The Academy Awards (a.k.a. The Oscars) was aired last night and we finally got to see the winners. Here’s how to watch the 2016 Oscar winning movies.
The big winner of The Oscars was no doubt Mad Max: Fury Road, and while it didn’t win Best Picture, it still received six Oscars, which is incredibly impressive for what could be considered a rather niche film.
Spotlight won Best Picture, and Leonardio DiCaprio won his first-ever Oscar for his leading role in The Revenant, making it quite a historical night for the Academy Awards.
You might have seen some of the movies that won Oscars, as many of them were at least several months old, and most of them are now out on DVD and Blu-ray, but if you still need to catch up on the winning movies from last night, here’s how to watch the 2016 Oscar winning movies.
While Spotlight didn’t receive a lot of awards during the 2016 Oscars, it did win Best Picture, as well as Best Original Screenplay.
Unfortunately, Spotlight is available to stream on any subscription-based streaming service, but it is available to purchase digitally on Google Play for $14.99, or rent for $4.99.
Leonardio DiCaprio won his first Oscar with his role in The Revenant. The film also won Best Cinematography and Best Directing.
As with Spotlight, The Revenant isn’t available to stream on subscription-based streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, but you can pre-order a digital copy of the movie on Google Play for $14.99. It’s also available to pre-order on Vudu for the same price.
If it’s a physical disc that you’re looking for, you can pre-order the Blu-ray version for $22.99, and the DVD version for $19.99 on Amazon.
Brie Larson won an Oscar for Best Leading Actress for her performance in Room, and that was the film’s only Oscar win of the night.
If you’re interested in watching the movie, it’s available to either buy or rent on Vudu. Renting the HD version will cost $5.99 and the SD version costs $4.99. You can also buy an HD digital copy for $14.99 or an SD copy for $12.99.
You can also buy the Blu-ray for $16.99 and the DVD for $12.99 on Amazon.
Bridge of Spies
While Tom Hanks was the starring role in Bridge of Spies, it was Mark Rylance who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, which was the film’s lone award for the night.
You can watch the movie on iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, and the PlayStation Store. An HD rental in the iTunes Store is $5.99, with a purchase being $19.99. The same prices are available in Vudu as well.
The movie is also available in multi-format on Amazon for $22.99.
The Danish Girl
The Danish Girl won a single Oscar last night, and it was given to Alicia Vikander for Best Supporting Actress. It’s certainly not a film that’s as well-known as The Revenant by any means, but it was certainly worthy of praise.
Inside Out is perhaps one of the best movies Pixar has made in a while, and it certainly earned its Best Animated Film award, making it the movie’s only Oscar win.
The movie is available to purchase or rent on iTunes for $19.99 and $5.99, respectively, as well as on Google Play to buy for $14.99. You can also buy the movie on the PlayStation Store for $19.99 for the HD version or $14.99 for the SD version.
Inside Out is also available in multi-format on Amazon for $22.99.
The latest James Bond film didn’t win any Oscars as far as the film-making was concerned, but it did win an Oscar for the Best Original Song, called Writing’s on the Wall by Sam Smith.
The Blu-ray version is available on Amazon for $19.99, with the DVD version costing $15.99.
Mad Max: Fury Road
The top winner of the night was Mad Max: Fury Road, which was nominated ten times and won six Oscars, including Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, and Film Editing.
You can also buy the movie in multi-format on Amazon for $25, with a 4K version available for $29.99.
