Catch up on the 2016 Oscar nominees before the awards!

The 2016 Academy Awards take place this Sunday, February 27 and that means a lot of our favorite films will be taking home the Oscar. If you haven't had a chance to see them all yet — I confess, I've only seen The Martian and Mad Max: Fury Road so far, and loved both! — you still have time to catch up on either iTunes or Amazon.

Many of the best picture nominees are already available for digital purchase or rental, or on Blu-Ray, so you can make sure you know your favorites before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences make their picks!

The Big Short

Bridge of Spies


Mad Max: Fury Road

The Martian

The Revenant



Your recommendations?

I saw Creed and Straight Outta Compton as well, and loved both. They recaptured different parts of my childhood, old scars and old inspirations, and while they didn't get nominated, I can't recommend them enough. Any movies that didn't get nominated this year but are still can't miss on your list? Let me know!
