Where to Watch Every 2018 Oscar Nominee

by | February 22, 2018 | Comments

We know that not every film nominated for an Academy Award opened in as many theaters as a Dunkirk, a Get Out, or a Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which means there are probably a lot of nominees you haven’t yet had the chance to see. With that in mind, since the Oscars will be upon us in a little over a week, we thought it might be nice to look at every single movie nominated for any award and tell you where you can watch them all to catch up before the big night. See below for the full list of 44 movies and the various ways in which you can enjoy them, ordered by number of nominations from most to fewest.
