The nominees for the 96th Academy Awards have been announced, surprising several journalists and movie fans. While films like Oppenheimer and Killers of the Flower Moon got several nominations as expected, there were several snubs in major categories: Greta Gerwig is not in the running for Best Director, Margot Robbie is not nominated for Barbie —however, both got nominated as producers of the film— and Society of the Snow didn’t manage to get to the main category despite being critically acclaimed.

But, despite the surprises and snubs, the list of nominees is proof that last year was great for Hollywood and movies in general, and audiences were the big winners by having the chance to see really good films, most of which are already available for streaming in platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Apple TV+, and more, and also for rent or buy on VOD.

Here’s where they can enjoy them again, or see them for the first time before the big awards:

Oppenheimer

13 nominations

The biopic about the father of the atomic bomb is the most nominated film of this year’s Oscars. Christopher Nolan got a nod for his work as a director, while Cillian Murphy is the big favorite of the main acting category for flawlessly playing a complicated individual who has been described by Nolan as the most important man who has ever lived.

Where to watch: Streaming on Peacock (from February 16, 2024). The film is also available to rent or buy on VOD.

Poor Things

11 nominations

Based on the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray, Poor Things follows a young woman who, after committing suicide, is resurrected by scientists. In this new life, she embarks on a trip of self-discovery. It was named one of the best films of 2023 by several publications, while Emma Stone’s performance was universally acclaimed and could result in her winning her second acting Oscar.

Where to watch: Will be available for streaming on Hulu, but a date hasn’t been announced. Also available to rent or buy on VOD.

Killers of the Flower Moon

10 nominations

Martin Scorsese became the most nominated director in the history of the Academy Awards for his work in this film based on the real life Osage murders. Lily Gladstone also made Oscars history by being the first Native American woman nominated for Best Actress, while Leonardo DiCaprio was snubbed despite giving one of the best performances in his career.

Where to watch: Streaming on Apple TV+. Also available on VOD.

Barbie

8 nominations

Greta Gerwig wasn’t nominated as Best Director for her work on Barbie, but she got a nomination alongside her writing partner Noah Baumbach. The movie follows the iconic doll as she faces existential questions about life and femininity. America Ferrera and Ryan Gosling were nominated for their performances, while Margot Robbie was also snubbed.

Where to watch: Streaming on Max. Also available on VOD.

Maestro

7 nominations

Maestro Bradley Cooper’s work about the influential composer and conductor, Leonard Bernstein — has become one of the biggest losers of the Awards season. Despite being critically acclaimed, which led to it being nominated for several awards, other films have gained more recognition.

Where to watch: Streaming on Netflix.

American Fiction

5 nominations

Based on the 2001 novel Erasure by Percival Everett, this dramedy follows a novelist who gains recognition after writing a stereotypical “Black” book, which leads to an interesting social analysis with great performances by Jeffrey Wright and Sterling K. Brown, both of whom got nominations.

Where to watch: Streaming on Max and Prime Video. Also available on VOD.

Anatomy of a Fall

5 nominations

Anatomy of a Fall won two Golden Globes and could win several Oscars. This legal drama thriller follows a woman who is trying to prove her innocence after his husband’s death. It is also nominated in the Best Film category.

Where to watch: Streaming on Apple TV+. Also available on VOD.

The Holdovers

5 nominations

Paul Giamatti could take the Best Actor Oscar home, beating Cillian Murphy. The actor has already won several awards for his role as an angry boarding school teacher who must take care of several students during the Christmas break in this heartfelt story.

Where to watch: Streaming on Peacock. Available on VOD.

The Zone of Interest

5 nominations

This historical drama directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jonathan Glazer follows Nazi commandant Rudolf Höss, who tries to live a good life with his wife while supervising the German Auschwitz concentration camp. It won the Grand Prix at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, and now it could win several Oscars.

Although Ridley Scott’s biopic on the historical emperor wasn’t as well received as other nominated films, it managed to get nods in the Design and Visual Effects categories.

Where to watch: Streaming on Apple TV+. Available on VOD.

The Creator

2 nominations

The Creator is one of the lesser known movies in this year’s categories. It was well received by critics upon its release, and although it has some good performances by John David Washington and Gemma Chan, it only got Oscar nods in the Visual Effects and Sound categories.

Where to watch: Streaming on Disney+ and Hulu. Also available on VOD.

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning

2 nominations

The seventh installment in Tom Cruise’s most successful franchise got rave reviews after its release but it was mostly ignored because of the attention Oppenheimer and Barbie got. It got nominated for Best Sound and Best Visual Effects.

Where to watch: Streaming on Paramount+.

Nyad

This biographical sports drama about Diana Nyad stars Annette Bening as the swimmer who attempts to swim the Straits of Florida, and Jodie Foster as her best friend and coach. Both actresses got nominations for their performances.
