Can you use some help with your Academy Awards homework?  With a few weeks to go, it’s helpful to know what might be coming out on DVD soon, so that you can plan which ones you can try to catch in the theatres, and which ones you may still be able to watch at home.

If you’re trying to watch as many nominated movies and performances as you can before the Oscars, below is a list of films and dates for a few that will have their DVD release between now and February 24th..

Green Book – February 19th.
It’s already won 3 Golden Globes (Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali), the Critics Choice for Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali, the SAG award for Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali, and the People’s Choice Award when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. At the Oscars, it’s up for five awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Viggo Mortensen, and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali.




A Star is Born – February 19th
Lady Gaga has already picked up Best Actress at the Critics Choice Awards, and a Golden Globe for co-writing the Best Song in a Motion Picture. At the Oscars, it’s up for seven awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Actress for Lady Gaga, Best Actor for Bradley Cooper, and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Elliot.



The Wife – January 29th
Glenn Close already has a lot of hardware for this film, having won Best Actress at the Golden Globes, The Critic’s Choice, and the SAG Awards. She’s also up for a Best Actress Oscar.


At Eternity’s Gate – February 12th
This has been called the role of his career for Willem Dafoe, who plays Vincent Van Gogh in the biopic about the artist’s life. He is nominated for the Best Actor Oscar.



If the movie you are looking for isn’t on this list, it may already be out.

Other notable Oscar nominated films that are already available for streaming on DVD, include Black Panther, Black Klansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Roma.

Others that won’t make DVD release before the big night, that you may still be able to find in theatres include The Favourite,
If Beale Street Could Talk, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and Vice.

The 91st Academy Awards will be broadcast Sunday, February 24th at 8 p.m. Check listings for channels.

Oh! And if you will be recording the show (it DOES go late, doesn’t it?) remember to set up your DVR to record beyond 12:30 am.. just in case.
