Overview of Oscar statues on display at 'Meet the Oscars' at the Time Warner Center on February 25, 2010 in New York City.

In case you haven't had chance to see each Best Picture nominee this year, fear not, there's still chance!

With the 2019 Oscars taking place this weekend, now is the perfect time to catch up on any of the biggest films you may have missed before the awards ceremony takes places on Sunday night.

In case you've missed any of this year's best picture nominees and you're not sure how to watch, don't you worry because we've got you covered. 

Black Panther

Synopsis: T'Challa, heir to the hidden but advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must step forward to lead his people into a new future and must confront a challenger from his country's past.

Where to watch: As Black Panther's release was well over a year ago, chances of seeing Marvel's first Best Picture nominee at the cinema are slim. However, you may still be in luck as several cinemas will likely show a one-off screening of Black Panther before the Oscars on Sunday.

Failing that, Black Panther is available to buy on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download. But if you don't want to own the film, it's available to stream now on NowTV.


Synopsis: Ron Stallworth, an African American police officer from Colorado Springs, CO, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan branch with the help of a Jewish surrogate who eventually becomes its leader. Based on actual events.

Where to watch: BlacKkKlansman may get the odd screening at a cinema near you due to its Oscar nominations but if you can't make it to a screening in time, the film is available on DVD and digital download.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Synopsis: The story of the legendary rock band Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury, leading up to their famous performance at Live Aid (1985).

Where to watch: Bohemian Rhapsody is not yet available on home release but you may be lucky enough to catch a screening of the Queen biopic at a cinema near you.

The Favourite

Synopsis: In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.

Where to watch: As Yorgos Lanthimos's The Favourite was only released in January, the film won't be available on DVD etc. just yet. But thanks to the awards attention the film is getting, you can be sure to find a screening or two at a cinema near you.

Green Book

Synopsis: A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.

Where to watch: Green Book has only just been released in UK cinemas and won't be released on DVD in Britain for a while yet. However, the film is likely to have a screening or two at your local cinema, we wouldn't recommend missing this one. 


Synopsis: A year in the life of a middle-class family's maid in Mexico City in the early 1970s.

Where to watch: Alfonso Cuaron's Best Picture nominee, Roma, is available to stream now on Netflix and could be the streaming service's first ever Oscar-winning film.

A Star is Born

Synopsis: A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

Where to watch: Bradley Cooper's A Star is Born has been out for a while now and as a result is available on DVD and digital download. But as the hit musical is Oscar-nominated, you can be sure it'll get a cinema screening or two before Sunday.


Synopsis: The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.

Where to watch: The engrossing political biopic that stars Christian Bale as Dick Cheney was only released in January and therefore it'll be some time before Vice makes its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray, but Chris McKay's latest Oscar-nominated film will almost certainly be available to watch in your local cinema.
