Well, JOE has compiled the information on where you can watch this year's Best Picture nominees right here.

On top of this, we've also got you covered with a list of the best films airing on TV this Tuesday evening (24 January).

The Exorcist III - Legend - 9pm

Our pick for tonight is this Exorcist sequel directed by William Peter Blatty who wrote the novel on which the original movie was based.

It makes the supporting character in The Exorcist of Lieutenant William F. Kinderman (here played by George C. Scott) the lead focus as he investigates a series of gruesome murders.

It turns out the crimes are linked to both a previously executed criminal dubbed The Gemini Killer (Brad Dourif) and the demon Pazazu that tormented Regan in the first film.

Completely ignoring the events of the critically panned Exorcist II: The Heretic, Blatty manages to retain the surrealistic horror of the original, as well as its theological exploration of good and evil.

This is as he adds a murder mystery and a dash of black humour to proceedings, alongside two titanic performances from Dourif and Scott.
