I am really confused. I saw a list of all the Netflix films, like ARQ and the Siege of Jadotville, and I wondered which at the Emmys. Out of the eligible films, which ones have a chance to be nominated for best TV movie. Will Netflix take HBO’s place as the main channel in the TV movie category?November 27, 2016 at 9:51 am #1201957333
If it isn’t released in theaters (A Very Murray Christmas) and only on streaming its eligible at the Emmys. But if it has a small limited release (Beast of No Nations) it’s eligible for an Oscar.

Netflix now has a bunch of movies, but it doesn’t seem like they’re even trying to compete in TV movie category.November 27, 2016 at 10:26 am #1201957342
They pretty much all are, but Netflix is very selective about campaigning. Take a look at last year:
Campaigned for Oscars: Beasts of No Nation
Campaigned for Emmys: A Very Murray Christmas, Special Correspondents
Campaigned for neither: The Ridiculous 6, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, The Do-Over, maybe Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny
My guess for this year is that only David Brent: Life on the Road of the confirmed Emmy-eligible releases gets a campaign. Looks like they are not campaigning any English-language, live-action fiction for Oscars this year. I think that all of the indies that Netflix picked up and released so far will get no campaign. We could see something pop up in the spring.March 25, 2017 at 11:11 pm #1202046308
Do we have any new info? I am confused because Anne is in the prediction center for TV movie but the advertising says series. Also, will the sense8 Christmas special be submitted in movie? It feels so dumb because I feel like Netflix could own this category if they wanted to. But it doesn’t try. Do they just not care about TV movie?March 25, 2017 at 11:39 pm #1202046315
Anne of Green Gables (the PBS movie) is in the predictions centre; Anne (the Netflix drama) is not. They are different adaptations of the same source material.March 26, 2017 at 8:09 am #1202046583
Tallulah, The Siege of Jadotville, Mascots, and Barry were all listed as eligible for the 89th Oscars. I have trouble figuring out all of the rules, so I’m not sure if that means that they are ineligible for Emmy consideration. I think that The Most Hated Woman in America, Win It All, and Sandy Wexler could all be contenders, especially considering the extremely weak field of TV Movie contenders. But I guess we’ll just have to wait until the ballot is released (or until this FYC site is updated) to know precisely what Netflix is choosing to submit for consideration.March 26, 2017 at 12:22 pm #1202046850
Sense8: A Christmas Special deserves to snatch a lot of tech nominations, but Netflix will probably fuck this one up.March 26, 2017 at 8:07 pm #1202047064
Netflix submitted the Marco Polo special as a movie, so I bet that they submit the Sense8 special as such.June 13, 2017 at 11:35 am #1202119812
Netflix submitted Easy: Art and Life, The most hated Woman in America, and Black Mirror: San Junipero, David Brent, Life on the Road. Michael Bolton’s Valentine’s day special was submitted in variety. I believe that Senese8: A Christmas Special was not submitted in TV movie, but I am not positive about that.
