Library Corner: Academy Award winners on DVD at your local library

Jeanie Johnson
Grand County Library District

Are there some Academy Award winning films that you would like to see, but have not been able to get to a movie theater on the right date? If that is the case, your library has a deal for you.

We thought it might be helpful to give a list for our customers who enjoy borrowing and watching these films. All of the Academy Awards best picture nominees are available through the Grand County Library District.

“The Shape of Water” had 12 nominations and won four Academy Awards, including best picture and best director.

“Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” received several nominations including best picture and won best actress for Frances McDormand.

“Darkest Hour” received several nominations including best picture and won best actor for Gary Oldman.

“Phantom Thread” received several nominations including best picture, best director and best actor.

“Call Me by Your Name” received four nominations, including best picture and best actor.

“Lady Bird” had five nominations including best picture, best director, best actress and best supporting actress.

“Get Out” was nominated for four awards including best picture, best actor and best director.

“The Post” received nominations for best picture and best actress for Meryl Streep.

“Dunkirk” received several nominations including best picture and best director.

We have many movies from other Academy Award categories, but I will leave those for another day. When you are eager to see a good movie, go to your local library or, better yet, think ahead and reserve it by placing a hold at http://www.gcld.org. I think I smell popcorn—do you? Happy viewing!
