The 96th Academy Awards will be hosted for the fourth time by Jimmy Kimmel on March 10.

Grab some popcorn, because it's almost time for the 2024 Oscars.

Hollywood's biggest night will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on March 10, and will see some of the biggest films of the last year — including Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, Yorgos Lanthimos' Poor Things, Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon, and Greta Gerwig's Barbie — all go head-to-head to (hopefully) take home some seriously shiny hardware.

As for who will win big? Well, that's decided upon by the more than 10,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences over the course of a four-month-long voting process. Final voting for this year's ceremony was held from Feb. 22 until Feb. 27.

EW has you covered for everything you need to know ahead of the Oscars, including who's nominated, who's performing, and how you can tune in. Learn more below.

Who is hosting the 2024 Oscars?

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the Oscars for the fourth time after previously helming the ceremony in 2017, 2018. and again in 2023. He ties Whoopi Goldberg and the late Jack Lemmon, who have similarly anchored the show four times. In a press statement, Kimmel quipped, "I always dreamed of hosting the Oscars exactly four times."

Who is nominated at the 2024 Oscars?

Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer received the most nominations with 13 overall nods, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Cillian Murphy), Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr.), and Best Supporting Actress (Emily Blunt). It's followed closely behind by Yorgos LanthimosPoor Things, which received 11 nominations, and Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon, which earned 10. Meanwhile, Greta Gerwig's Barbie garnered eight nominations — even though its director and lead actress were both shockingly shut out from their respective categories.

Brown and Danielle Brooks earning their first-ever career nominations for their work in American Fiction and The Color Purple, respectively.
