It’s that time of year again! All the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are busy watching and judging this year’s Oscar-nominated films and performances. Most films considered serious Oscar contenders are released between October and December of the preceding year, presumably so they’ll be fresh in everyone’s minds when nominees are being whittled down.

Because of this, a lot of films haven’t made it to DVD yet, so everything we want to purchase for our media collection is out of our reach, for the time being at least. Still, we’re celebrating the movie industry’s biggest night with our own Oscar’s contest. AU community members can fill out their own ballots here, and watch the nominated films in our collection between now and February 24th. Whoever predicts the most winners will win a 3D printed Oscar statuette from the AU Library’s Makerspace!

Here’s a list of current nominees in our collection:

  • A Quiet Place (DVD 16021)
  • Black Panther (DVD 16090)
  • First Reformed (DVD 16162)
  • Isle of the Dogs (DVD 16077)
  • RBG (DVD 16120)

And if those aren’t enough for you, take a look at some of the past nominees and winners in our collection, including:
