Nomadland: In one of the most atypical editions – not to say the most – that are remembered, caused of course by the pandemic crisis that we continue to experience, last night the 93rd Gala of the 2021 Oscar Awards was held. And if last year we saw the great Surprise to see that Bon Joon-ho Parasites won the award – even more so considering that it is a South Korean film, filmed and spoken in South Korean – we have had another one just as pleasant.
How to watch the 2021 Oscar-winning movie online
And, unfortunately, in 93 years only 2 women have raised the golden statuette, an injustice that is being corrected, although at an extremely slow pace. Because Chloé Zhao, winner of the Oscar for best direction for Nomadland -more than just a winner also with the award for Frances McDormand, the absolute pillar of the film-, has won the award 7 years after the always excellent Kathryn Bigelow raised it. A seven-year gap that we hope will narrow in the following years.
On the other hand, although the pools were betting that Chadwick Boseman would win the Oscar posthumously – his death was so unexpected and has had as much echo as Heath Ledger’s in 2008 -, it has been the veteran Anthony Hopkins, who has been proving his life for a long time. enormous actor that he is, the one who 30 years after his chilling and iconic Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs has once again won the best actor award for his heartbreaking performance in The Father
Now, as often happens with grand prize winning films, Nomadland’s popularity is going to double and it will be re-released in many theaters that quickly removed it. But we are in the age of video on demand services. And both the brand new winner of the Oscar 2021 for the best film as well as the rest of the nominees and winners in other sections can be seen now or very soon without leaving home.
We are going to compile those that are, those that are and those that will be. If you see a title that is not there, such as El Padre, it is that at the moment it can only be seen in theaters and not yet in a VOD service. We start, of course, with Nomadland:

If there’s one thing Hollywood loves, it’s historical re-enactments. And the Mank of the always great David Fincher dares to get inside one of the incunabula: Citizen Kane. Fincher and a gigantic (as always) Gary Oldman recreate Herman Mankiewicz, the scriptwriter of Citizen Kane, on the set of this one. The recreation of the golden age of Hollywood is dazzling, the Black and White of the perfect film – for something it has won the Oscar for best photography – and Fincher can not be given a single

See online Tenet
As adored on the one hand as hated on the other, Christopher Nolan is one of those directors who directly have the rank of ‘Auteur’, because when you see something of his you know that he directed it. Tenet is his latest proposal, an attempt from outside to return to the formula of Origin, but loading more inks in the metaphysical part. And it is that Nolan is not interested so much that we understand the whole plot as that we let ourselves be carried away by it to simply feel more than understand the film. It is better to be dazzled by his technical craftsmanship – winner of the Oscar for best visual effects – than to try to understand the cryptic script of Pe a Pa.
