Every awards season movie aficionados are faced with the challenge of finding out where and how they can watch the Oscar-nominated films they have not yet seen. With 52 films receiving nominations, this year is no exception to the difficult task. No worries, here at Nerd It Here First we have you covered, and we mean really covered. Unlike most sites that attempt to provide this information but only provide you with a “best of” selection, we are giving you information on every film nominated for an award (with the exception of the select few we cannot find viewing options for).

In this version of this article, the availability will be listed by film. If you would like to see them listed by the services the films are available on, follow this link to the sister article. Films will be organized by award category, however, each film’s watch locations will only be listed with details once. If a certain type of watching venue is not available it will not be listed under that film.

All films have been listed above, so happy viewing. To watch all 52 films before the Academy Awards you will need to watch over 2 films a day and spend over $100 in the remaining month. Do you have what it takes? I don’t I will be simply settling the Films of the “big awards” such as Best Picture (including animated and documentary), Best Acting, and any other films I can easily get access to, but renting will be kept at a minimum. After all, a man’s gotta eat.
