Where to Stream (Most of) the Major 2022 Oscars Contenders

The 2022 Oscar nominations are out and unless you’re a critic who sees every single film when it’s released, it’s likely there are a few you might have missed. Hollywood’s continuing shift toward streaming services as platforms for their prestige titles has been great for those who prefer to consume their entertainment from the safety of their couch. Like last year, there are quite a few nominees you can stream right now with a premium subscription to one or more services. More are available on demand for a fee, and, of course, some are still showing in theaters if you’re willing to venture out of the house. Here’s where you can catch up on the major contenders (with two or more nominations), listed by streaming service.

If you want to talk more about the nominations and the awards with our experts, be sure to check out our virtual event happening tomorrow night!
