The Night Where Anything Can Happen — How to Watch Oscars in Australia

How to watch the Oscars in Australia

It will be the night of nights, the ceremony of ceremonies, the award show of award shows. The Motion Picture Academy is on the precipice of announcing the 2024 Academy Awards. What’s more, many people across Australia want to know how they can watch the Oscars unfold.  

The Oscars are a collection of awards that are presented to both individuals in the film industry and movies that have been deemed to have notable artistic merits. They are also regarded as one of the most prestigious rewards that one can obtain in the entertainment industry. Whoever wins the Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress awards will join a pantheon of the best.

Unlike the Emmys, the 2024 Oscars ceremony wasn’t delayed by the most recent writers and actor strikes. This signifies that pay dispute issues taking place between the studios and these artists have been well and truly resolved. 

In 2024, the Oscar frontrunner is Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. This biopic about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the man who developed the atomic bomb during World War II, was a commercial success and a critical darling. This film has been nominated for eight Oscars, with Nolan being up for Best Director and Cillian Murphy being up for Best Actor due to his performance as Oppenheimer.

However, at the Oscars, anything can happen. Great movies have been snubbed, awards have been rejected, and La La Land was incorrectly declared the Best Picture of 2017. There’s a slim chance that Oppenheimer won’t win a single award.

If you want to watch this drama live, then we have got you sorted. Here’s how you can watch the 2024 Oscars in Australia.
