We've also handpicked portable movie projectors, popcorn makers, plushy throw blankets, a must-have wine delivery service and more so you can get your watch on. Our favorite? A Rent The Runway subscription so you can dress like your favorite A-listers from YOUR runway: the living room. 

Check out our guide below.

Amazon Prime Video

If you already have an Amazon membership, then catching up on all the golden award-nominated films will be easy! Prices ranging between $6-$14, you can watch The Lighthouse, Toy Story 4 and more from the convenience of your home.


If you haven't been able to catch 1971 or Little Women, with Fandango, you're a guaranteed ticket away from the perfect movie night out. 


Haven't caught Once Upon A Time In Hollywood? That's OK. With Vudu, it's free to sign up and with rentals ranging between $6-$14, grab your closest film aficionados and start checking off your list!


Although Booksmart was snubbed, you can still stream it on everybody's most trust-worthy streaming service: Hulu! At $9/month, you can also take a walk down nostalgia in their Oscar-Nominated Films From The Past section. 


Although there aren't any Oscar hopefuls available for streaming on the star-studded network, you can stream previous Oscar-nominated pictures with the click of your remote.

Alamo Drafthouse

If you live in Texas, California, Colorado, Minnesota, Virginia or other participating cities, upgrade your moviegoing experience with a film and full-service wait staff to bring you fried pickles, bottomless popcorn and more! 


Although Us was overlooked for award season, you can still watch Lupita Nyong'o's spellbinding performance, as well as some of the greatest TV shows of the year! 


If you haven't gotten the opportunity to watch The Irishman or Marriage Story, both of the Oscar hopefuls are available on the lifestyle streaming service Netflix. Your first 30 days are free, and only $9/month after!


For those that haven't gotten around to seeing Harriet or Pain and Glory, with prices ranging from $6-$14, you can catch them straight from your smartphone device!

Google Play

Catch up on all the latest released films straight from your tablet! With prices ranging from $6-$14, you can cram in a few!
