A total of around $54.95 might be spent on streaming all contestants. However, select movies in theaters may cost up to $60.
“CODA” starring Duluth native Daniel Durant, is a difficult film to keep up with. You may watch them all if you have a smartphone.
The Academy Awards’ best picture nominees will be televised live online this year.
The ideal way to view a movie is still in a theater, albeit this is getting more difficult with the rise of exclusive streaming releases. All 10 of this year’s candidates had theatrical runs, albeit many of them ended prior to the announcement of the nominations.
What is a completer to do before the Academy Awards in two weeks?
Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services provide a diverse selection of films. To purchase all ten, there are two choices that cost around $60 apiece and do not need you to sign up for Disney Plus or Hulu.
Several of the ten are more suited to the little screen than the others. This is especially true of Janusz Kamiski’s visually beautiful “West Side Story” images.
It is probable that “West Side Story” and other rivals are still in circulation. Marcus Oakdale’s spinning “spotlight” enables nightly screenings of one Oscar candidate. Additionally, AMC Theaters will begin screening seven of the ten films beginning March 18: Belfast, Drive My Car, Dune, King Richard, Licorice Pizza, Nightmare Alley, and West Side Story. Each one costs $5, so when Junior Mints are excluded, the total for all seven is around $45.
Following that are “CODA” and “Don’t Look Up.” You’ll need Apple TV Plus or Netflix to see “CODA” and “Don’t Look Up,” respectively, as they have not yet been distributed in cinemas. As a result, Netflix’s lowest plan is $4.99 a month, while Apple does not provide a free trial.
“The Power of the Dog,” which may or may not make a comeback to the big screen but is a certain conclusion on Netflix, should be included to the list. Three extra films may be added to the seven already scheduled at AMC to bring the total to $60.
Our second option requires both Amazon and HBO Max.
The latter, which costs $14.99 a month (ad-free), gets you halfway to your goal. In addition to West Side Story, you will now be able to play Dune and King Richard’s Drive My Car. For just $29.97 with the $14.98 Netflix and Apple combo, eight out of the 10 finalists have already been seen.
For $19.99, you can purchase “Licorice Pizza,” a well-crafted image that is best viewed on a large screen. “Belfast” costs $4.99 on Amazon, so you’ll end up paying $54.95.
Consult your neighborhood multiplex or rent a film from a different source to determine what is showing in your neighborhood (“West Side Story” and “Belfast,” for instance, are available on several). It’s time to go back to work! At 8:00 p.m., ABC will broadcast the 94th Academy Awards.
