Amazing Oscar-Winning Movies To Stream On Netflix
The freakin' weekend isn't always about partying your face off. Sometimes it's about relaxing your face off with some of the Oscar-winning movies that are streaming on Netfix. You know what I'm talking about — those glorious days off filled with little more than sloth, sweatpants, and solo streaming (or streaming with people. I don't judge.) But even though it's not a time for productivity, you still kind of have to have a plan, because without a plan, you stand a real chance of getting lost in the void of too many choices. Nobody wants to spend more time picking out a movie than actually watching it. Those angsty feels are strong enough to sour the entire box of wine you have propped up next to your bed.
Enter the helping hand of the Bustle list. We got your back. This time we're here to help you narrow things down to the cream of the crop. Well, the cream of the crop according to The Academy. We're talking Oscar winners. And even though the Oscars have this annoying habit of being a white man's game, there are still some enjoyable (even if they're lacking in diversity, boo) titles to be found. These particular titles are films that didn't just get a nod, but that took home some bling.
