The 2016 Oscar Winners and Nominees – Where to Watch

Well, Oscar Season has rolled around again; the sober version of the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards is the award show that everybody waits all year for- they’re the big show, and we’ve put together a handy guide to the movies which have been nominated as well as those that won. Additionally, we have handy links to purchase the films (and their source material, for those adapted from books) on Amazon. Those which is not available on Amazon (such as Netflix exclusives), we also link to. Full disclosure, we employ Amazon Affiliate links; it won’t cost you anything extra to purchase by clicking on these links; our cut comes from Amazon’s own pocket.
If you’re looking for The Revenant, you should know that while the film was based on a book by Michael Punke, and while it did not get nominated for for Best Adapted Screenplay, you can find the book here.

The Man from UNCLE Henry Cavill Armie Hammer

Before we get started, my own personal recommendations begin with When Marnie Was There, the latest Ghibli film to be nominated, based on the book of the same name by Joan G. Robinson; if you’re a fan of the fantasy genre known as magic realism, it’ll be right up your alley. I can also recommend checking out The Man from U.N.C.L.E. which in spite of having fantastic editing, an incredible soundtrack and great cinematography, somehow wasn’t nominated for anything.

So, what do you think of this year’s nominees and winners? Disappointed that Pixar’s Lava was somehow snubbed from the best short animated film category? Upset that The Man from U.N.L.C.E. somehow wasn’t nominated for having an incredible soundtrack or editing and directing?
