“New year, new life”, as a person I appreciate would say. This not only means the end of a year that will be forgotten, but also the beginning and celebration of great events. One of them is the Oscars 2021 since, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, streaming platforms were the ones that benefited the most from the production of feature films. Because of this, it is not surprising for anyone that Netflix is at the head with several titles that will give something to talk about during the great awards ceremony.
Bear in mind that this is not the first time Netflix has played at the Oscars. At the time, he knew how to touch the glory with Roma (2018), A Marriage Story (2019), and The Irishman (2019), but all of this – barely – was a taste of the plans that the streaming platform has. It’s simple, the goal is to dominate the feature film industry with creativity and original productions, as well as to show that streaming is the future of cinema.
Netflix is here to stay and break with all the paradigms already established in the world of entertainment. The person who believes that cinema is just recording scenes and then bringing them to the big screen for a crowd is watching only a fragment of the picture. The presentation of art can be done in any way and any format. The advantage that Netflix has is that its reach has no limits thanks to streaming, and that is worth gold in this area. Directors like Martin Scorsese realized this and joined the flood of personalities who are joining this movement.
In addition to all the above, the pandemic factor ended up boosting Netflix productions and taking advantage of the fact that most of the people were at home sheltering and enjoying a good series or movie at home. This is why it is not surprising that Netflix has more than one film among the nominees for various awards at the Academy Awards 2021.
