Yes, Blu-ray is a key factor in this discussion. 1080p24 is the extent of 1080p for Blu-ray (US). Anything else will be converted 1080i (outside of 720p).

For the web it is a different story, but it is still a bit early for solid 1080p delivery imho. In my tests, shooting 1080i and exporting a 720p50 file compared to shooting 720p60 and outputting a 720p50 file resulted in a wash for computer viewing. (I use 720p50 to save 10 frames/sec on bandwidth).

So the choice is really about framerate first, then resolution. If you need 60p then your choice might be different than if you need 24p.
