If there’s one good thing to come out of a year of quarantine, it’s the way Hollywood has been forced to rethink its distribution models. With so many theaters closed due to pandemic restrictions, and audiences keeping their distance to stay safe, studios have turned to streaming services to give their films the best chance to be seen by a wide audience. Thanks to this strategy, catching an Academy Award-nominated film has never been easier for those more likely to watch movies from their couch than a movie-theater seat. If you’re among that group and want to prepare yourself for the ceremony on Sunday, April 25, here’s a straight shot to where you’ll find most of the top contenders on your TV, listed by streaming service.
