‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘Bombshell,’ ‘Irishman’ Top SAG Awards Nominations 2020

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is an ode to the golden age of movies, while “Bombshell,” a look at the Fox News employees who exposed Roger Ailes’ sexual harassment, tells a darker story about the media business. “The Irishman,” an epic about the intersection of organized crime and the labor movement, is directed by Martin Scorsese, one of the fiercest defenders of the theatrical experience. However, in order to get the ambitious, $175 million movie made, Scorsese allied himself with Netflix, the streaming service that’s disrupting the movie business. – Brent Lang, Variety » https://trib.al/kFc5j7p [photo: Screen Actors Guild Awards, LLC]

Golden Globe Nominations by the Numbers: ‘Marriage Story,’ ‘Chernobyl,’ ‘Unbelievable’ Land on Top

Netflix reigned supreme with 34 total nominations across both the film and television categories. The streamer, which broke into the television awards race less than 10 years ago, distributed three of the five most nominated films — “Marriage Story” (6 noms), “The Irishman” (5 noms), and “The Two Popes” (4 noms). All three of those films were also nominated for best drama film. On the television side, Netflix shows “Unbelievable” and “The Crown” both tied HBO’s “Chernobyl” as the most-nominated shows of the year with four nominations each. – Joe Otterson, Variety » https://trib.al/1ULP3GN

‘One Day At a Time’ Wins First Emmy For Netflix Post-Cancellation As It Gears Up For New Season On Pop

One Day At a Time contributed an Emmy win to Netflix’s tally, going 1-for-1 with its single Emmy nomination and faring better than several higher-profile and more hyped Netflix projects like Beyonce’s concert film Homecoming, which went 0-for-6. – Nellie Andreeva, Deadline Hollywood » http://dlvr.it/RD9kpQ

Netflix Wins As Academy Leaves Oscar Eligibility Rule Unchanged

Instead, the board left intact Rule Two, the one that established that a film can be eligible for Oscars if it has a minimum 7-day theatrical run in a L.A. County commercial theater. That theater has to have a minimum of three screenings for paid admission each of those seven days, and those movies can be released on streaming sites on or after the first day of their theatrical qualifying run. – Dominic Patten, Deadline Hollywood » http://bit.ly/2W3veYX

Academy Prepping Service to Stream Best Picture Oscar Hopefuls for Voters (Exclusive)

It turns out the Academy is working on expanding the streaming platform that it has offered its members in recent years — which made available, via the Academy’s website, animated films for the animation committee prior to the nominations announcement, and documentaries and short films to all members afterwards, all without charging distributors — to include any best picture Oscar contender that a studio wishes to promote at a cost of $10,000 to $15,000 per title. – Rebecca Keegan & Scott Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter » http://bit.ly/2IulbJi

Cannes & Netflix: Fest Chiefs On ‘Roma’ Fallout, Future Plans & French Windows

While Frémaux stressed that Netflix didn’t have any features ready for the 2019 edition of Cannes, this is the first year since 2015 that the festival won’t screen a Netflix or Amazon film. The latter will show two episodes of Nicolas Winding Refn’s TV series Too Old To Die Young, but it’s interesting to note that Cannes is moving in the opposite direction to most A-list festivals, which increasingly show the streamers’ movies. What’s also interesting to consider is that this is becoming a decision taken as much by the streamers as the festival itself. – Nancy Tartaglione & Andreas Wiseman, Deadline Hollywood » http://bit.ly/2ZmvqEw

Oscars: Netflix Takes On Hollywood Studios With 15 Noms

The streamer scored 15 Academy Award nominations Tuesday. It was buoyed by Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma, which led with 10 nods, and also picked up three nominations for the Coen Brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and another two for short documentaries. Roma puts Netflix in the coveted best-picture category for the first time. And the 15 noms Netflix amassed this year equal the 15 nods total it has collected in previous years. – Pamela McClintock, The Hollywood Reporter » https://ift.tt/2GFWKrn
