Where To Watch The Oscar Nominated Documentaries

For some, the Best Documentary Feature Film is one of those Academy Award categories they don’t pay too much attention to. Many of the nominated films don’t get as wide distribution as most other films leaving Oscar viewers with no horse in this particular race.Thankfully, though, through the advent of streaming video, the lack of local theatrical screenings is no longer an impediment to checking out these films.

Here is a quick guide as to where to find the five nominees online and for physical disc rental. If you have both a streaming and physical Netflix subscription, you are pretty much set for viewing four of the five films, although you will need to go elsewhere for Cartel Land. But even if none of these films were nominated for an Academy Award this year, they are all great films in their own right which I would recommend seeing to you.

The 88th annual Academy Awards will be handed on February 28 so you have six weeks to see these.
