All About Oscars 2024

The year 2023 was one of the most fulfilling years for cinema, not just in one particular industry but for the world as a whole. Especially for Hollywood, it felt like the industry travelled back in time as multiple maverick filmmakers released films scattered throughout the year. There was also a massive box office clash between Christopher Nolan (Oppenheimer) and Greta Gerwig (Barbie), and that benefited the box office in more than one way.

Now, as we are in 2024, having witnessed multiple big award nights already, we are gearing up for the biggest of them all: the Oscars, aka The Academy Awards 2024. As we are inching closer to D-day, here's a one-stop guide to the event, especially for the Indians who are planning an early morning binge on the coming Monday.


The Oscars 2024 have a massive pull because two massive films, including Oppenheimer and Barbie, ruled the mainstream news last year, and they are in the Oscar race too. Alongside them are massive movies that starred ace talent like Emma Stone and also had directorial input from the maverick Martin Scorsese. So you know what the Oscars this year mean and will look like with so many legendary people walking that prestigious carpet. So below are all the details.

When And Where To Watch Oscars 2024?

The Academy Awards 2024 are scheduled to happen on March 10, 2024. The award night will begin at 7 p.m. ET and 4 p.m. PT. In India, the Oscars 2024 will air on March 11 at 4 p.m. IST. The gala night will have a telecast on ABC for the west, and in India, it will stream live on Disney+ Hotstar. Which means the viewers will have to wake up too early on Monday in India, like always.

Where Is Oscars 2024 Happening?

Since 2002, the yearly gala has been happening in the Dolby Theatre (formerly called the Kodak Theatre), situated in the bustling part of Hollywood Boulevard. After being inaugurated in November of 2001, the venue became a permanent home for the Academy Awards, and the venue has seen so many legendary and talented people walk home with their golden trophies.

The venue is an indoor theatre that can fit up to 3,400 people. Every year, the red carpet witnesses some of the most anticipated celebrities, and a lot of surprising faces walk. Divided into two parts, one for the media and the other for the Academy, the carpet itself is a parallel event that happens right before the main night.

What To Expect From The Red Carpet?

The year 2023 has been about promotional tours, campy looks, and a whole lot of fashion drama. The highlight of the event will be Team Barbie, who has been acing the red carpet for almost a year now. Margot Robbie has had some of the most iconic red carpet moments throughout her Barbie promotions. Now, as she graces the biggest of them all with the same movie, there is, of course, something unconventional we are about to witness.

Having said that, there are also a lot of people who will be bringing their A-game to the carpet. The designers will have to bring their best outfits out there, and the actors will have to represent them with all the chic glamour they can.

Let’s meet on the day of the Oscars and witness all of this. For more coverage of the gala night and everything else from the world of streaming and films, stay tuned to OTTplay.
