Every year, when awards season rolls around, I tell myself that I’ll sit down to watch the heavy-hitting noms. I don’t like to be out of the loop and watching at least a couple of the nominated movies makes me feel like I’m very much nuzzled inside the loop.
Sadly, it’s also a fact that not all of the movies will appeal to my specific tastes. With 24 categories, it’s only natural that I’ll love some and have some fly over my head without making an impact.
This year, my strategy is looking a little different. Instead of sitting through every single nominated flick, I plan to take a look through the many years gone by and only watching the ones that speak to me. For you, I’ve compiled a list of Oscar-winners through the ages. You’re welcome.
The Shape of Water
The Last King of Scotland
The Life of Pi
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Ford vs Ferrari
If these movies have got you jotting down your shopping list of snacks for a weekend on the couch, head over the Disney+ where every last one of them is streaming now.
