The Oscars are usually anticipated every February or March, so this year’s April celebration is noticeably delayed. Additionally, the Academy has also adjusted the submission deadlines and extended the eligibility period. All films nominated have a release date between January 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021. 

While we missed out on watching the Oscar nominated films on the big screen, Netflix brings us 18 films to enjoy safely in our own homes. Now we can have a pre-Oscars movie marathon before the ceremony happening on April 25! Which of these movies are you watching first?
