Can We Have Oscar Movies on DVD from Netflix? Pleeease???

Providing DVD dates for the Big Movies.  A Public Service just for you.

I know – I feel it, too.  I want to know when I can get all the big Oscar movies on DVD from Netflix.  Well, how about I tell you!  Lots are already released (more nominees, fewer releases to theaters at the last minute).  The dates for others are out there, some have only estimates.  Let’s just have them all in one place, shall we?

Best Picture Nominees:

Up (also Best Animated film win) – Currently available on DVD (released November 10, 2009) and at Netflix

Inglourious Basterds (also Best Supporting Actor Win for Christoph Waltz and Best Director nomination for Quentin Tarantino) – Currently available on DVD (released December 15, 2010) and at Netflix

District 9– Currently available on DVD (released December 22, 2009) and at Netflix

The Hurt Locker (also Best Actor nomination for Jeremy Renner, Best Director Win for Katherine Bigelow) – Currently available on DVD (released January 12, 2010) and at Netflix

A Serious Man– Currently available (released February 9, 2010) and at Netflix

Up in the Air (also Best Actor nomination for George Clooney, Best Supporting Actress nominations for Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga, Best Director nomination for Jason Reitman) – Currently available on DVD (released March 9, 2010) and at Netflix

Additional titles with acting nominations:

A Single Man (Best Actor nomination for Colin Firth) – Currently available on DVD and at Netflix

Invictus – (Best Actor nomination for Morgan Freeman, Best Supporting Actor nomination for Matt Damon) – Currently available on DVD and at Netflix

The Last Station (nomination for Helen Mirren as Best Actress and Christopher Plummer as Best Supporting Actor) – Currently available on DVD and at Netflix

Netflix tends to have movies available on the day they are released on DVD – I’ll be hoping to have The Blind Side in my mailbox by the weekend.  There might be a wait for that one, but I’m guessing it won’t be long.

Interesting that so many of the Best Picture nominees are already out, but many of those with nominated performances have yet to set dates.  I don’t know what that means (probably nothing) but it is interesting.  Okay, maybe just to me.

So there you have it, DVD watchers!  Lots of this year’s Oscar Biggies are already out there and others are arriving very soon.  Most have or will have both regular and Blu-Ray versions available.  If there’s a movie I missed, leave a comment and I’ll try and find out when you can get your hands on it.  Let’s watch us some movies!
