never won: his work has been nominated only twice.

Oppenheimer is guaranteed to be at least on the list of nominees announced in January 2024. The arguments for the award are related to the general recognition and success of the film, as well as the main actors - Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr.

The Oscar ceremony will traditionally take place in Los Angeles on March 10 next year. Nominations and contenders will be announced at the end of January 2024.

This time, Ukraine will be represented at the Oscars 2024 by the documentary 20 Days in Mariupol. Read more about the film and its creators in our article.
