One of the best things the Oscars does is shine a light on movies that may not normally come to your attention. While blockbusters will always rake in the dough, Oscar-nominated movies are smaller, occasionally more difficult, and less prone to crowd-pleasing. When the nominees are announced, it’s a good way to catch up on certain films. However, for some, the field is still too wide, and they really only have time in their schedule for the winners. If that’s the case, let us help guide you to how you can watch these movies (legally!) right now.
The Shape of Water: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score, Best Production Desigm
If you want to go ahead and buy the movie on HD, it’s now available on iTunes for $14.99. However, if you’d prefer to go with a rental, it will be available to rent on March 13th. The film will also be available to buy on March 13th on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K.
Dunkirk: Best Editing, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing
Dunkirk has been available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K for a little while now, but it still has a rental price of $5.99. However, if you want to go ahead and just buy the digital copy, it will cost you $9.99. The film is also available on Redbox.
Darkest Hour: Best Actor, Best Makeup & Hairstyling
Darkest Hour is now on Blu-ray, which means you can rent it right now. If you feel like renting it on iTunes or another service like Vudu, it will cost you $5.99. However, the film is also available on Redbox if you want it for slightly cheaper.
Coco: Best Animated Feature, Best Original Song
Coco just hit Blu-ray, which means it’s now available to rent. You can get it on Google Play for $4.99 or you can get via Redbox.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor
Three Billboards hit Blu-ray last week, which means you can go ahead and rent it for $5.99 online. It’s not yet available on Redbox, but their website says it will be available starting tomorrow.
Blade Runner 2049: Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects
The movie that finally got Roger Deakins his long-deserved Oscar is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K. If you’d like to go ahead and rent it, that will cost you $5.99, or you can track it down at a Redbox.
Get Out: Best Original Screenplay
Since Get Out has been on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K for a while now, it’s a little less costly to just buy it for $11.69 on Amazon for the Blu-ray rather than spending $14.99 at the Google Play store (I don’t know how much it costs on iTunes since I already own it hooray for me). The film is also available on Redbox.
