iTunes Launches $20 'Award Winning' Movie Bundles Ahead of 90th Academy Awards

Following a discount on bundles for movies in the Cloverfield and Mission: Impossible franchises earlier this week, Apple on iTunes has now launched a collection of "Award Winning" film bundles focused on categories from the Academy Awards. The sale is debuting just under one month before the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4.

The categories include Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Picture, and vary from time periods like Classic to Contemporary. Each HD bundle is priced at $19.99, allowing those interested to grab four movies for the price of about two.

There are also a few "Under $10" Oscar film categories lined throughout the iTunes Movies store, broken into sections including "Best Original Screenplay" and "Best Adapted Screenplay." In the list below you'll find all of the Award Winning bundles, a few films from the Under $10 categories, and some other recent releases on iTunes that received notable discounts this week.

For more of the Oscars-related discounts on iTunes, you should be able to find the Award Winning bundles and Under $10 films featured heavily in the storefront's rotating carousel and just below the New and Noteworthy section, respectively.

If you don't yet have the Apple TV 4K to watch 4K iTunes movies on, don't forget that DirecTV Now's sale on the device remains ongoing in 2018 after initially launching last November. With the offer, when you sign up for four months of the streaming TV service at an upfront cost of around $140, you'll get the 32GB Apple TV 4K at no cost.

Yeah I've never quite understood why people own collections of movies. Do people really watch that many different films more than once? There's SO much stuff I haven't seen, I always feel like I should see something new to me. Maybe it's just the satisfaction of doing the actual collecting, itself. But then, it just seems like blowing money. Is there somebody out there who watches Argo every couple years?

This is actually the first bundle from Apple that has gotten me interested. I like all the dramas listed and would definitely watch them more than once. I like the musicals and classic Best Actor choices. Four movies for $20 is a good deal.

What I'd like to see is a big bundle of films in a pot with some offers to "pick 4" to maybe "pick 10," much like we all probably get these software offers to pick up to 10 apps from this group of 50 for this special price.

Each of these bundles that have some movies in which I'm interested happens to have at least one film I already have. If we could mix & match, even from this group, I could find a bundle of 4-10 that I'd be more inclined to buy. However pricing must be very good to help make the DRM and lock-in tolerable. The consumer reality is that a lot of these movies are relatively old and one can probably shop used disc bins and/or eBay to get higher quality versions for less money, then rip them into iTunes format.

Yes, there's hassle to that vs. the convenience of "just buy the iTunes version" but it also lets you choose the quality and breaks the "lock in" to any one source. It also gives you a tangible backup and a much higher quality audio track option too. It's highly unlikely a Studio will show up at my home and just take the movie from my "ownership" but do a search for "iTunes movies disappearing" and rethink all the "trust the cloud" spin (and then download your iTunes purchases and get them on a backup drive).

Yes, I know that none of us can spare any space for 5.25" discs that might be 2-4mm thick each, etc., so clearly that's a mainstream problem to the alternative way I favor. Yes, I know that "discs are the past and streaming is the future." Yes, I know about kids with jelly on their hands too (but I'm not suggesting playing the discs).
