2020 was a weird year. It was an especially challenging year for movie studios, movie theaters, and distributors. Some of the movies nominated for Oscars played in theaters, many went to streaming services only.

This year we have eight Best Picture nominees, but its likely you haven’t seen them all:
“The Father”, “Judas and the Black Messiah”, “Mank”, “Minari”, “Nomadland”, “Promising Young Woman”, “Sound of Metal”, and “The Trial of the Chicago 7”. But its not just the Best Picture nominees you might want to watch before the big night on April 25th.
