Where to Watch Oscar Nominated Films Before This Sunday’s Ceremony
If you feel you need to catch up on all the films that are nominated for this Sunday night’s 95th annual Academy Awards before the ceremony, then here is where you can stream many of the movies that are up for Oscars.
HBO Max has the very strange story and film about two friends’ relationship that takes a weird turn in The Banshees of Inisherin. My wife and I watched this and it caused us to react in several ways. “Why is this happening, Oh wow, and that was awesome” are just a few of the reactions we had during the viewing. It’s sad, funny, and odd. It has nine nominations and Colin Farrell gives an Oscar-worthy performance. However, he’s got some stiff competition including Austin Butler in Elvis, which is also streaming on HBO Max. It’s a very cool biographical musical that tells the story of the King of rock and roll. I watched this one twice. I wasn’t blown away the first time, then I really enjoyed it the second time around. It’s nominated for eight Oscars.
The best actress front-runners are Cate Blanchett in TÁR, streaming on Peacock, and Michelle Yeoh in Everything Everywhere All at Once, available on Showtime Anytime. I don’t have any money, but if I did it would be on Michelle.
On Netflix, you can see the new adaptation of the classic war story All Quiet on the Western Front, and on Hulu, power dynamics are turned upside down in the dramedy Triangle of Sadness.
If you somehow didn’t see the year’s highest-grossing film yet, you can find Mr. Cruise and Top Gun: Maverick on Paramount+.
If that’s not enough, all of the best-animated feature film nominees are also available to watch at home.
You’ll find Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio and The Sea Beast on Netflix, and Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, on Showtime. Pixar’s Turning Red is available on Disney+, and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish will be on Peacock starting Friday.
The 95th annual Academy Awards airs this Sunday, March 12, on ABC with host Jimmy Kimmel.
