There is no reason to worry about FOMOM. That’s the phrase Vulture obviously just coined for “fear of missing outstanding movies,” after the nominees were announced this morning for the 91st Academy Awards. Mostly because a bunch of films are already available to stream or rent on various legal websites, which means you don’t have to shell out $19 and illicitly sneak snacks into your perpetually damp Regal Cinemas.
