2024 Oscar Predictions: See Who Will Get Best Picture — U.S. Study Results

Hollywood’s biggest ceremony is changing, with a more diverse voting pool. The 2024 Oscar race has strong contenders in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’, Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’, and Greta Gerwig’s ’Barbie’. But which film will win? Let’s check what Internet users think.

Reputation House, an international reputation management agency, recently studied public sentiment from January 1 to February 20, 2024, predicting the likely winner of the 2024 Oscar for Best Picture. They looked at social media platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter to gather opinions from across the United States. The survey covered ten notable Best Picture nominees for 2024, including Oppenheimer, Barbie, Anatomy of a Fall, American Fiction, Killers of the Flower Moon, Maestro, Poor Things, Zone of Interest, Past Lives, and The Holdovers.

Films With Multiple Nominations 

  • Oppenheimer — 13 
  • Poor Things — 11
  • Killers of the Flower Moon — 10
  • Barbie — 8
  • Maestro — 7
  • American Fiction — 5
  • Anatomy of a Fall — 5
  • The Holdovers — 5
  • The Zone of Interest — 5

What Bookmakers Say? 

According to bookmakers, there’s a unanimous view that Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’ stands as the top favorite in this category. The three-hour biopic, starring Cillian Murphy as the atomic bomb creator, has garnered the highest odds for a potential win. Following closely, the second spot is a tie between Yorgos Lanthimos’ comedy ‘Poor Things’ and the Christmas comedy drama ‘The Holdovers’.

Interestingly, in certain betting offices, Lanthimos’ fantasy film, featuring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, and Willem Defoe, has higher odds, possibly influenced by its recognition at the Golden Lion Venice Film Festival in September 2023. Surprisingly, the most profitable movie of 2023, ‘Barbie’, secures the fourth position according to bookmakers. Justine Trieu’s crime drama ‘Anatomy of a Fall’, which clinched the Palme d’Or at Cannes, also makes a strong appearance in the top 5.

What Internet Users Think? 

According to Reputation House’s data, Barbie is poised to win the Best Picture Oscar this year. Despite the negative reception towards the film, it continues to be the most talked-about as for now.
