    Oscar Noms Are Out, But How Do You See Them?

    DFW theaters had limited runs of some Oscar nominees, but there's still a chance to catch some of the big ones.

    For the last few years, AMC Theatres has offered the Best Picture Showcase to movie fans. The showcase screens the five Best Picture nominees ("Frost/Nixon," "Milk," "The Reader," "Slumdog Millionaire," and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" are this year's list) back to back on one day.

    Best of all, you get to see all those nominated films, snag a free large popcorn (with free refills all day) for only $30 per person (and only $25 if you're a MovieWatcher member).

    Tickets go on sale Friday, January 30, but AMC has not yet announced the screening date or participating locations.

    With those five under your belt, you can move on to the short films nominated by the Academy.

    The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will show the nominees for Best Animated Short and Best Live Action Short from February 27 to March 1. Plus, they'll screen the Oscar nominated "Waltz With Bashir" from January 30 to February 1. For more info on screening times and tickets, click here.

    Many of the nominees are available on DVD, including Heath Ledger's Joker in "The Dark Knight," animated features "Wall-E" and "Kung Fu Panda," Angelina Jolie's performance in "Changeling," and original screenplay nominee "In Bruges.'
