Oscar contenders release dates: When can YOU see them?

The nominations for the 2023 Oscars won’t be unveiled until Tuesday, January 24, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting a head start on awards season. According to Gold Derby’s early Oscar Best Picture odds, which are derived from the combined predictions made by our Experts, Editors and Users, we already have a good idea of what films might be feted by the Academy Awards. Pay special attention to the Oscars Best Picture predictions generated by our Experts because many of them have already seen some of these movies at festivals or else at private industry screenings held on both boasts. But when will the movies debut in public theaters or stream on demand? Read on for all of the 2023 Best Picture Oscar contenders release dates.

As a reminder, there will be a total of 10 Best Picture nominees this year, as there is no longer a sliding scale of anywhere from 5 to 10 films being recognized. The nominations are voted on by about 9,500 industry professionals of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The 2023 contenders below are listed in order of Gold Derby’s racetrack odds.

Does a movie have a better or worse chance of winning Best Picture depending on when it’s released during awards season? Not necessarily. Last year’s eventual Oscar champ, “CODA,” was released in theaters and on Apple TV+ on August 13, 2021. The year prior, “Nomadland” had a one-week limited theatrical release beginning on December 4, 2020. See the complete list of Best Picture Oscar winners.
