    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?

    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.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson 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.

    Whoop diddy scoop!

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Sense8: A Christmas Special deserves to snatch a lot of tech nominations, but Netflix will probably fuck this one up.

    Netflix submitted the Marco Polo special as a movie, so I bet that they submit the Sense8 special as such.

    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.
