Ahead of the 2013 Academy Awards this weekend, the Wall Street Journal’s Jason Bellini set out to calculate how long it would take someone to actually watch every film nominee before the ceremony. Plus, how much would it cost?

Time to see every Oscar nominated film: 99 hours — just a little over four days.

Cost to see all nine Best Picture nominees this weekend: $60 at AMC.

See Bellini’s calculations in the video below and check out his recommendations for where to watch this year’s films.
