How to Watch This Year’s Oscar-Nominated Films

The 88th annual Academy Awards are just around the corner. If you’re a movie buff like me, then the Oscars are probably your own version of the Super Bowl. Every Academy Awards party needs a few essentials: themed snacks, frosty beverages, and an Oscars pool of course. But the most important question is: has everyone seen this year’s nominated films yet? Keeping up with all the nominees can be an exhausting task. It’s hard work getting out to a movie theater to see every single film! That’s why we here at Nerdist have made you this handy list of where to catch all of this year’s Oscar nominated films. Good luck, and happy movie watching!
