Best Picture Nominees and Winners You Can Stream Right Now

And, every year, many movie fans try to watch all of the recognized pictures before the golden statuettes are given out. If it’s not possible to see all of the current nominees in time, watching at least some of the past Best Pictures winners will do.

Some of the movies that have been judged as the best in the year they were released have not stood the test of time and have been all but forgotten. Some are now considered classics but made little money when they came out. Here are Oscar winning movies that didn’t turn a profit.
