Invest In The Gold

While Netflix isn’t the home studio to the flick with the most nomination, that honor belongs to Warner Brothers’ Joker, they can crow about being blessed with two of their movies getting spots on the Best Picture list. The Irishman and Marriage Story will compete for the top award on Oscar night.

Star Gold

With the exception of Robert De Niro, all of the main actors in a Netflix film were nominated for Oscars. Marriage Story’s Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver are enjoying their latest nominations. Driver is considered a front runner for the Best Actor category, while Johansson is a dark horse for Best Actress. While Renee Zellweger is considered the front runner for Best Actress, Johansson has a lot of goodwill coming off of Avengers: Endgame and Marriage Story.

Disney Denied Gold

It is a given that almost any animated movie that Disney puts out, they will score a nomination for Best Animated Feature. This rule becomes golden when the movie is from a beloved brand like Frozen. That is why experts are scratching their heads at Frozen II not making the list of nominees but Netflix having two contenders, including Klaus.
