Where to watch all 2023 – Oscar-nominated movies

1. Everything Everywhere All at Once

Where to watch: Showtime, Apple TV

This action-packed, multiverse-hopping genre mashup was nominated for 11 awards, including best film, original screenplay, directing (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), actress (Michelle Yeoh), supporting actor (Ke Huy Quan), and supporting actress (Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu). Yeoh shines as a laundromat owner whose tax problems are put on hold when she is given a crash course in different realities and is forced to learn from the lives of her other selves in order to thwart a nihilistic villain.

2. The Banshees of Inisherin

Where to watch: HBO Max

Being ghosted by a friend or loved one is a common source of stress and heartbreak. Add a 1920s remote Irish island setting and two of their generations’ greatest actors, and you’ve got a best picture nominee with something to say. Martin McDonagh’s brilliantly dismal examination of isolation, desperation, and mortality lets Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson loose as ex-best friends in a sudden heated quarrel, with fine supporting roles from Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan as characters caught up in their not-so-civil war.

3. Elvis

Where to watch: HBO Max

The stylish musical drama directed by Baz Luhrmann, nominated for best picture, pays tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll from his early 1950s gigs to his later days as a Vegas headliner. Young women (and older ones, too) scream and swoon in preternatural delight as a burgeoning Elvis (top-notch leading man Austin Butler, who earned his first best actor nomination) lays into the rockabilly tune “Baby Let’s Play House.”

4. All Quiet on the Western Front

Where to watch: Netflix

The latest adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s novel, told from a German point of view, is harrowing and deeply effective with its anti-war message. And Academy voters loved it, nominating it for nine awards, including best picture and international film. While an officer (Daniel Brühl) desperately negotiates for an armistice, a 17-year-old (Felix Kammerer) lies about his age to proudly go to the front lines of World War I, witnesses carnage, and becomes numb to the brutality.

5. Top Gun: Maverick

Where to watch: Paramount+, Amazon Prime

Tom Cruise is famous for his daring “Mission: Impossible” stunts, but he’s much better in the cockpit of a fighter jet. Despite not receiving a best actor nomination, Cruise exudes A-list cool as the returning flyboy from the 1986 original training a new crop of young pilots in an endlessly entertaining, nostalgic sequel that earned best picture, screenplay, and original song nominations and made Glen Powell a major movie star.

6. The Fabelmans

Where to watch: Apple TV

Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story – which received Oscar nominations for best picture, directing, actress (Michelle Williams), and supporting actor (Judd Hirsch) – transports viewers to the 1950s and 1960s and the legendary filmmaker’s upbringing in a Jewish family. Gabriel LaBelle dazzles as adolescent Spielberg (Sammy Fabelman), a kid whose creative world explodes when he gets his hands on a camera, all while navigating parental drama and antisemitic bullying.

7. Tár

Where to watch: Apple TV, Peacock (starting Friday)

The film, powered by Blanchett’s baton-wielding tour de force, is a modern tale about a cultural giant who abuses her power in unsavoury ways, so there are #MeToo elements at play. “Tár,” on the other hand, has a more timeless quality, playing out in the style of a Greek tragedy with the epic downfall of a bad-behaving woman.

8. Triangle of Sadness

Where to watch: Apple TV

A wealthy couple, played by Harris Dickinson and the late Charlbi Dean, is invited to travel on a yacht captained by a crazy, Marxist-loving American (Woody Harrelson) in this class satire. The ship encounters an unruly storm, resulting in the most disgusting, vomit-drenched dinner you have ever experienced, and then sinks in an absurd manner, revealing who really rules and turning the tables on the wealthy.

9. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Where to watch: Netflix

A tech billionaire (Edward Norton) hosts a murder mystery getaway on his ridiculously opulent private Greek island for his longtime crew, which also includes Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautista, Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, and Kate Hudson. Benoit Blanc, the Southern detective played by Daniel Craig, mysteriously appears, a body falls to the ground, and the fun and twisty sequel by director Rian Johnson is underway.

10. RRR

Where to watch: Netflix

The Indian blockbuster stars N.T. Rama Rao Jr. and Ram Charan are buff heroes who take on 1920s British colonialists in a must-watch movie – the greatest of last year – with love tales and over-the-top spirit. It not only received an Oscar nomination for best picture, but its nominated original song “Naatu Naatu,” which features our two characters in a dance duel with a smarmy British guy, won a Golden Globe and will compete against Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

11. Turning Red

Where to watch: Disney+

The family-friendly comedy – a contender for best animated feature – takes on a universal aspect of people’s lives in heartwarming fashion, in this case, female puberty. In director Domee Shi’s amusing and powerful ode to monster movies, 2000s-era boy bands, Asian culture, and growing up, a Toronto adolescent (voiced by Rosalie Chiang) wakes up to discover that when she gets extremely excited, she transforms into an 8-foot-tall big red panda.

12. Causeway

Where to watch: Apple TV+

Jennifer Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henry, who received his first Oscar nomination, give outstanding performances in this moving drama. Lynsey (Lawrence) is a soldier who returns to New Orleans after suffering a brain injury while serving in Afghanistan, but she needs to improve her physical and mental health on several levels. Lynsey makes a friend in James (Henry), a friendly mechanic who is dealing with his own issues. Meanwhile, Lawrence and Henry develops a friendship as the plot goes.

13. Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

Where to watch: Netflix

Guillermo del Toro, a modern master of the macabre, twists the old fairy tale in a delightful stop-motion animated interpretation set in 1930s Italy. The fanciful tale tackles war and Nazism, with a precocious, troublemaking wooden puppet desperate to be a real boy and a star-studded voice cast (from Ewan McGregor to Cate Blanchett).

14. To Leslie

Where to watch: Apple TV

Andrea Riseborough’s best actress nomination was the biggest surprise on Oscars day. Thanks to a social-media campaign spearheaded by celebrities such as Kate Winslet and Jane Fonda. In the drama, Riseborough plays a single mother from West Texas who is fighting to support her son after he wins the lottery, wastes the money, and then receives a second chance years later.

15. Navalny

Where to watch: HBO Max

Daniel Roher’s documentary, nominated for best documentary, is an engrossing and uplifting stranger-than-fiction look at the life and near-death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. The film follows the investigation into the 2020 assassination of a charismatic dissident (and President Vladimir Putin’s main political rival) but it also makes an emotional impact by including interviews with Navalny’s kids and the subject himself, a man willing to go to great lengths for his country.
