Most of the frontrunners for Best Picture, including Lady Bird, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Post, and The Shape of Water are still in theaters. We highly recommend a Movie Pass for seeing the bulk of those – to keep costs down. Several of the nominees can be watched from your sofa through streaming services or Video on Demand, so we put together this cheat sheet for you gentle reader.
If you’re joining us for #OscarBinge this year (the challenge to see every movie nominated for any kind of Academy Award between the nominations and the awards ceremony), here are the “rules” for it:
- See all the nominated films between today and Sunday, March 4 at 7:00 pm.
- Don’t see movies you don’t want to see. That’s silly.
- Do see movies you’re curious about or might not otherwise see outside a crazy #OscarBinge
- Share your photos and reviews and tag @reallyshortreviews and #OscarBinge, so we know how it’s going.
