How to Watch Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-Nominated 'West Side Story' at Home
The Oscar-nominated musical West Side Story is now available to stream at home. Steven Spielberg managed (rather unsurprisingly) to breathe new life into a beloved classic with his extravagant retelling of the cult-favorite musical, West Side Story — which depicts a beautifully tragic tale of rivalry and forbidden love that unravels on the streets of Manhattan's Upper West Side. Anyone who missed it on the big screen can choose between Disney Plus or HBO Max and have a front row seat to Tony and Maria's love story from where you are now.
All subscribers to Disney Plus and HBO Max can stream 'West Side Story' at no additional cost.
West Side Story proved — much like its predecessor — to be a hit among Academy members, with Spielberg's vibrant remake racking up a total of 7 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. The original 1961 film still reigns as one of the most lauded cinematic musicals in history, having won 10 Oscars at the 34th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in 1962, including a golden statue for Rita Moreno in her role as Anita.
With an all-star cast that sees Rachel Zegler as María, Ansel Elgort as Tony, Ariana DeBose as Anita (which DeBose earned a Best Supporting Actress nod for) and David Alvarez as Bernardo, among so many others, West Side Story really is one of the year's can't-miss films — and a huge contender for some of the top prizes at the 2022 Academy Awards, too.
