In the 2024 Oscar Draft, we draft the movies of 2023 to see who can get the most Oscar nominations!

We have seen the movies of 2023. Now, it is time to make our picks for which we think will get the most Oscar nominations. Not wins here, people: nominations. A blockbuster movie like Barbie or Oppenheimer is liable to get upwards of ten noms. That's the kind of movie you want to pick in a draft like this. Each panelist will have four rounds to pick their Oscar nomination squad, but here's the thing, the other panelists are going to be making picks too. (Personally I hate this part, but they assure me it's important.)

You want to hit the big money with a movie that gets high single-digit or even double-digit nominations, but you also want rounds three and four to bring you in a couple of nom dogs at least. It's these late rounds where it is usually won—by the likes of Ryan—or lost—by the likes of everyone else (mostly Greg), except for Books.

We used to do this for fun. Then, it was for the movies. Eventually, we did it for ourselves.

But now? Now, we do it to destroy one another.

Abortion is healthcare

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what's best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn't be determined by location, and it shouldn't be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
