The nominees for the 96th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning, with “Oppenheimer,” Christopher Nolan’s sprawling examination of the dawn of the Atomic Age, leading with 13 nods including Best Picture. It was followed closely behind by Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Poor Things,” a feminist fantasy set in a steampunk world of mutants and male chauvinist pigs, which earned 11 nominations.

“Killers of the Flower Moon,” Martin Scorsese’s historical crime drama about a vast conspiracy to rob the Osage Nation of its oil wealth, received 10 nominations, and Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie,” last year’s biggest box office hit, earned eight nominations.

Although many of the Academy’s favorite films only recently arrived in theaters, many of them are already available to stream online (or to rent/purchase digitally on Prime Video and Apple TV), which means you can easily watch a large majority of the 37 Oscar-nominated feature films online before tuning into the Oscars on March 10.

Variety‘s Review: “‘Oppenheimer’ tacks on a trendy doomsday message about how the world was destroyed by nuclear weapons. But if Oppenheimer, in his way, made the bomb all about him, by that point it’s Nolan and his movie who are doing the same thing.”

Variety‘s Review: “Against this spirit of sensual and sensory richness, experimental pop artist Jerskin Fendrix’s gnawing, atonal score — mirroring Bella’s switching fixations by doggedly stressing one instrument at a time — stands out for its severity.”

Variety‘s Review“The thing about Östlund is that he makes you laugh, but he also makes you think. There’s a meticulous precision to the way he constructs, blocks and executes scenes — a kind of agonizing unease, amplified by awkward silences or an unwelcome fly buzzing between characters struggling to communicate.”

Variety‘s Review: “From the opening scene, set in an unfinished chalet in the French Alps, it often feels as if the movie is eavesdropping on moments too intimate to be shared — except that husband and wife are both novelists, and domestic conflict serves as the raw material of their work.:”

Variety‘s Review: “Payne teases several romantic subplots, flirting with the possibility of taking manipulative shortcuts — tricks that would’ve been surefire ways to wrench tears from his audience — but wisely steers the focus back to his characters and the work they still need to do on themselves.”

Variety‘s Review“Instead of focusing his cameras on the Native victims, the ‘Irishman’ director lets Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro have the lion’s share of the screen time in this meaty but demanding true-crime saga.”

Where to Watch: Streaming on Netflix.

Variety‘s Review: “’Maestro’ can’t help but be dominated by the grandeur of Bernstein’s passion, his outsize flaws, and the tightrope he walked between the need to find the meaning of beauty and the desire to stay fancy free. Yet Cooper and Mulligan make the movie a duet to remember.”

Variety‘s Review: “It’s a remarkable film — chilling and profound, meditative and immersive, a movie that holds human darkness up to the light and examines it as if under a microscope.”

Variety‘s Review: “Most Americans don’t know the name of the man standing over MLK’s shoulder during the March on Washington, but a galvanizing performance and equally compelling script are sure to change that.”

Oscar Nominations: Best Supporting Actress (Annette Bening); Actress in a Supporting Role (Jodie Foster)

Where to Stream: Netflix

Variety‘s Review: “‘Nyad’ is an almost single-minded account of Diana’s multiple attempts to swim that stretch, and while the experience is long and repetitive enough that you’ll probably emerge with the mental equivalent of prune fingers, feeling as if you made that 53-hour swim yourself, the takeaway is obvious: Never give up.”

Variety‘s Review: “Longoria has been directing shorts and episodic TV for more than a dozen years, bringing all that experience (and just the right amount of sizzle) to a stirring motivational exercise — one that treats Montañez’s charisma-to-burn mythology not as gospel truth so much as a compelling Horatio Alger story.”

Oscar Nominations: Best Original Song

Where to Watch: Netflix

Variety‘s Review“For this warm and lovely film’s most natural audience, which will most likely be families struggling with illness, the documentary’s final inconclusiveness may feel like a feature, not a flaw: Music is forever, and so is chemo, in some cases. Holding those elements in balance is one way to create a symphony.”

