Your very last-minute guide to Oscar cramming

This guy again?

What we have to look forward to at this Sunday’s 84th annual Academy Awards on ABC at 7pm: skits of our host Billy Crystal plopped into War Horse and Moneyball, shots of Martin Scorsese raising his downy eyebrows and pretending to care about whatever is going on and, perhaps, an appearance by the Uggie, the best supporting canine of The Artist. Puppies aside, the Oscars are much more fun if you have a team to root for. So if you’ve been too broke to get to the movies for a while but you can still swing a ticket, why not treat yourself to a viewing? Also, if you’re not up to paying the full weekend prices, there’s no shame in waiting for the Tuesday $7 matinees. Here’s where you can still catch some of the nominees on Netflix and in theaters.

NETFLIX

A few of the Documentary Feature picks are on Netflix instant watch. So if your wallet is more in shape for a three-buck chuck and streaming movie night you can catch Hell and Back Again and If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front on there.

On top of that, you can get a hold of a handful of the nominees from earlier this year via old-fashioned, DVD-in-the-mail route. This includes, Moneyball, Bridesmaids, The Ides of March, The Help Drive, Beginners, Anonymous and Jane Eyre.
