When cinemas were allowed to open once again after MCO, Malaysians rejoiced so much that the ground shook! Okay, maybe that didn’t happen, but there is zero doubt that we LOVE our movies, from blockbusters all the way to international movies and indie darlings.

And one way we like celebrating the awesomeness of movies is to watch the Academy Awards show (or the Oscars) to find out which of our favourite movies got the recognition they deserve. Plus, we get to swoon over our celebrity hunks and hotties, who will be dressed up to the nines in gorgeous gowns and stylish suits on the red carpet! 😍

If you’re planning to catch the 94th Oscars ceremony this year, then we have a recommendation for you!

Here’s how you can watch Oscar-nominated movies in one place!

Fighting Shang Chi
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is in the running to win Best Visual Effects at the 2022 Oscars!

Now you can watch most of the Oscar nominees on Astro too, thanks to their partnership with Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar and HBO GO. And my oh my, there’s quite a selection for you to choose from, and it even includes some of the lesser-known movies!

It can be a bit of drag to keep track of which Astro partner app is streaming which movie, so we’ve compiled a list of Oscar nominees, both blockbusters and more indie-ish stuff, and arranged them according to the platforms you can watch them from! Check them out below:
