The 2020 Oscar nominations arrived earlier this morning, and it's a big year for Netflix and fans of The Joker. In addition to Academy Award nominations for The Irishman and Marriage Story, Bong Joon Ho's beloved Parasite also racked up a solid stack of nominations. 

You can even stream one of these picks on Disney Plus: Kitbull, a Pixar short film, got a nomination in the animated short film category. Most of these films are still in theaters now, though, so you might have to buy a ticket (or buy a digital VOD or rental) to see them before the awards show on February 9. 

Here's the full list of every Oscar-nominated film.

Which Oscar Nominated films are streaming online?

The Irishman (Netflix)
Marriage Story (Netflix)
The Two Popes (Netflix)
Kitbull (Disney Plus)
Joker (rent or buy digitally)
Once upon a Hollywood (rent or buy digitally)
