20 Oscar-winning movies available on Amazon Prime Video

The stars of the 2017 Oscars are making their way to Amazon Prime Video this September - but there's plenty more already on there



Inexplicably beaten to the best picture gong in 1991 by Dances With Wolves, Martin Scorsese’s gangster classic saw some compensation with Joe Pesci taking home the supporting actor award for his role as a funny guy. Watch on Amazon


Pulp Fiction

Quentin Tarantino spins a fine yarn of interweaving crime narratives in Los Angeles, bagging a best adapted screenplay Oscar in the process. Featuring plenty of iconic performances from Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman and John Travolta. Watch on Amazon

The Aviator

The first of Leo’s many dead-end nominations before his triumphant success for the Revenant in 2016. His colleagues, however, were rewarded handsomely for their part in Martin Scorsese’s biopic of aviation pioneer and filmmaker Howard Hughes. The film nabbed five statues in 2005, including Cate Blanchett for best supporting actress and best cinematography. Watch on Amazon

No Country For Old Men

The Coen Brothers’ neo-noir western swept the board in 2008, winning best picture, best director and best adapted screenplay. There was also a best supporting actor win for Javier Bardem’s chilling performance as hitman Anton Chigurh. Watch on Amazon


Manchester By The Sea

Kenneth Lonergan’s melancholic masterpiece was awarded best original screenplay earlier this year, while Casey Affleck took home the best actor statue for his moving performance as a lowly Bostonian haunted by a trauma in his past. The film finds Affleck in isolation, reluctant to re-immerse himself in society when his brother dies, leaving a teenage son in his care.
Available on Amazon Prime Video from 15th September
