Where and how to watch every 2016 Oscar-nominated movie

Brodie Fogg 15 January 2016

oscars wide logoThe 2016 Oscar nominations have been announced. Here is how and where you can watch every nominated film. 

This morning, the 2016 Oscar nominations were announced. In the mix, there were many anticipated titles, like Spotlight and The Martian, and some totally unexpected titles, such as Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvester Stallone for Creed. Stallone has also been nominated for the Razzie Redeemer award, an award reserved for individuals who have bounced back after previously being awarded a Razzie.

There's no doubt 2015 was a brilliant year for film, but with huge titles like The Revenant taking centre-stage at the moment, it's easy to forget some gems from earlier in the year, like Oscar Isaac's Ex-Machina. Take a look at the list below to learn about some stunning cinema you may have missed in 2015.
