Celebrate Award Season with Xfinity On Demand #XfinityReviewer

Do you have a favorite season? For most of us television and movie enthusiasts, that’s an easy question to answer – yes, Award Season, and it’s just getting started! I for one enjoy all that the season has to offer, and try to watch as many awards shows as possible. The Golden Globes, and Oscars being real favorites. Part of the fun for me is to watch and rut for my favorites among the nominees. Though being a busy working mom, I don’t always have time to fit in that many trips to the theater. Thankfully this year I have the Xfinity X1 Platform featuring Xfinity On Demand.

The “Oscar Films and More” collection on Xfinity On Demand is their largest Oscar collection yet, with more than 200 previous winners. The collection features this year’s nominees like Boyhood (six nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor), Gone Girl (Best Supporting Actress) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (nine nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director), as well as a collection of past winners such as 12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club, Argo, The Kings Speech, The Hurt Locker and more.


The “2015 Golden Globe Winners” collection features episodes from all the winning TV shows – including Showtime’s freshman hit The Affair (Best Actress in a TV Drama Series) and PBS fan favorite Downton Abbey (Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actress in a Series) – as well as nearly the entire list of Golden Globe nominated series from every category. In addition, Xfinity TV customers can also enjoy all of the already-released winning films such as Boyhood (Best Drama Motion Picture), How to Train Your Dragon 2 (Best Animated Feature Film) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture). For movies that haven’t been released for home viewing yet, such as Birdman (Best Screenplay of a Motion Picture) and The Theory of Everything (Best Original Score), the Xfinity On Demand collection provides trailers and more information on each film.

Xfinity TV customers can find the Oscars collection under the Movies section of Xfinity On Demand; the Golden Globes collection is featured in both the TV and Movies sections. Learn more here.

Thanks to Xfinity On Demand, I’ve recently completed my award season must see list. How about you? Are there still some nominees you’d like to fit in?

  1. No Selma? No American Sniper? Hmmm. But anyway, those are great movies nonetheless. Xfinity really offers great movies!

  2. I haven’t watched that many yet. I still want to see Gone Girl.

      You would’t be disappointed with Gone Girl. Affleck and Rosmund deserves an award for that movie.

    (Celebrate Award Season with Xfinity On Demand #XfinityReviewer) My husband and I just ordered and watch that Gone Girl movie yesterday. Talk about a movie that keeps you guessing, this is sure one of them. You cannot go wrong when watching this good movie-

    The ONLY Oscar nominee I haven’t seen is Birdman, hoping to go treat myself to it this week :). It’s great that Xfinity offers some of them on on-demand! I told my parents they have to see Boyhood.

  5. Anita E says:

    I love Awards season. I’m trying to see all the Best Pics nominations before the big show, and this sounds like it would be an easy way to catch up on some of them.

  6. Amy Orvin says:

    I want to see Gone Girl, too. I have actually been eyeing it on Ebay.

    I don’t make it out to the movies too much and I don’t have cable service. I rent a lot from Red Box. Gone Girl was a good movie though, I just seen it about a month ago at a friends house who does have cable. 🙂

  9. Jackie says:

    The only movie I’ve seen is Gone Girl. I heard Birdman was great and would like to see it.

  10. I liked Boyhood & Gone Girl. I haven’t seen the third movie yet.

  11. Karen Glatt says:

    I have only seen one of the Oscar nominated movies. I need to get busy and watch some of them. I did see Grand Budapest Hotel only because it was on HBO. I want to see Gone Girl. I have to see this movie.

  12. Paul Hoenig says:

    I am behind on my movies. I want to see Gone GIrl, American Sniper and the Best of Me.

  13. mrsshukra says:

    Can’t wait to see Gone Girl on DVD!

  14. Can’t wait!!

  15. Megan m says:

    Can’t wait!

  16. Cynthia R says:

    Getting XFinity is a great deal when you consider how much it is to take a whole family to the movies.

  17. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I really want to see GIrl Gone and Boyhood both of them look really good.

  18. Birdiebee says:

    There are some great movies here. I wish we had Xfinity in our area.
