The nominees for the 95th Academy Awards were announced this morning, with the absurdist sci-fi comedy “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” the Irish comedy-drama “The Banshees of Inisherin” and the Netflix World War I movie “All Quiet on the Western Front” leading with the most nominations, including best picture. All three of those films and many others are currently available on various platforms, along with many other major nominees for best picture and the various acting and screenplay awards. A handful of titles are still in their theatrical runs, like “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Women Talking,” “The Whale” and “Living,” though “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” makes its way to Disney+ next week. Here’s a complete rundown of where to find all the major awards hopefuls.

‘The Banshees of Inisherin’

Nominated for: Best picture, director, actor, supporting actor, supporting actress, original screenplay, score, editing.

How to watch: Stream it on HBO Max. Rent it on Amazon, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu and YouTube.

Reuniting with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, the stars of his 2008 hit man comedy “In Bruges,” the writer-director Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) once again harnesses the pair’s frisky chemistry for laughs, but with stronger notes of melancholy and political upheaval. On a remote island off the coast of Ireland, which still roils from civil war in 1923, a folk musician (Gleeson) abruptly decides to terminate his friendship with a longtime drinking buddy (Farrell), who naturally doesn’t understand what went wrong. In a place where companionship of any kind is hard to muster, their rift seems especially inexplicable, setting off an escalating series of consequences.


Nominated for: Best picture, actor, cinematography, editing, production design, costume design, makeup and hairstyling, sound.

How to watch: Stream it on HBO Max. Rent it on Amazon, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu and YouTube.

The rise and fall of Elvis Presley may have the familiar arc of a typical musician biopic in “Elvis,” but the director Baz Luhrmann feeds this story through the same whirring pop-culture Cuisinart that fueled anachronistic hits like “Moulin Rouge” and “William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet.” Though Luhrmann explores the King’s childhood roots in Deep South poverty, “Elvis” focuses mainly on the relationship between Presley (Austin Butler) and his controlling manager Col. Tom Parker (Tom Hanks), a shameless huckster who steered the singer to fame and fortune, but took a parasitic toll on his career.

‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’

Nominated for: Best picture, director, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, original screenplay, editing, costume design, score, song.

How to watch: Stream it on Showtime.

As the beaten-down, put-upon proprietor of a failing laundromat (the Hong Kong legend Michelle Yeoh) faces the hassles of a Chinese New Year party for her visiting father and a hostile audit from an I.R.S. agent (Jamie Lee Curtis), she discovers that the multiverse has bigger plans for her. Nothing is off the table in this absurdist sci-fi comedy/drama by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, a.k.a. Daniels (“Swiss Army Man”), who cast Yeoh as a laundromat owner who’s surprised to discover that only she has the power to keep an interdimensional rupture from consuming the world. Her mission is crazier than it sounds, but affecting, too, in its insights on family and the immigrant experience in America.
