Oscar Winners Netflix History

Netflix came away with just one award from the most recent 2024 96th Academy Awards, which adds to the tally of 23 Oscar wins in its history. Here’s a full recap of Netflix’s Oscar wins and nominations as of 2024.

Netflix takes the Oscars seriously, with Insider reporting that in 2022, Netflix had a 40-person awards operation along with 15 consultants who spread their time working on campaigns for Emmys and, of course, the Oscars. Despite that massive spending and resource allocation, it’s still yet to win some of the biggest prizes of the night when some of its close rivals have. Apple TV+ notably scored Best Picture at the 2022 Oscars, and Prime Video has scooped some top awards, too.

Of course, to some, Netflix’s inclusion in many of the awards it’s been nominated for has been seen as controversial, given that Netflix hasn’t fully embraced theatrical releases.

As of 2024, a few big awards have still eluded Netflix, most notably Best Picture, which Netflix has not won despite having nine nominations in the category, with Maestro coming away empty-handed in 2024. Likewise, Netflix has never won a Best Actor or Actress award.


How many Oscar Nominations has Netflix had?

In total, Netflix has received 152 Oscar nominations in its history, with 2021 being the year it received the most nominations, with 36.
