It's that time of year again! 

That's right it's Oscars time. Time to binge watch all the movies you missed that are now nominated for Academy Awards! 

I for one don't go to the movies much anymore. Yes, it's because I have a questionable attention span. Yes, it's because I don't like their "no cell phone" rule. But these days you don't have to wait too long before all the movies are available to stream (or buy on DVD, if you're "old school") in the comfort of your own home.

And this year I've done all the work for you. I've compiled all the movies that have been nominated for the "fun" awards (because who really cares about the technical awards? I sure don't) -- Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor/Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay -- and given you the low down on where you can watch them. This is all you need to know to kick ass on your 2017 Academy Award Ballot.

Oh, and to keep y'all educated I also included the five movies nominated for Best Documentary Feature. Let's all learn a little something, shall we?

Now get your snacks ready and get to work!
