Oscar: The other year of the epidemic did not stop Hollywood from the beauty and brilliance of bringing good films. Here’s how to distribute Oscar nominees this year from the safety of your home.
2021 was not 2020, but it was not normal, either. This was especially true of movie lovers. Thanks to the life-saving COVID-19 vaccine, many of us return to the movies for the first time in over a year to watch the biggest blockbusters.
However, COVID-19 is still a major threat, and new alternatives make full-fledged theaters a risk that many do not want to take. Happily, it’s easier than ever to watch everything from arthouse flicks to studio tents online. Some companies may not want me to be able to watch Matrix Resurrection at home on the first day with the HBO Max, but I appreciate the flexibility.
Another movie year means another Academy Award. The Oscars return on Sunday, March 27 to ABC to celebrate the silver screen with its huge stars. We recently learned which films were nominated for the 94th annual event, and the films also supported by live streaming services continue to be highly regarded in the Hollywood community that once hated them. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has accepted that Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and others are making original, Oscar-caliber films. Luckily for broadcast fans, that means nothing stops you from watching these competitors at home before the big event.
Here’s how to watch a 2021 Oscar-nominated movie online. A few featured films are not available for digital viewing at the moment, but that should change in the future. Want to know how to watch the big show itself? Here is our guide on how to distribute Oscars.
Director Kenneth Branagh has his own amazing soul in this story of the coming years set during The Troubles in North Ireland. Belfast is available for purchase online through Amazon or similar services. It is coming soon to Phigogo.
CODA (Apple TV +)
CODA discusses the story of one hearing member in a deaf family (Child of a Deaf Adult), and the unique challenges he or she faces. Apple is committed to making the Apple TV + home of high-quality films, and that is where you can stream this play.
Do Not Look Up (Netflix)
Adam McKay and his famous friends present a vague metaphor for a coming cataclysmic catastrophe that may be the worst “joke” ever made. Before the world ends, see Do Not Look At Netflix.
Drive My Car (HBO Max)
It receives inspiration from several of Haruki Murakami’s short stories, Drive My Car follows the theater’s personal problem as he tries to direct the Chekhov drama. Many overseas films have finally found their way to American broadcasting services, and Drive My Car is now available on HBO Max.
Dune (HBO Max)
Denis Villeneuve finally gives these big sand worms the love they deserve for this luxurious familiarity of Frank Herbert’s fourth sci-fi novel — or, at least the first part of it. Like the Warner Bros. movies, Dune first appeared for a limited time on the HBO Max, and is now permanently back in service.
King Richard (HBO Max)
Will Smith transforms himself into Richard Williams, the father who will train daughters Venus and Serena in the tennis kingdom. Like Dune, King Richard first played HBO Max for a while, and returned on March 24, at just the right time for the Oscars.
