Here's how we can stream Oscar-nominated films NOW
Listen, we get it. It’s hard to get to the movies. All of a sudden, it’s Oscar season and you realize that you’ve only seen one Oscar-nominated film. Oh wait, Holes isn’t nominated and actually came out in 2003? Scratch that. You haven’t seen any. You’re going to feel like a mess at your friend’s Oscar Awards party on Sunday! But what if we told you that you could stream Oscar-nominated films right now on your computer? Buckle up. You’ve got movies to watch.
Bless up, USA Today. Bless UP!
Of course streaming these films comes with a catch because we should all know by now that nothing in life is free! They are available through online streaming subscription sites like our beloved Netflix, Amazon, Google Play, etc.
For those of us who are in a long-term committed relationship with Netflix, you can check out The Jungle Book — nominated for visual effects, 13th — nominated for best documentary feature, and Zootopia — nominated for best animated feature.
But if you’re friendlier with Amazon or Google Play, you’ll have a lot more Oscar-nom exposure. You can find the following on Amazon and/or Google Play:
Captain Fantastic — nominated for best actor, Viggo Mortensen
Deepwater Horizon — nominated for sound editing and visual effects
Florence Foster Jenkins — nominated for best actress, Meryl Streep, and costume design
Hail, Caesar! — nominated for production design
Hell or High Water — nominated for best picture, best supporting actor, Jeff Bridges, editing, and best original screenplay
Kubo and the Two Strings — nominated for best animated feature and visual effects

So get the heck on your computer! You only have a few days left to binge the best movies of the year in order to provide your opinion over champagne, chips, and dip! This is your year to be the one with the most Oscar knowledge, so seize this opportunity.
Sorry to burst your bubble about Holes, btw.
