"American Hustle," still out in theaters, is tied for the most Oscar nominations with "Gravity."

A viewing guide to the 2014 Oscar nominations


As you may have heard, the Oscar nominations came out yesterday morning. The next 44 days will be filled with talk of snubs, surprises and expectations.

But what about the most important part: the movies themselves? 43 total feature films were nominated for awards yesterday, and if you're like me (which, if you are, I'm sorry), you have an OCD-level compulsion to see them all. Most of them are still in theaters (an overwhelming majority of the nominees, namely in the major categories, were released within the past three months), but some can be harder to find.

To help, here's a list of all the nominees listed in alphabetical order and where you can currently find and watch them. Then, come March 2, you'll be able to impress all of your friends with your knowledge about the nominees for Best Sound Mixing. Maybe impress isn't the right word …

Matt, I am like you and this time of year excites/stresses me out. Just wanted you to know you missed a few movies. There are 43 features nominated and 15 shorts (58 in total). You are missing info on the following 4 features that I'd love to see: Omar, The Missing Picture, The Wind Rises, & Ernest & Celestine. Please post an update if you know where to see any of these! Thanks!
