Where to Watch Oscar-Nominated Film ‘Elvis’ Starring Austin Butler Online
The 2023 Oscar nominations are in, and this year there are 10 films up for best picture — including Elvis, the biographical drama about the life, rise to fame, and death of the King of Rock and Roll. Austin Butler just bagged a BAFTA for his turn as Elvis Presley and you can catch his performance ahead of the Academy Awards on March 12. Written and directed by Baz Luhrmann, Elvis is available to watch at home on HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV.
Austin Butler won his first-ever Golden Globe during this year's 80th annual awards for his portrayal of the rock & roll legend. "He was somebody who was so true to himself. It liberated a lot of people, even just audiences watching him," Butler said of Elvis. "I know that was my experience playing him, it freed me in many ways. I'm very shy, so it forced me to get things out of me."
The film first made a splash in May 2022 at the Cannes Film Festival, where the cast celebrated the world premiere with the real-life Priscilla Presley. Since then, the Presley family has not stopped raving about the film's portrayal of their late relative's life and rise to stardom.
Celebrating Elvis' legacy with a hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Priscilla joined her and Elvis' daughter, Lisa-Marie, and granddaughter, Riley Keough. "It means a lot, absolutely, to my family and the people who knew Elvis really, really well, to be honored in this way," Priscilla told ET, adding that the theater -- then known as the Grauman's Chinese Theatre — was one of the first sights she saw with Elvis when she first came to Los Angeles in 1962. Both Lisa-Marie and Riley echoed Priscilla's enthusiasm, saying Butler deserves an Oscar for his portrayal.
