Hulu’s initial popularity came from its rebroadcast of network television shows–specifically, those airing on NBC and Fox. Back in the mid-aughts, Hulu was the best way to watch reruns of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Family Guy, 30 Rock, and The Office. There were movies on the service, but they were icing on the cake.
Eventually, as the streaming game got more competitive and fragmented, Hulu had to rely less on its television broadcast partners and more on generating exclusive content. But even so, its original movie offerings have lagged behind its original television offerings. Only in the past two-odd years has Hulu garnered critical acclaim for its films on par with The Handmaid’s Tale or FX’s Devs. And last year, Hulu acquired the exclusive streaming rights for Nomadland streaming debut. That film and its three Oscar wins for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress could be a harbinger of good things to come for the service.
Here are the 10 best Hulu original movies that you can watch right now.
