Know Where To Watch All The Oscars Nominees

The Oscars are the Academy’s most important ceremony presented by the AMPAS (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science) that awards the year's best pictures, directors, actresses, actors, and more. In 2021, the 93rd edition of the ceremony will happen on April 25th (delayed two months due to COVID-19).

Even though there are several award shows which are respected - like the Golden Globes, Critics Choice, BAFTAs, and SAG Awards — The Academy Awards still is the most looked forward to, most-watched, and the major show of the award season according to the critics and the public.

Since movie theaters are an impossible reality to some of us for now, the internet got us covered. Here are some of the 2021 Oscars Nominees available online on streaming platforms that you can watch in the comfort and safety of your house!

  1. 1. Netflix

    Disney+ is the streaming service of The Walt Disney Company, where you can watch Disney Studios originals, like short films, documentaries, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD shows, Marvel Studios, LucasFilm and Pixar movies, and more.

    Their initial plan was to unite the content under Disney’s main entertainment studios and to create new content for the service too. The platform was released at the end of 2019, making Disney+ the newest service on the list that already has six Oscars nominations!

    Disney and Pixar are known for having their animation movies on the Oscars every year, and since their new productions are all on the streaming platform, you can watch them from your house. And the nominees are:

    - "Onward" (1 nomination)

    - "Soul" (2 nominations)

    - "Mulan" (2 nominations)

    - "The One and Only Ivan" (1 nomination)

  5. 5. Globoplay

    “The Mole Agent”, nominated in one category, is available on the Brazilian subscription video-on-demand service that belongs to Grupo Globo created in 2015. Although it is not a Globoplay Original, the service has the rights to stream the documentary. According to Variety, Globoplay will soon be available in countries like the U.S. with original content, Brazilian soap operas, and more.

    The film is about an investigator in Chile who hires someone to be a “spy'' at a retirement home where one of his clients suspects the workers of elder abuse. It's really worth the watch.

    If you think there are not enough online platforms, the multinational technology company specialized in online software and electronics, Apple, wanted their own streaming service too!

    It’s the first year of Apple TV+ in the Oscars and it already has two original films nominated, which is impressive! At Apple's streaming service, you can watch two movies that received a lot of compliments from the critics:

    - "Wolfwalkers" (1 nomination)
