'The King's Speech'

The 86th Academy Award nominations won't be announced until January 16th, 2014. Sure, that sounds like a long time from now, but the Oscar season movies are beginning to roll out, whetting our appetites for nominee speculations. That being said, most of the likely candidates for best picture won't be flooding theaters until the fall. That leaves the upcoming months open to catching up on past Oscar-winning films you may have missed (or ones you want to revisit).

Here are eleven best picture winning films now available for your viewing pleasure on Netflix:

1. Gentleman's Agreement (1947) - Elia Kazan 

2. Midnight Cowboy (1969) - John Schlesinger
