Best Picture Showcase and Film Festival

Since 1929, The Oscars have recognized excellence in cinematic achievements. This year's 96th Academy Awards will be broadcast on TV and the ceremony streamed live on Sunday, March 10, 2024, to honor movies released in 2023. 

And no, there is no film called “Barbenheimer.” That was merely a media meme to capture the spectrum of two blockbuster films that created a cultural phenomenon. But in case, you didn't catch any of these flicks the first time around, there's a good chance you can still watch them at local movie theaters on the big screen.
