Oscars 2024 Best Picture Favourites: Here are the 11 films tipped to take the top Academy Award

The race for Oscar success is gaining momentum and a few films are starting to look like awards season favourites.

A number of series contenders for Academy Awards are being released in the coming weeks, with Martin Scorsese's 'Killers of the Flower Moon', Yorgos Lanthimos' 'Poor Things', Emerald Fennell's 'Saltburn' and Alexander Payne's 'The Holdovers' all hitting the big screen.

It means that the annual debate about who is most worthy of Oscar recognition is set to intensify -particularly in a year where 'Barbie' and 'Oppenheimer' enjoyed near-unprecedented summer success at the box office.

The nominations for the 2024 Oscars will be announced on January 23, with voting being carried out from February 22-27.

The awards ceremony will then take place on Sunday, March 10. Here's who the bookies think will be celebrating.
