    Netflix’s current record for most Oscars won in a single year is 4 (in 2018). It has won 8 in total from 2017-2020.

    This year, it’s looking likely that the single year record will be broken, but I’m most curious to see whether it will double its overall wins at the same time.

    To me, these wins feel <i>achievable</i> in 2021:

    Actor: Chadwick Boseman, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

    Actress: Viola Davis, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

    Costume Design: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

    Make-up and Hairstyling: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

    Production Design: Mank

    Original Song: Husavik, Eurovision Song Contest or Io Si, The Life Ahead (but the former is much more likely)

    Documentary Feature: My Octopus Teacher

    Animated Short: If Anything Happens I Love You

    Documentary Short: A Love Song for Latasha

    Live-Action Short: Two Distant Strangers

    Visual Effects: The Midnight Sky

     

    I’m not going to predict all of these films to win, but it would be amazing to see a streaming service win even 6 or 8 of the Oscars given out in a single year. It would certainly make it harder to argue that the Academy has an anti-Netflix bias.

    Does anyone else feel like this would be a milestone? How many wins are people predicting for Netflix titles? Are there any other possible wins that I’ve missed?

    I predict 1 category that people actually pay attention to (lead actor), like in previous years.

    I think it’s going to get the shorts + costumes, make-up, production design and documentary.

    It might win for Viola(or who knows maybe Vanessa) or Chadwick too, but I don’t have them predicted.

    I think Chadwick and My Octopus Teacher will

    win as will Ma Rainey for costumes and makeup.
    I have Viola in second for actress.

    Mank missing out in original screenplay is a huge blow to the egos of Netflix and David Fincher.

    That’s 7 Oscars for Netflix tonight!

    2 for Mank

    2 for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

    1 each for My Octopus Teacher, If Anything Happens I Love You, and Two Distant Strangers

    They really smashed the record even though none of categories were particularly high-profile. 15 wins in total now.

    Also, by my count Amazon picks up its first two awards since the 89th Oscars. It now has 5 in total.

    I wonder if we’ll see this kind of streaming dominance again.
