Time is running out for those looking for where to watch the Golden Globe nominees. Yes, the big show is coming up on February 28, so a lot of folks may be scrambling to find out how to watch the Golden Globe nominated films and TV shows, so they have a better chance at winning their respective prediction pools.
The good news is that unlike in previous years, when cinemas were open, you can watch the vast majority of the nominees with some of the best streaming services, which you may already pay for. Of course, some of the most talked about films are only available elsewhere, though. Including one that's on a service you may never heard of.

And at the end of the day, this is great for audiences and films alike. While we wish that the 9 that are on video on demand (where you pay to buy or rent) were on services such as Netflix or Hulu, the fact that so many of these films can be watched from your couch is victory enough.
Also, we're breaking the films down in two ways: quick cheat sheets on where to watch the best picture nominees, and breakdowns of what movies and shows are on the major services.

Golden Globe nominees on Amazon Prime Video
Prime Video's got an interesting set of nominees, including Hunters, a series starring Al Pacino as the leader of a Nazi hunters looking to stop a resurgence in 1977. While Borat 2 got a lot of headlines, Sound of Metal was one of our favorite movies of 2020. It's about a drummer (Riz Ahmed) who loses his hearing, and Ahmed's performance makes this movie a must-see.

Golden Globe nominees on Apple TV Plus
While On The Rocks may be a bit slow, and Wolfwalkers might not be everybody's cup of tea, you need to watch Ted Lasso now. Arguably the best TV show of 2020, it stars Jason Sudeikis as the titular coach, and he better win the best actor award he's nominated for.
