How to watch every Best Picture Oscar winner streaming online

When “Wings” was awarded Best Picture at the first Academy Awards ceremony, it’s doubtful anyone could have imagined how technology would radically alter the way people watched movies. But here in the present day, it has never been easier to watch the Oscars Best Picture winners online, either past or present. Last year, Chloe Zhao and Frances McDormand’s “Nomadland” led the 2021 Oscars with three wins, including Best Picture and Best Actress for McDormand, coasting to a victory that felt ordained for months. It was available to stream on Hulu and remains there to this day.

This year, a number of Best Picture nominees are already streaming — including Netflix favorite “The Power of the Dog,” which is expected to win Best Picture at the 2022 Oscars. But before the ceremony on March 27, why not travel back through film history to watch every Best Picture winner online. Thanks to streaming services and digital rental platforms, it has never been easier to see everything from “Wings” to “Nomadland.”
