As we bask in the post-Oscar glow of The Hurt Locker winning its bounty of Academy Awards and shutting out the overblown Avatar in most of its categories, perhaps now you’re interested in actually seeing the films that won these trophies. Fortunately, you can check out that Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing winner right now on Comcast On Demand – and that’s not all.

There are other Oscar-winners you can dial up through Comcast as we speak, too. For instance, you can watch Christoph Waltz be the Best Supporting Actor in his amazing performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, or you can see why The Cove won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, and also why there was controversy in the press room between the filmmakers and the Japanese press. You can check out the emotionally touching of Up, which won Best Animated Feature as well as Best Original Score, or you can appreciate Star Trek on a new level now that the crew has won the Best Makeup award. If you can wait until tomorrow, you can go on a powerful emotional journey by watching Best Adapted Screenplay winner Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire and seeing not only why there was never any question that Mo’Nique would win her Best Supporting Actress award, but also why Gabourey Sidibe probably should have bested Sandra Bullock for Best Actress. Speaking of Sandy, you can also check out her history-making performance in All About Steve as well, which helped her become the first actress to ever win Worst Actress at the Razzies and Best Actress at the Oscars in the same weekend.


Then there are the other Oscar nominees who didn’t manage to pull out victories last night, but are still definitely worthy of watching. There’s Meryl Streep’s amazing performance as Julia Child in Julie & Julia, as well as the mind-blowing Best Documentary nominee Food, Inc. and two more Best Picture nominees with the innovative science fiction film District 9 and A Serious Man, the latest quirky effort from master filmmakers Joel & Ethan Coen. Of course, there are also the technical award nominees, including Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, which was nominated for Best Cinematography, and Razzie Award winner Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which was up for Best Sound Mixing.

All of these movies are available on Comcast On Demand right now. Order up!
