While the release of 2024 new movies is underway, the Oscars still have to hand out their awards to honor the best movies and performances of 2023 at the 2024 Oscars (we know it's confusing, but Oscars are always identified by the year they're presented even though they are awarding movies from the previous year). 

The 2023 Oscars, which honored movies from 2022, saw Everything Everywhere All at Once go home as the latest Best Picture winner, as well as winning trophies for Director, Original Screenplay, Actress (Michelle Yeoh), Supporting Actor (Ke Hey Quan) and Supporting Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis). What are the movies that are going to try and follow in its footsteps?

Find out about that and other key info for the 2024 Oscars, including who the winners are right here.
