It happens every year: Oscars night rolls around and we’ve seen one (two, if we’re lucky) of the nominated films. We proceed to annoyingly talk our way through the ceremony wondering if Emma Stone dies at the end or if Casey Affleck’s character was a good guy. This year will be different. That’s because we can stream the following 15 nominated films at home. Excuse us, we’ve got movies to watch.

Watch it on: iTunes, Amazon Video 
This historical drama tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, the plaintiffs in the 1967 Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia, which ruled state laws prohibiting interracial marriage unconstitutional. Powerful stuff.

“Hell or High Water”

Two brothers carry out a series of robberies to save their family ranch. Their plan seems foolproof until they make it onto the radar of a Texas ranger (Bridges) looking for one last win before he retires.

Based on Fredrik Backman’s 2012 novel, Ove follows a grumpy, recently widowed and suicidal older man who starts an unexpected friendship with a family that moves into his neighborhood.

“O.J.: Made in America”

Nominated for: Best Documentary Feature
Watch it on: Hulu
This five-part miniseries documents—you guessed it—the life and trial of O.J. Simpson. The topic might seem a bit overdone right now, but trust us when we say that this ESPN-produced doc is more than worth a watch.  

’The Lobster’

Nominated for: Best Original Screenplay
Watch it on: iTunes, Amazon Video
This super weird (but critically acclaimed) film follows a man (Colin Farrell) after his wife leaves him for another man. At that point, he's taken to a hotel, where it’s explained that he has 45 days to find a partner or else he’ll be turned into an animal. Yup.

“Hacksaw Ridge”

Nominated for: Best Picture, Best Actor (Andrew Garfield), Best Director (Mel Gibson), Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Film Editing
Watch it on: Amazon Video
This biographical war drama tells the story of Desmond Doss, a soldier during WWII who, due to his Seventh Day Adventist beliefs, refuses to carry a firearm or weapon in battle.

“Captain Fantastic”

Nominated for: Best Actor (Viggo Mortensen)
Watch it on: iTunes, Amazon Video
Mortensen stars as Ben Cash, a patriarch forced to move his family back into civilization after living off the grid in Washington state for a decade.

“13th”

Nominated for: Best Documentary Feature
Watch it on: Netflix
Director Ava Duvernay’s doc is an eye-opening look at the deep, hard-to-break ties between race and the criminal justice system in America. A hard watch for sure, but important nonetheless.

“Kubo and the Two Strings”

Nominated for: Best Animated Feature Film
Watch it on: iTunes, Amazon Video
Featuring the voices of Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes and more, Kubo is about a young boy with one eye and magical powers. The thematic material is much more mature than its animation suggests, and the score is unbelievably great.

“Florence Foster Jenkins”

Nominated for: Best Actress (Meryl Streep), Best Achievement in Costume Design
Watch it on: iTunes, Amazon Video
Based on a true story, Streep stars as the titular Florence, a New York socialite who became an opera singer despite her apparent lack of musical talent. Streep is unsurprisingly delightful.

“Zootopia”

Nominated for: Best Animated Feature Film
Watch it on: Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Video
A rabbit police officer and red fox con artist find themselves an unlikely pair as they work together to uncover a conspiracy that involves a string of disappearances. It also features the voices of everyone from Jason Bateman and Idris Elba to Octavia Spencer and Shakira (Shakira).

“The Jungle Book”

Nominated for: Best Achievement in Visual Effects
Watch it on: Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Video
Based on Rudyard Kipling’s 1894 stories, this fantasy-adventure-musical tells the live-action/CGI story of Mowgli, an orphaned human boy taken under the wings (sometimes literal) of a group of animals.

Watch it on: iTunes, Amazon Video
This touching coming of age story is about a young autistic boy, Owen Suskind, who learned how to communicate with the outside world through watching Disney movies.

Watch it on: iTunes
Set on the island of Tanna in the South Pacific, this Australian-Vanuatuan film tells the true story of a couple who decided to marry for love in spite of their parents’ (and culture’s) wishes.
