The Oscars have been a staple in popular culture for decades. Since the first Oscars back in 1929, it has become a tradition for many to watch the Oscar Ceremony and see all the movies of the previous year be celebrated and awarded for the work that has been accomplished by the directors, actors and crew. Though there are many important award categories in this ceremony, the Best Picture award is arguably the most anticipated award of the ceremony as it determines what the Academy voters felt was the ‘movie of the year.’ 


The 2024 Oscar Nominations were just released and this year’s ceremony has a total of ten Best Picture nominees. 


It’s important to note, I have a great affinity for watching movies. Whether it is being in a movie theater or being in the comfort of my own home, I love to watch films and analyze the deeper messages that sprinkled throughout a film’s screenplay. The films that were nominated this year were filled with great talent in front and behind the camera. As an avid movie fan, I decided to watch all the best picture nominated films and rank them from what I feel is the weakest nominee to what I feel is the strongest nominee and will most likely win the Best Picture award at this year’s ceremony. 

This year’s best picture nominations are the following:

American Fiction

Anatomy of a Fall


The Holdovers

Killers of the Flower Moon  



Past Lives 

Poor Things

The Zone of Interest 

Without further ado, this is my honest ranking of the Best Picture nominations for the 96th Academy Awards.
