Movie awards season is finally reaching its conclusion. The winners of last Sunday’s Golden Globes are often seen as Oscar nominee front-runners, so it’s now time for the casual movie fan to focus on which movies may earn Academy Award nominations this year (as opposed to the fanatics who stress about these nominations year-round).

In anticipation of the Feb. 9 award show, I have compiled a list of 25 possible Oscar nominees that are available to stream right now. Many of the movies can be found on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu with basic subscriptions. I’ve also added a few that you can already rent online. Unfortunately, personal 2019 favorites of mine such as “Little Women,” “Parasite” and “Uncut Gems” aren’t available to rent yet, but at least you can rent “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “The Farewell.”

This list includes both long-shot nominees as well as near surefire locks. All of the movies have earned high praise in some form or another throughout the year. So even if a strong movie such as “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” ultimately gets shut out at the Oscars this year, it’s still worth viewing.

Read on for the full list of 25.
