I just posted a message on our Meetup's message board about the Oscar-nominated films, how to find out if they're playing near you, or streaming or available on DVD. It includes links to Roger Ebert's reviews, if available, and you can even set up notifications, so they'll let you know if a movie you want to see becomes available.
You can read all the information here

* still disappointed that "Safety Not Guaranteed" and "The Intouchables" didn't get nominated for anything!
