“Oppenheimer” may not be streaming on Peacock until the new year, but “Barbie” is ready to watch from home right this second courtesy of Max. And it’s far from the only great movie in 2023 to find itself available on streaming as the year comes to a close. From Netflix’s Oscar contenders to Hollywood tentpoles such as “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” there’s no shortage of great 2023 titles streaming on Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, Peacock, Max and more platforms.

Arriving to streaming just in time for the final days of 2023 is Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers,” which is now on Peacock after grossing nearly $20 million at the domestic box office this fall. Set in 1970, “The Holdovers” stars Paul Giamatti as Paul Hunham, a curmudgeonly history teacher at an elite boarding school who is tasked with looking after the teens who can’t go home for the holidays. He forms an unexpected bond with a contentious student, Angus Tully (Dominic Sessa), and the school’s kitchen manager Mary (Da’Vine Joy Randolph), who is grieving the loss of her son.

“The Holdovers” is one of the several major Oscar contenders now available to stream. Other buzzy awards players now streaming include Netflix’s “Maestro,” “Rustin” and “May December,” Max’s “Barbie” and Prime Video’s “Saltburn,” among others. For family audiences, 2023 favorites such as “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” and “Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget” are both available on Netflix.
