It’s time to start talking about Cinema’s Biggest Night.

Just a few short hours ago, “M3gan”‘s Allison Williams, and Academy Award Nominee Riz Ahmed read out a list of our official nominees, and officially began the race for this year’s best movie.

Put simply: the films that win cinema’s highest honor stay with us, shaping the state of movie-making, and culture writ-large, for years to come. Who among us doesn’t remember when “Coda” fever swept the nation after its historic Best Picture win at last year’s Academy Awards? How many households across the nation have already sat down for their annual rewatch of 2012 Best Picture winner “The Artist” in 2023? By our estimates, millions.

Now, 10 more films are in contention for the top spot, alongside 20 actors vying for various performance awards, five directors jockeying to earn a Best Directing credit, plus screenwriters, set designers, producers, VFX artists, makeup specialists, and a ton of others.

If you missed your opportunity to see a lot of the nominees this year, don’t fret: many of them are streaming already. Below, we’ve rounded up the streaming services (and deals) that are showing Oscar nominated films, performances, and more, including HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, and more.

HBO Max: for “Elvis,” and “Banshees of Inisherin”


Still from "Elvis"

Two of this year’s buzziest movies are streaming for free now with an HBO Max subscription: Baz Luhrmann’s biopic “Elvis,” and Martin McDonaugh’s black comedy “The Banshees of Inisherin.” If you’re into seeing dudes being a little sad, and/or jamming to some oldies, an HBO Max subscription is for you. Plans start at $9.99 a month.



Still from "Everything Everywhere All At Once"

Catch this year’s buzziest movie (and Best Picture frontrunner) “Everything Everywhere All at Once” through Prime Video, with their Showtime Channel add-on, and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. In addition to a Best Picture nom, “EEAAO” earned a whopping ten other nominations, making it the most nominated film of the year, and you can stream it now with a 7 day free trial to the Showtime Channel on Prime Video. Better yet: it only runs you $10.99/month after you trial expires.



Still from "Top Gun: Maverick"

Up until just a few weeks ago, “Top Gun: Maverick” was 2022’s highest grossing movie, (thanks “Avatar”), and for good reason. This high-octane sequel was the perfect summer blockbuster, and makes for a great January movie-night-in. Stream it now through Prime Video with the Paramount+ channel add-on, starting with a 7 day free trial, followed by a $9.99 monthly fee.


Disney+: for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” (Feb. 1)


Still from "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever"

We’re a little early on this, but don’t miss “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the blockbuster sequel to 2018’s “Black Panther” when it hits Disney+ on Feb. 1. One of the highest-grossing movies of 2022, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” earned nods for Angela Basset, for Best Supporting Actress, as well as awards for Best Original Song and Visual Effects. Plus, Disney+ now offers a cheaper, ad-supported model for just $7.99/month.


Netflix: for “All Quiet on the Western Front,” “Pinocchio,” and “Blonde”


Still from "Pinocchio"

Netflix might not have as many Oscar frontrunners in years past, but there’s still a few reasons to tune in to the OG streamer this awards season. Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pinocchio,” for one, leads the race for Best Animated Picture, “Blonde,” which earned a Best Actress nomination for Ana De Armas, and “All Quiet on the Western Front,” which stands at second, tied with “The Banshees of Inisherin” for overall nominations. Plans for Netflix now begin at just $6.99/month.

Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee has proposed establishing a $100 million grant program for pro-life crisis center in his state.

Bill Lee (R-Tenn.) unveiled his plan, stating that his state has a “moral obligation” to support families. Under this plan, Tennessee would transform into “one of the top spending states” on organizations that support pregnant women who are in need of help and resources to keep their babies, rather than making the choice of abortion.

“Pro-life is much more than defending the lives of the unborn,” Lee said. “This is not a matter of politics. This is about human dignity.”

Another part of the plan is to expand “paid parental leave for state employees and widening the Medicaid eligibility for pregnant women and parents.”

“If approved,” the governor explained. “Tennessee will be the first Medicaid program in the nation to implement this kind of support. That’s pro-life. That’s pro-family,”

The governor’s administration also will demand that the federal government pay the cost of diapers for Medicaid recipients for a period of up to two years.

The governor, who is on the advisory board for a crisis pregnancy center, said that his other priorities include teacher pay raise, upgrading the state’s transportation system, and cleaning up toxic waste at industrial sites.

“We can have a healthy debate about the policy specifics, but we can also agree that America is rooted in a commitment to human dignity,” Lee said later on. “There was a significant shift in this country last year when it comes to protecting the lives of the unborn. We now all have an opportunity and a moral obligation to support strong Tennessee families.”

This plan was unveiled during Lee’s annual State of the State address which was held in front of the Republican-led legislature.

The governor touts his state as “a guiding light for opportunity, security & freedom” and laid out his agenda going forward, which was met with protests from the Democrats in the state of Tennessee.

Columbia student from Syria loses nieces, sister-in-law in earthquake

Published

A 28-year-old Syrian student at Columbia University lost his two young nieces and their mom in the devastating earthquake that has claimed at least 11,000 lives in his country and neighboring Turkey.

Hussein Akoush, a student at the Ivy League school in Manhattan since 2021, told The Daily Beast that he was sent into a “panic” when a friend texted him about “massive destruction” in his hometown of Al-Atarib in northwestern Aleppo.

“I saw the magnitude of the earthquake was 7.8. At this point, I realized it was huge,” he told the outlet.

“I had to check in on my family in Syria. So I sent messages to all my sisters and my brother, but none of them received my messages,” said Akoush, who moved to Turkey in 2016 and then to the Big Apple in 2021 to study neuroscience.

He finally heard from his uncle, who said, “‘Don’t worry, we’re fine, your mother and your sister are well,” Akoush told The Daily Beast.

“‘Your brother’s building collapsed but we managed to take him out of the ruins. But we know nothing about his wife and two daughters,’” he said his uncle told him.

Eventually, he learned that his nieces — 6-year-old Sedra and 5-year-old Maria — and their mom Fatima perished in the disaster.

“With a heavy heart and profound grief, I announce the passing away of my two nieces and their mother in last night’s earthquake,” Akoush said on Twitter.

“So, my brother lost his wife and his two daughters,” he told The Daily Beast, adding that his brother has undergone surgery for a broken arm.

“It was a terrible night… I was not able to sleep,” he said.

In a GoFundMe page from 2020, Akoush wrote that “before the Syrian revolution began, I was a hardworking student. I used to be top of my class but I was obliged to drop out of the School of Dentistry at Aleppo University in 2012 for fear of arrest by the Syrian Government due its violent response to the peaceful protests on campus.

“During the war, I dedicated myself to peaceful activism against the brutal dictatorship of Bashar Al Assad, as I watched friends and family members and innocent civilians being ruthlessly killed,” he continued.

Akoush said he learned English, decided to move to Turkey and became a freelance journalist after facing “a litany of death threats and constant bombardment.”

“Fortunately, I was awarded a partial scholarship from Columbia to cover half of the tuition but it is still not enough and that is why I am hoping you will make a donation to help pay for my first year of tuition,” he wrote.

Akoush received $51,426 in donations, surpassing his goal of $50,000.
