The 2016 Academy Awards are just around the corner, which means these are the last few hours to squeeze in some last minute viewings before the big show. After all, it’s a whole lot more fun to get invested, and subsequently outraged over the “snubs”, when you’ve actually seen the films in question. Fortunately, a ton of the 2016 Oscar nominees are conveniently available to stream online, Hell, you can watch seven out of the eight best picture nominees from the comfort of your living room right now.
For those of you looking to play a little last-minute catch-up before the ceremony, I’ve put together a handy-dandy list. Some are only available for purchase, some you can rent, and some are already on Netflix and Amazon Prime, but all of them are available to stream online. If you’re in a hurry or feeling budget conscious, check out the little snapshot below of all titles organized by availability, or if you’re looking for a little more detail check out the full list below, including what the films are nominated for and where you can find them. And before you fill out those ballots, make sure to check out Adam’s Oscar predictions or click here for all our Oscar coverage.
