Oscars 2020 Winners List

Netflix led into the 92nd Oscars with 24 nominations — the most of any studio — expecting to dominate award season’s greatest night the exact same way it’s dominated the entertainment industry. Instead, Netflix walked away with practically zilch.

The streamer made out with just two awards: Best Documentary for American Factory(made by President Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company) and Best Supporting Actress for Laura Dern. Its most significant films — The Irishmanand both Popes — all went home empty-handed.

Oscars 2020 Winners List

Only only a week prior, Netflix’s studio leader Ted Sarandos rebuked asserts that its shortage of awards at previous award shows is part of a”backlash into a tech giant that’s upending entertainment-industry business practices and threatening Hollywood power hierarchies,” as The New York Times wrote.

“A pushback? Nobody can say that with a straight face,” Sarandos said. “We got 24 nominations, the most of any studio. Our films are honored across the board.”

“WE GOT 24 NOMINATIONS, THE MOST OF ANY STUDIO”
Netflix’s Oscar drive has been competitive. Some business competitors have estimated that Netflix spent roughly $70 million on its own Oscars effort — much higher than what most studios pay. Netflix hasn’t shied away from its Oscar ambitions, but the company is trying to boost its film output and become a full-fledged studio in 2020.

Award show prestige is important to the business — particularly when it comes to drawing in the best talent, such as Martin Scorsese. Netflix has proven over the past few years it can secure the nominations, and even win from time-to-time, but getting the large wins are still a struggle. It’s clear that while Netflix moved from the kids’ table to sit with the adults, it is still the odd one out at the moment.

Netflix’s night may not have gone as planned, but Parasitedirector Bong Joon-ho’s did. The manager and his team walked away with a number of important awards, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best International Feature Film, and Best Director. Bong used his time on stage to praise his fellow director nominees, including Martin Scorsese, who received a standing ovation during Bong’s speech. What is he planning on observing his historic win?

“I’m ready to drink tonight,” he joked onstage.

It was a beautiful moment during an otherwise fairly standard show. Not even CEO Bob Iger could conceal his boredom whenever the camera panned to him! Brad Pitt, Taika Waititi, Renée Zellweger, and Dern continued their season of award winnings, taking home respective prizes for Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress. 1917 and Ford v Ferrari both took home multiple awards for attaining excellence in specialized categories like Best Editing and Best Sound Mixing. Elton John won the prize for Best Original Song for his work on Rocketman.

Joker, which earned the most nominations for any individual picture, only secured two awards: Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix and Best Original Score for Hildur Guðnadóttir. Although, depending on who you ask, perhaps it’s not a whole upset after all.
