The speculation is over. The 96th Academy Awards ceremony has ended and Oppenheimer, the epic biopic directed by Christopher Nolan, was the biggest winner of the evening in receiving seven awards from 13 nominations. Behind it, Yorgos Lanthimos’ comedy Poor Things earned three Oscars, while most of the award-winning movies only received one trophy.

However, the list of winners is proof that last year was great for Hollywood and movies around the world. Now, audiences now have the chance to see the films that won on the big night, most of which are already available for streaming on platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Apple TV+ and more, and also to rent or buy on VOD. Some, like The Boy and the Heron, which won Best Animated Feature, and Anatomy of a Fall (Best Original Screenplay) are still unavailable.

Here’s where to enjoy them again, or see them for the first time:
