2017 Oscar Noms and Where to Watch Them


Each year I try to make my way through as many of the Oscar nominated films as possible. While most are easy to track down (all the nominees for Best Picture are still in theaters, for example) some of the smaller films can be a bit harder to find. Here’s a (nearly) complete list of where you can (legally) watch all of this year’s nominated films.

You can use websites like Just Watch to search across multiple platforms for a particular title.

Each of the Best Picture nominees are currently playing in theaters. “Hell or High Water” and “Lion” are also available to rent/purchase on multiple major streaming platforms.
