(Pocket-lint) - Another awards season has wrapped up, with the 94th Academy Awards now done and dusted.

It's worth noting the pandemic's continued impact on movies. Due to cinemas being closed for long periods of time across the world, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has begun permitting films, which would have gone to cinemas, to still be eligible even if they debuted exclusively on streaming services. So, several of this year's nominees and winners can be easily viewed with a subscription. In fact, CODA, which was released by Apple TV+, won the award for best picture, becoming the first film distributed by a streaming service to win Hollywood’s top honor.

If you're like us, you'll want to watch CODA and all the other nominees from the comfort of your couch anyway. And with the rise of services like Netflix, Prime, Disney+, and Apple TV+, that's easier than ever.
