Every Oscar-Nominated Movie You Can Catch In Cinemas Before February 10th

Murder mysteries, network scandals and... Hitler?

It is widely known (or should be) that the most fun opinions to have are low-stakes ones – opinions on outcomes that don’t affect you, and that, in the grand scheme of things, probably won’t make any kind of difference whatsoever. In short, opinions on things that are really none of our business. Real aunty shit.

And what affects us less than award shows? The 1% thriving, eating plant-based finger food and talking to fancy people. Can’t relate, but that’s not going to stop us from having very strong opinions about which white person deserves which award.

And what a range of white people the Oscars – held this year on the 10th of February – have given us to choose from! And as easy as it is to decide who should win based on how much you liked their movie trailer, it will probably be a little bit more self-respectful and a lot more adult of you to just watch the movie in its entirety. Plus, with streaming services like Netflix coming in hot with a number of critically-acclaimed Oscar contenders (namely The Irishman, Marriage Story and The Two Popes), movies premiering in cinemas may soon become an anomaly — which is why you should capitalise on the promise of popcorn, unnecessarily powerful air conditioning, and a random assortment of movie trailers before they’re all gone.

Below is a list of every Oscar nominated movie now showing in cinemas in Colombo, and why you should go see them.
