Nine films were in contention for the Best Picture prize this year, and most of them can be watched from the comfort of your couch, along with some of the movies that scored writing and acting trophies. Here are the movies that won big at the Oscars and where you can find them.
Parasite (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best International Feature)
Bong Joon Ho‘s highly celebrated drama got everyone talking for all the right reasons, and it became the award darling of the night, grabbing prizes for Best International Feature, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Picture. Parasite is available to buy on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, MoviesAnywhere, Vudu, and GooglePlay.
Joker (Best Actor, Best Original Score)
Todd Phillips‘ gritty take on the DC villain certainly made an impact on the 2019 cinematic scene, but the runaway winner for the movie was Joaquin Phoenix, who won Best Actor. Composer Hildur Guðnadóttir also took home her first Oscar for her work on the film’s score. Joker was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing, and a slew of other technical achievements. Rent or buy the film on FandangoNow, MoviesAnywhere, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, GooglePlay, and YouTube.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Best Supporting Actor, Best Production Design)
Quentin Tarantino‘s love letter to Hollywood might just add some new trophies to his already-heavy shelf, but it also earned Brad Pitt his first acting Oscar. Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for his very GIFable performance, along with the film’s cinematographer, costume and production designers, and sound team. Fans can rent or buy the film on FandangoNow, MoviesAnywhere, Vudu, GooglePlay, and YouTube.
Marriage Story (Best Supporting Actress)
Noah Baumbach‘s gutting take on the collapse of a marriage earned a spot on this prestigious list with a Best Supporting Actress win for Laura Dern as well as nods for Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver and Baumbach himself, for his original screenplay, and composer Randy Newman for the score. Stream it on Netflix.
Judy (Best Actress)
Renée Zellweger has already collected a Golden Globe, a Critics’ Choice Award, and a SAG award for her turn as Judy Garland in this biopic, but she also took home the Oscar for her stunning performance. Rent or buy the film on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, Vudu, GooglePlay, and YouTube.
Jojo Rabbit (Best Adapted Screenplay)
Taiki Waititi‘s dark WWII comedy might not have been for everybody, but Oscar voters obviously had a rip-roaring good time with the inventive narrative and awarded the writer-director for his adapted screenplay. The film was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Scarlett Johansson) and the technical talents behind the pic. Jojo Rabbit is available on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, MoviesAnywhere, Vudu, and GooglePlay.
Rocketman (Best Original Song)
Elton John was exceptionally supportive of this musical biopic of his life and even contributed an original number, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again,” for which he won the Oscar. Rocketman is available to rent or buy on Amazon Prime Video and FandangoNow.
Ford v Ferrari (Film Editing, Sound Editing)
The Academy’s engines were definitely revving when it came to James Mangold‘s biopic about carmaker Carroll Shelby and race car driver Ken Miles. Although actors Matt Damon and Christian Bale didn’t hear their names read out for nominations, the film showed up and dominated in two technical fields: Film Editing and Sound Editing. Ford v. Ferrari is available to buy on Jan. 28 on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, MoviesAnywhere, Vudu, and GooglePlay.
Toy Story 4 (Best Animated Feature)
After Toy Story 3 seemed to put a cap on the adventures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story 4 came along to prove there was still some life left in Pixar’s tentpole franchise — and a few fun new characters to introduce as well. Toy Story 3 previously won for Best Animated Feature in 2011. Toy Story 4 followed in those footsteps with a Best Animated Feature win as well. It is now available to stream on Disney+, or you could rent or buy the film on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, and GooglePlay.
American Factory (Best Documentary Feature)
The Obamas’ first production with Netflix competed for Best Documentary Feature — and won! — after impressing critics with its meaningful inspection of culture and capitalism through the lens of an Ohio factory. Stream it on Netflix.
Films Featuring Nominated Actors
These pictures may not have taken home trophies, but they feature some of the most beloved performances of the year that are definitely still worth checking out.
Netflix’s massive investment in this three-plus-hour Martin Scorsese mafia opus may have walked away with no gold statuettes at the Oscars, but it still stars three nominated performers from three of the best actors of all time: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. Not only was the film among the streaming service’s most popular original offerings, but it amassed nominations for its director, stars Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, screenwriter Steven Zaillan, and more. Stream it on Netflix.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
America’s dad Tom Hanks did not take home an Oscar, but his turn as everyone’s favorite neighbor Fred Rogers is not to be missed. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is available to buy on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, and Vudu.
Pain and Glory

The Two Popes
Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins competed for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively for their turns as — aha — the Two Popes in this Netflix original. Anthony McCarten’s script was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Stream it on Netflix.
It’s hard to believe that Frozen II, the long-awaited sequel to the 2013 Disney film that knocked the Academy’s socks off, got iced out of the Best Animated Feature competition, but into the unknown we go! These are the five films that competed in the category alongside Toy Story 4.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
The final installment to Dreamworks’ animated fantasy trilogy was also the third of the films to receive an Oscar nomination in the Animated Feature Film category. Rent or buy the movie on Amazon Prime Video, FandangoNow, and Vudu.
Sergio Pablos‘ directorial debut about the history of Santa Claus was an emotional and visual wallop of achievement. The film may be holiday-centered, but the quality of the story is evergreen. Stream it on Netflix.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe brought out all of the big guns — and rocket blasters and shields and every other weapon in the galaxy — to bring an end to the Iron Man era.
