New Delhi: The organisers have confirmed that the 96th Academy Awards would be held on March 10, 2024.
Late Monday night, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) revealed the date in a statement on its official website.

In late March, the Board of Governors of the Academy announced the creation of the Production and Technology Branch, comprising approximately 400 individuals previously classified as Members-at-Large. The new branch represents members working in key technical and production positions in all phases of filmmaking, from pre- to post-production.

The 95th Academy Awards will also be remembered for recognising Asian talent with “Everything Everywhere All at Once” bagging seven awards, including Best Film, Best Director for Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, Best Actress for Malaysia’s Michelle Yeoh and Best Supporting Actor for Vietnamese American Ke Huy Quan.
