How to watch (nearly) all of the 2020 Oscar-nominated movies

Only $5 for 5 months
Oscars

How can you watch all the Oscar-nominated films in 2020? We'll tell you.

Good news: The Oscar nominations are out. Bad news: You have less time than ever to catch up on them before the awards show.

In a move to combat flagging ratings (see also: not having a host), the film academy moved up this year’s awards show to Feb. 9 — the earliest it’s ever been. So, if you’re reading this story on the day it published, you only have 25 days left to watch every Oscar-nominated film before the ceremony. And there are 38 of them (not counting shorts), so that’s a smidge over 1.5 movies a day if you want to watch everything. Anxiety starting to set in yet?

Fortunately, it’s easier than ever to watch all the Oscar-nominated films, usually without even leaving your home. Nearly every nominated movie is available to stream or rent digitally or still in theaters, and major theater chains typically run weekendlong marathons featuring all the best picture nominees (though movies produced by Netflix are typically omitted from these marathons).

So, to help ease your anxiety, we’ve put together a handy guide on how to watch every Oscar-nominated film. (Well, nearly all of them. A few either haven’t reached Omaha yet, or have left theaters but not yet made it to streaming services or DVD.)

Dates are subject to change.
