2018 Academy Award Nominees: Where to Watch Them Online

The Big SickThe Oscar nominations were announced today, and while other sites may ramble on about the surprises, you might be surprised by how many are already available to stream online. In part that’s because streaming services like Netflix (and, if to a much lesser extent, Amazon Prime) were so successful landing nominations for their original productions. Some titles are at this time only available as sales or rentals on VUDU, but I’ve included them for the sake of any Oscar completists out there.
