Disney Looks Like A Genuine Netflix Contender


Primarily, the film's lead, Austin Butler, is a strong contender to win Best Actor, and it appears the movie may also be among the Best Picture nominees. It should also perform well in the below-the-line categories, picking up nominations like best editing and best costume design.




Disney looks like a genuine Netflix contender



The Whale appears likely to only be a major contender in Best Actor and possibly in Best Supporting Actress for Hong Chau, though it's not impossible that it could earn a Best Picture nomination. It's now in limited theaters, but a video on demand date hasn't been announced.


Another top contender for Best Animated Feature is this acclaimed Pixar film following a young girl who turns into a giant red panda every time she becomes extremely emotional. It looks like Disney's strongest contender for the animated film Oscar this year, and the film is now streaming on Disney+.


At a press conference in New York, Walmart announced a slate of new commissions for its streaming contender, Vudu. Added to the 100,000-plus TV shows and movies already available on the service, viewers can expect the likes of Friends in Strange Places, a travel/comedy series overseen by Queen Latifah; interview documentary strand Turning Point with Randy Jackson; and a series-length reboot of 1983 Michael Keaton comedy Mr Mom.


Lashana Lynch is in No Time To Die and it looks like she technically has the 007 moniker, after Bond has retired. This will all change when he gets back in the saddle but should she be the next James Bond? It would certainly be the shake-up the franchise needs, even if the Broccoli have said that Bond will be a man.


And while Apple may still be figuring out licensing deals that fit with the service, it can always leverage its vast content budget to greenlight possible prestige contenders alongside more established services like Netflix and Amazon.


For all intents and purposes, the Streaming Wars kicked off in 2007, when Netflix launched streaming video from its platform. As technology advanced and became increasingly affordable for the average household, the demise of Blockbuster Video in 2010 was proof-positive that the world had embraced streaming as the next evolution in home entertainment. New streaming sites, like Hulu in 2008, began popping up, some far more successful than others (Yahoo! View, we hardly knew ye), but Netflix would change the game again by launching its first foray into original programming, 2013's House of Cards. Serious contenders to the streaming throne, like Disney+, began to rise up around 2018, but Netflix was still the undisputed king of streaming.


While the third contender's impact in the Streaming Wars has yet to be fully realized, with merger details and fallout still being worked out, it would be daft to assume that the AT&T/WarnerMedia/Discover would be anything less than a major player. With content from the HBO, Warner Bros., and Discovery platforms, and intellectual properties like DC Comics and Looney Tunes, AT&T has access to a long history of television and film, not unlike Disney, with an estimated 200,000 hours of content available. The HBO side, specifically, has been very impactful with its original programming, with Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and Sex and the City examples of shows that have deep name recognition amongst the general public.


We're keeping an eye on contenders in all the categories, not just the big awards. If you are, too, here are a few movies you can catch on Netflix that are likely to play a part in the award season conversations.


As award season gears up for the next few months, there are a flood of movies being released and brought back to the forefront as critics and fans scramble to predict who the big nominees and winners will be. The Golden Globe nominations were a pretty good indicator of which way the wind is blowing: a diverse combination of critically acclaimed blockbusters like Black Panther, Crazy Rich Asians, and A Star Is Born, along with lesser-known titles that are suddenly the center of attention and a few movies that aren't even in theaters yet.\nWe're keeping an eye on contenders in all the categories, not just the big awards.
