Where to Stream the 2017 Oscar Nominees

Movies Features Oscars
Pin

By the time the Oscar winners are announced on February 26th, the majority of the nominees will be available to stream on most major services (Netflix, iTunes, Hulu, Google Play, Amazon Prime and Vudu—sorry Crackle). But if you’re only catching the movies then, it’ll be too late to play along.

So we’ve tried to compile as thoroughly as we can every possible way you can both see and plan to see the Academy Award nominated films before the big night.

A few caveats: In many cases, films are available to own digitally before they’re available to rent, and so we’ve tried, based on the information accessible to us, to make that differentiation clear. These dates, and the platforms on which the films are hosted, are obviously subject to change.

Additionally, if a film is streamable on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, then we’ve only noted those options. We figure that you’ll want to know about the “free” streaming options first, and that in most cases, if they’re streaming on a major service, they’re probably also open to rent or buy pretty much everywhere else (unless, of course, you’re a Netflix Original—shout out to 13th).

It’s worth noting too that because we live in exciting times, a service like Amazon Prime is going to be winning Oscars, and so, though it has no set date, Amazon Studios films like Manchester by the Sea and Asghar Farhadi’s The Salesman will undoubtedly end up on Amazon Prime before the year’s out. (Also, because we live in dark times, Suicide Squad is included in our list.)

With all that prequalification out of the way, start catching up with our alphabetized list below, and check in often over the course of the next month as we update this page to reflect whatever news surfaces.
