Where to Watch the 2016 Oscar Nominees

by | February 16, 2016 | Comments

As the Oscars quickly approach, we know that many of you are looking to play a little bit of catch-up, not just with the Best Picture nominees, but with a lot of the other notable films that are up for awards in other categories. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of the various places — whether in the theater, on DVD and Blu-ray, or on streaming video — where you can catch this year’s potential honorees before the big celebration on February 28th. Unfortunately, a handful of them are currently stuck in that limbo period between the end of their theater run and the beginning of their home video distribution, so they aren’t available to watch at the moment. Aside from those, however, here’s where you can watch all 42 feature films nominated for an Oscar this year:
