The Academy Awards take place on 25 April 2021.
As we edge ever closer to the ceremony, let’s take a look at all of this year's nominees for the Best Documentary Oscar... and where you can watch them.
What is your favourite? This is such a brilliantly competitive category. I love all of these films. If I had to pick a winner myself, it would be Collective (particularly as Dick Johnson Is Dead is - somehow - not on this list).
However, all of these docs are well worth your time!
Collective is a gripping, real-time docu-thriller that follows a heroic team of journalists as they expose shocking corruption in the Romanian national health-care system. Collective is also nominated for Best International Feature Film (Romania).
