Who needs movie theaters when your couch is so much more comfortable? These days, even awards-worthy flicks are available via your favorite streaming platform soon after a theatrical release. To help narrow down your choices, Vanity Fair compiled a list of nine awards season-worthy movies you can watch right from the comfort of your home:

  1. The Lobster. Colin Farrell nabbed a Golden Globes nod for his role in this flick, which can be rented at iTunes, Amazon Video, YouTube, and Google Play.
  2. Florence Foster Jenkins. Golden Globe and SAG nominations make this high society flick, which is available via FandangoNOW and iTunes, a good weekend watch.
  3. Hell or High Water. Not only does this Western feature a dynamic trio (Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Ben Foster), it’s available on iTunes or Amazon for a reasonable rental price.
  4. Captain Fantastic. Viggo Mortensen was nominated for a Golden Globe and SAG award for this indie flick, which is YouTube, Amazon, Google Play and iTunes.

  6. O.J.: Made in America. This seven-plus-hour true life documentary is a favorite to be nominated for an Oscar. Stream it for free on Hulu Plus (or get individual episodes on iTunes) so you’re caught up for awards season.
