When most people think of Oscar-nominated films, they tend to only recall the prestige films nominated for Best Picture. This year, that includes movies like Lady Bird, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, and Call Me by Your Name. But those aren't the only films the Academy will be honoring on March 4. Nearly 60 films have been nominated for Oscars this year, thanks to various categories that include short films, foreign films, animated movies, and technical achievements, and you can watch a good chunk of these Oscar-nominated movies on Netflix right now.

Although none of the Best Picture nominees are on Netflix at the moment, there are 10 other Oscar hopefuls that are currently streaming. These films come from a diverse range of genres and awards categories, from Netflix original documentaries to big budget Disney special effects extravaganzas to foreign art films. Out of the ten, four are documentaries, and three of those docs are Netflix originals, showing the company's commitment to the format. Of the six non-documentary films that are currently streaming, one is a Netflix original drama, two are Disney blockbusters, one is an animated feature from Dreamworks Animation, another is an animated short from the United Kingdom, and the last is a Hungarian drama. As you can see, it's quite the variety, so take a look below to find out what these ten films are all about, as well as which Oscars they'll be hoping to take home at the 2018 Academy Awards.
