Availability Of 2016 Oscar-Nominated Films On DVD & Blu-ray

No nominated actors of colour.  For the second consecutive year, movie fans are deeply angered by the lack of diversity in the four acting categories in the just announced nominations for the 88th Academy Awards.  Once again, it’s all about Whitey.

And, of course, there’s also the usual grumbling about snubs.  No Best Documentary Feature nod for The Hunting Ground, Going Clear or Where To Invade Next.  No Best Picture recognition for Star Wars:  The Force Awakens or Straight Outta Compton.  No love at all for Concussion or Beasts Of No Nation.

In the midst of all this annual bemoaning & groaning, why not check out the complete list of nominated feature films below and find out what you can see now at your local cinema & on video, plus what’s coming soon to DVD & Blu-ray in the coming weeks and months.

As always, when new release dates become available, this list will be updated.

The Oscars, hosted for the second time by comedian Chris Rock, will air 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 28.  In the meantime, happy screenings!
