Oscars 2021: Netflix wins 7 statuettes

Even if Mank is doing less well than expected, it is an honorable score for the platform. On the other hand, Chadwick Boseman does not take down a statuette.

On Sunday April 25, the whole of Hollywood got together for 93rd Academy Awards. This event, postponed by two months due to the pandemic, had to adapt to the health situation in the world. If it took place mainly in Los Angeles, about twenty places were also linked by satellite to the mythical Dolby Theater in the city of angels. Unsurprisingly, it is Chloe Zhao’s film that takes home the prestigious awards for best film, best director and best actress for Frances McDormand.

The disappointment for Mank

The Netflix film was on the right track, however. Named in ten categories, Mank did not do the heist expected. The film dedicated to the life of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz ultimately received only two statuettes, one for best photography and another for best scenery. The platform also won the prize for the best costume design and the best make-up with Ma Rainey’s Blues. On the other hand, Chadwick Boseman, to whom Netflix will devote a documentary, did not win a posthumous title for the film. It is Anthony Hopkins who obtains the statuette for best actor for The Father. It is all the same a good performance for the firm of Reed Hasting which leaves with 7 statuettes in total.

Tenet on the charts

The summer blockbuster made its way through the ceremony. Tenet, by Christopher Nolan, wins the award for best visual effects. He caps at the pole Midnight in the universe and Love and monsters, two Netflix-stamped feature films. Finally, it should be noted that Pixar’s last film accumulates exploits, since it won the title of best animated film as well as that of best film music. Soul had already won the same award at the Golden Globes last February.
