Where to watch 2011 Oscar winners and nominees on TV

So, you say you never got around to seeing 2011 Best Picture Oscar winner The Artist in theaters? Or you passed on Hugo (pictured), but seeing it take home all those technical awards at the Oscars last night now has you intrigued? Or you live in an area where the Oscar-nominated documentaries never screened? Well, if you still want to catch some of these titles and can’t see them in theaters, you’re in luck, because a number of films that took home Oscar gold last night — or were at least nominated — are available for viewing right now, or will be in the next month or two, right in your own living room. Here’s where to tune in; check back for updates. Note: For Video on Demand services, please check with your cable provider for more details on availability, channel information, etc.
