 Where to Stream 2024’s Oscar-Nominated Movies Before the Ceremony


The 2024 Oscars are on Sunday, which could mean it’s crunch time if you want to watch more nominees before the ceremony. There are 10 flicks vying for best picture, and many are on popular streamers like Netflix and Paramount Plus. (If you went to back-to-back screenings of Oppenheimer and Barbie, that’s already two competing flicks you can tick off your list.)

Below, you’ll see films up for awards — including all the best picture contenders — and where you can find them in the US. Note that if a film isn’t currently on a streaming service you subscribe to, that could change. Anatomy of a Fall, for example, costs $6 to rent right now, but it hits Hulu on March 22. Get your pre-show binge underway, because the 96th Academy Awards air on ABC on March 10.
