MJ’s Faves: Catch Up On Oscar-Nominated Films Streaming On Netflix!
With the Academy Awards coming up this Sunday (Feb 26), we’ve got movies on our mind!
Thanks to Netflix – we’re catching up on some of our most favorite Oscar-nominated films — like Tyler Perry‘s “Precious,” starring Gabourey Sidibe and Mo’Nique, and Ang Lee‘s “Brokeback Mountain,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams, and the late Heath Ledger.
But don’t forget the “oldies but goodies” that are now streaming on Netflix, like “An Affair to Remember,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Annie,” and more. These films will be sure to get you excited for the glitz and glamour of Movie’s Biggest Night.
And if you’re as big of a fan of Meryl Streep as MJ is — you can have a “Meryl Marathon!” Despite being one of the most critically acclaimed actors today, it has been 29 years since her last Oscar win — believe it or not! Her current nod for “The Iron Lady” (for which she won a Golden Globe for Best Actress) may change that — and makes her the most nominated actress to date with 17 total nominations. Wowza! Don’t forget to refresh your “Meryl Memory” by watching “Kramer vs Kramer” (also streaming on Netflix) for which she won her first Oscar.
And with that, MJ has got enough in his “Instant Queue” to keep him busy until Oscar Sunday! What do you have on your “must watch” movie list?
