  1. I’ve only seen two of this year’s nominated movies and none of the Best Picture finalists. Since I am a movie fan, I enjoy the pursuit of seeing as many of the finalists as possible before the ceremony. I like the Oscar Showcases AMC puts together and have been missing it the past couple of years. I’m going to see if they’re doing it this year.

  2. I will try to compile a list of where you can see these streaming. Most of them you can see in your PJs at home. I just watched the Mitchels vs the Machines and it is a really fun and good movie. You have to watch all the fun credits at the end.

  3. Thanks, Linda! That would be kewl.

    I know many of the finalists are being streamed and it looks like AMC is once again skipping the little film festival style showcase they did before shelter-in-place started. AMC is, however, doing something in March that spreads the finalists out over a week or two. I haven’t yet looked into whether or not Cinemark is doing anything special.
