With the 93rd Academy Awards due to take place on ABC on April 25th, we thought we’d take a look back at how well Netflix has performed at the Oscars over the past 7 years and tell you how many awards they’ve actually taken home from The Academy Awards.
You may think that Netflix has swept the Oscars since it’s been creating Originals but that’s far from the truth. Although we don’t have the results from the 2021 Oscars yet, Netflix has only scored 8 Oscar wins in its history. That’s despite Netflix having racked up 54 nominations since 2014. If you’re wanting a percentage, so far Netflix has only managed to convert 15% of its nominations into awards.
As a recap, here are all of Netflix’s Oscar nominations broken down into years:
- 2021: 36 Nominations
- 2020: 24 Nominations
- 2019: 14 Nominations
- 2018: 8 Nominations
- 2017: 3 Nominations
- 2016: 2 Nominations
- 2015: 1 Nomination
- 2014: 1 Nomination
- 2013: 0 Nominations
Netflix will be hoping to add to its tally this weekend with an impressive 36 individual nominations for 2021. That brings Netflix’s total Oscar nomination count between 2014 and 2021 to 89.
Hot favorites from Netflix’s camp for 2021 include The Trial of the Chicago 7, Mank and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
