If movies are always shot at 24 fps and before broadcasting (or storing on disk) the content is converted to 30 fps then what's the point of buying a 120 hz TV? Whats the big deal about 120hz being multiple of 24 since all the broadcasts are done at 30 fps (or 60i)?

Are there any broadcasts, or sources of media (blue ray etc) that deliver to the TV content at 24 fps? Only in that case i see an advantage.

Gaming. So you can run it at 120fps without screen tearing. Im not sure if it has any practical use in watching tv or movies.

So is it safe to assume that there all source's of movie/tv show/sports media (blu ray, etc) or tv station broadcasts deliver to the tv at 30 fps? Again i am not talking about shooting the content (i know that sports are shot at a higher frame rate than movies) but about broadcasting/storing the content.
