The nominees for the Oscar are:

  • Extremis
  • 4.1 Miles
  • Joe's Violin
  • Watani: My Homeland
  • The White Helmets

You can watch 4.1 Miles and Joe's Violin above in their entirety. Extremis and The White Helmets are on Netflix. So at least four of these films are viewable online. Does anyone know if Watani: My Homeland is available anywhere?
