Oscar hunt: Where to watch the nominees in the top categories

The Academy Awards often present Capital Region movie-lovers with a problem: Can all the movies in the top categories be seen before the Oscars are handed out?

This year, the Academy Awards will be presented on Sunday, Feb. 24, but some movies nominated in the top six categories — picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor and supporting actress — have come and gone (including “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “Flight”), while one hasn’t screened yet in the region, “Amour,” which opens at the Spectrum 8 Theatre in Albany on Feb. 8.

What follows is a guide to 13 movies, which of the top six categories they’ve been nominated, whether they are still playing in theaters and when they will be available on DVD.

The bad news is, if you haven’t seen “The Master” yet, you won’t be able to until after the Oscars show. It gets released on DVD on Feb 26, two days after the Academy Awards.
