2024 Oscars are gearing up, with a whopping 321 films in the running. Among them, 265 features are eligible for consideration in the Best Picture category, according to a recent announcement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. They just dropped their annual “reminder list” for members, giving us a glimpse into the cinematic contenders.

For a film to qualify in the general categories (meaning a runtime of over 40 minutes), it must hit the big screen in at least one of the following areas: Los Angeles County; the city of New York; the Bay Area; Chicago, Illinois; Miami, Florida; and Atlanta, Georgia. This needs to happen between January 1, 2023, and December 31, 2023, along with completing a minimum qualifying run of seven consecutive days in the same venue.

How to Get a Shot at the Best Picture Category at the Oscars?

Now, for a shot at the Best Picture category, movies need to meet the general entry requirements and have submitted a confidential Academy Representation and Inclusion Standards entry form. Additionally, the film must satisfy two out of the four standards required, on top of the theatrical component.

The countdown to the Oscars has officially started with nomination voting kicking off on January 11 and wrapping up on January 16. Get ready for the big reveal on January 23 when the nominations will be announced. The 96th Oscars are set to take place on March 10 at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood, airing live on ABC.

And for all you film buffs out there, here’s a sneak peek at the list of films eligible for the Best Picture category. Academy members will have the tough task of selecting five to ten nominees from this impressive lineup.
