Haven’t been able to watch the 10 movies up for Best Picture at the 2023 Oscars? Leave the house for the theatre or rent, buy or stream. We highly suggest seeing each and every film if you have the time; a few of the top titles competing in the category include Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Banshees of Inisherin and Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans—favoured in that order.

Here’s how and where you can see the 2023 Best Picture nominees.
