Oscars 2021, Netflix can win it all

With Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7 as big favorites, Netflix can break records and win multiple statues at the 2021 Oscars.

Netflix has invested in prestigious filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, Alfonso Cuarón and David Fincher …
Fincher is the director of Mank, his new film. Fincher also directed Seven and Zodiac is named, by the first critic, as a favorite of the next Oscars with the film Mank .

Netflix has increased its presence at the Oscars. in 2020 the platform had 24 nominations.

And in 2021, the streaming giant is expected to break new records for nominations including best film.

The current record is held by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which won five ninth Oscar nominations in 1937: The Great Ziegfeld – a fictional tribute to Broadway legend Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. – went on to receive the award main.

That was when the Academy was nominating 10 films in the Best Picture category – now there are usually eight or nine nominees in this category.

Netflix was left out in the past, with Roma by Alfonso Cuarón and The Irishman by Martin Scorsese losing the Best Picture award in 2018-2019. But 2021 may be the year that she has a great chance of win.

Variety predicts that David Fincher’s Mank and Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 are in a safe position to make the cut, with Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (featuring the latest presentation of Chadwick Boseman before his death) also having a good chance.

The publication also believes that George Clooney’s next film, The Midnight Sky , has a chance, which would mean that the streamer would only need one more nomination to tie with the previous record of MGM and another to beat him. Chances are that this film is Da 5 Bloods , which has received positive reviews in all areas.

With cinemas closed all over the world, space has opened up for the streaming platforms to dominate the next season of awards.
