Sian Heder's lovingly crafted family drama became the first Sundance film — and the first streaming release — to win the Best Picture statue. That's definitely something to sing about.
Where to stream: CODA is currently streaming on Apple TV+.
Chloé Zhao won her first Oscar — the second female filmmaker to take home the Best Director statue — and Frances McDormand won her third for this compelling portrait of a contemporary nomad. While the film's Big Sky backdrops cry out for the big screen, McDormand's lived-in performance packs a punch whether you're in a theater or you're living room.
Where to stream:Nomadland is currently streaming on Hulu.
After 92 years, a foreign-language film finally took home the Best Picture statue, and the Academy couldn’t have picked a better movie to make history than Bong Joon-ho’s gripping social satire. As cleverly constructed as any Coen Brothers yarn, and as superbly orchestrated as any Steven Spielberg thrill ride, Parasite is a film that can and will speak to audiences around the world for years to come.
Where to stream: Parasite is currently streaming on Hulu.
2018: Green Book
Viggo Mortensen drives Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali through the Deep South in the early ’60s and learns to become a better person along the way.

Where to stream: Green Book is currently available to rent or purchase on Apple TV and Vudu.
2017: The Shape of Water
Guillermo del Toro’s lovingly crafted creature feature goes all-in on its unlikely romance between a woman and a fish god (Sally Hawkins and Doug Jones). It’s The Creature From the Black Lagoon by way of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and just as swoon-inducing as that sounds.
Where to stream: The Shape of Water is currently streaming on Hulu.
Even after the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding Moonlight‘s Best Picture win fades from memory, Barry Jenkins's vividly-realized coming of age story will rank among the most important — and very best — films to take home that statue.

The heir to All the President’s Men scoops up the award its predecessor missed out on. Come for the A-list cast, stay for the thrill of what classic shoe-leather reporting looks like.
Where to stream: Spotlight is currently streaming on HBO Max.
Sure Black Panther is the first comic book movie based on a pre-existing superhero to score a Best Picture nod. But Alejandro González Iñárritu’s eccentric treatise on art and commerce is technically the first superhero movie to win the top prize… with a former Batman as its star, no less.
Where to stream: Birdman is currently available to rent or purchase on Prime Video.
2013: 12 Years a Slave
Steve McQueen’s brutal, harrowing dramatization of former slave Solomon Northup’s experience in the pre-Civil War Deep South remains painful, but necessary viewing.
Where to stream: 12 Years a Slave is currently streaming on HBO Max.
Ben Affleck’s political thriller plays fast and loose with the history of the Iran Hostage Crisis, but that third act airport escape is genuinely edge-of-your-seat fare.
Where to stream: Argo is currently available to rent or purchase on Prime Video.
2011: The Artist
Eight decades separate the only two silent films to win Best Picture. Technically, The Artist has one spoken word, but that doesn’t detract from Michel Hazanavicius’s careful recreation of a vanished Hollywood or Jean Dujardin’s Oscar-winning performance.
Where to stream: The Artist is currently streaming on HBO Max.
2010: The King’s Speech
Let’s be honest: The Social Network probably should have won this year. But The King’s Speech does feature a career-apex star turn by Colin Firth, and has more dramatic meat than your typical prestige period picture.
Where to stream: The King’s Speech is currently streaming on PlutoTV.
