Availability Of 2014 Oscar-Nominated Films On DVD & Blu-ray

The secret’s out.  The nominees for the 86th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning and the only question that matters is this:  how many of the nominated films are available on home video?

I’m glad you asked.  What follows is the complete list of this year’s Oscar-nominated feature films in alphabetical order.  Beside each title is either an upcoming home video release date, an upcoming theatrical release date or the much happier revelation that you can see that particular film right now either on DVD & Blu-ray or at your local cinema.  As always, when more information becomes available, I’ll update the list with the latest home video & theatrical release dates where appropriate.

In the meantime, happy screenings!  The winners will be announced on Sunday, March 2.

UPDATE:  Amazon has changed the home video release date for American Hustle.  Originally, it was scheduled to come out on March 1, the day before the Oscar ceremony.  Now it will be available on March 18.  (In retrospect, I probably should have been a bit more skeptical of that first date which now sounds like it was a mistake.  After all, how many movies are issued on disc on a Saturday?)  Also, Inside Llewyn Davis has been pencilled in for a March 11 DVD/Blu-ray release.  However, like American Hustle, you can still see it in theatres for the time being.  Both changes have been made to the original list.

UPDATE 2:  Saving Mr. Banks is coming to video March 18.  For the time being, you can still catch it in theatres.  The change has been added to the original list.

UPDATE 3:  Leonardo DiCaprio’s fifth collaboration with Martin Scorsese, The Wolf Of Wall Street, is coming to DVD & Blu-ray March 25.  In the meantime, you can still see it in theatres.  The home video release date has been added to the list.

UPDATE 4:  The Motion Picture Academy has disqualified Alone Yet Not Alone for Best Original Song so it has been crossed off the list.  However, if you still want to see it, look for it in theatres June 13.

UPDATE 5:  August: Osage County is coming to DVD & Blu-ray April 8 but for the time being you can still see it in theatres.  Philomena’s release date has been pushed back from March 4 to April 15.  These changes have been added to the list.

UPDATE 6:  Forget what I said about Philomena.  It actually is coming out on March 4.  Stupid Amazon.

UPDATE 7:  Although no home video release date has been scheduled for The Square just yet, it’s been available on Netflix since January 17, almost a full month as of this writing.  My apologies for not realizing this as quickly as I should have.  I’m an old school DVD guy so this was completely off my radar.  This belated revelation has been added to the list.

UPDATE 10:  Philomena’s home video release date has been changed yet again.  According to Amazon, it will be available April 15 after all, as previously noted back in late January.  (For a time, it looked like it was coming out March 4, the same day as 12 Years A Slave.)  Here’s hoping there are no further changes from here on out.  The correct date has been added to the list.
