Where to Watch the Films on the Oscar Shortlists

The Academy has announced the shortlists for nine categories for the upcoming Oscars! Wow, the longest season in Oscar history is finally starting to shape up?! The categories and number of films in each shortlist include documentary feature (15), documentary short subject (10), international feature (15), makeup and hairstyling (10), original score (15), original song (15), animated short film (10), live-action short film (10) and visual effects (10).

Now if you’re interested in making sure you’re all caught up on Oscar-eligible films, the shortlists could make it a bit easier to check off what you still need to see! Let’s breakdown what made each shortlist and most importantly, where to watch the films! Editor’s note, skipping on the shorts! I’m sorry!