Variety‘s Review: “The director’s motives are unclear, much like those of Napoleon Bonaparte, as played by Joaquin Phoenix, who gives a mumbly and oddly anti-charismatic performance as the figure — short, slender and something of an outsider, owing to his Corsican birth — who came to rule France after the revolution.”

Variety‘s Review: “The footage of a near-future war between America and anyone caught developing AI looks stunning, but isn’t enough to save a derivative plot about a cute child-like robot that might also be a superweapon.”

Oscar Nominations: Sound; Visual Effects

Where to Watch: Paramount+ starting Jan. 25.

Variety‘s Review: “As always, the plot is but an excuse for ever more elaborate set-pieces, executed so convincingly that Cruise has acquired a reputation for carrying out all the insane things Hunt is called upon to do in the movie. That’s a testament to more than just the marketing department; Cruise really is committed to topping his previous feats, and though there’s no shortage of good old-fashioned movie magic involved (in the editing and visual effects), the crew does a terrific job of making “Dead Reckoning” look real.”

Variety‘s Review: “With an emotionally engaging storyline and plenty of city-stomping, heat-ray-breathing action, the first live-action Godzilla from Japan since ‘Shin Godzilla’ marks a high point in the long-running series.”

Variety‘s Review“As you would expect from the Spanish director of 2012’s Indian Ocean tsunami drama ‘The Impossible,’ he once again pulls off a rattlingly visceral reconstruction of a real-life catastrophe, pummelling the audience with formal pyrotechnics for throat-grabbing you-are-there effect, before shifting focus to the devastated personal crisis of it all.”

Variety‘s Review: “The images in ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ have an intoxicating unpredictability. The film makes you feel like you’re dropping through the floors of a modern art museum on acid, yet there’s a thrilling moment-to-moment logic to it all.”

Variety‘s Review: “Orphaned by the Fox-Disney merger, then scooped up by Annapurna, this former Blue Sky project feels a million miles removed from anything its original parent studio has made — and that’s a good thing.”

Variety‘s Review: “’Elemental’ is so elaborate and calls for so much exposition that the briskly paced movie is still trying to shoehorn essential backstory into the film’s final reel. Sohn should have made the plot simpler, not faster.”

Variety‘s Review: “Better to think of “The Boy and the Heron” as the bonus round — a worthy but mid-range addition to a remarkable oeuvre that expands his filmography without necessarily topping it. It’s a more fitting finale than 2013’s “The Wind Rises,” but still might not be his last.”

Where to Watch: Apple TV+ starting next month.

Variety‘s Review: “’Perfect Days’ finds its maker in bracing, uncomplicated form: It hasn’t the ecstatic spiritualist philosophy of “Wings of Desire” or the penetrating poetry of human and cultural desolation that marked “Paris, Texas.” But the new film’s humane, hopeful embrace of everyday blessings is enough to make it Wenders’ freshest, most rewarding and arthouse-friendly fiction feature in close on 30 years

Variety‘s Review: “This is bleak but essential viewing, deftly edited by Michelle Mizner, video technology rendering Chernov’s camerawork discomfitingly bright and sharp where not long ago we might have been spared a degree of horror by lesser image clarity.”

Variety‘s Review: “The rare documentary that opens not just with a content warning, but with a request not to share identifying images of its child subject, To Kill a Tiger is a heavy but necessary work about the legalese and cultural attitudes surrounding sexual violence in rural India

Variety‘s Review:  “For those who think they cannot stomach one more, Maite Alberdi‘s “The Eternal Memory” treats inexorably sad material with a lighter, more lyrical approach than most — focusing less on the day-to-day ravages of living with Alzheimer’s than on the slippery, transient concept of memory itself, as formed, held and lost both in the individual mind and a wider collective consciousness.”
