On the long night of the 2020 Oscars there was not much space for TV streaming: Netflix, which had collected 24 nominations, brought home only two awards. And not even the most important prizes. A result that certainly left a bitter taste in the mouth of the streaming TV giant who expected to dominate the Oscar night and which, at the same time, did not give much hope to the other entertainment big names that are appearing in the film industry, such as Amazon Prime Video and Apple. TV +.
Compared to the great success of 2019 with the victory of three statuettes for the film "Rome", this year's awards do not seem to be enough.
Netflix won only two statuettes at the Oscars 2020: the award for the best documentary awarded to "American Factory", produced by President Barack Obama and the production company of Michelle Obama, in addition to the recognition for the best supporting actress to Laura Dern for "Marriage Story".
No awards for the two films Netflix has staked a lot on over the past year: The Irishman and The Two Popes.
A result that could be expected: the film majors accepted the participation of the streaming giants, who are upsetting the dynamics of the film industry.
The positive side without a doubt, however, that of attention to Netflix products, which has led to even 24 nominations. Not a small result, but the direct consequence of Netflix's search for quality production, which also counts on talents such as Martin Scorsese.
Between 2018 and 2019 Netflix had tried to define its place in the world of cinema: the streaming TV giant who went from clashes with the Hollywood big names to joining the Motion Picture Association of America, the association that brings together film majors, such as Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros.The decisive step was to change distribution policies, allowing some films and in particular Cuarn's Rome to land first in cinemas and only after a first viewing on the streaming TV platform.
