If you plan on watching all of the Oscar-nominated films before Academy Awards night, there's a new opportunity that could earn you some cash while doing so.

TestCasinos.com is looking for a "film aficionado" to watch the 10 best picture nominees then rate the films and predict the winners. In return, the chosen candidate will receive $2,000 cash, a 65-inch 4K TV and a $500 DoorDash gift card to order meals while watching the films.

The winner will be asked to watch and score the films on a scale of 1 to 10 for the following criteria: emotional resonance, entertainment impact, memorability meter, creativity quotient and social buzz score.

The candidate will also need to answer questions like, "How entertaining and engaging was the movie?" and "Did it stand out from the typical movies, and was the concept innovative?"

Along with rating and predicting the best picture winner, you'll also be asked to predict who will win best director, best actor, best actress, best supporting actor and best supporting actress.

The chosen person will be responsible for finding a way to watch the films, though, so they'll likely need to have multiple streaming services or be prepared to rent the films.

If you think you've got what it takes, you'll need to submit your application by March 3. If chosen, you will need to watch the following 10 films and complete the rest of the assignment before the Oscars air on March 10:

    - "American Fiction"

    - "Anatomy Of A Fall"

    - "Barbie" 

    - "The Holdovers"

    - "Killers Of The Flower Moon"

    - "Maestro"

    - "Oppenheimer"

    - "Past Lives"

    - "Poor Things"

    - "The Zone Of Interest"
