Netflix made history last night by taking home six Oscars, beating out all other streaming services. This impressive haul was largely thanks to the German language adaptation of the classic WWI book, All Quiet on the Western Front, which took home four awards, including Best International Feature, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Original Score.


While some critics may have had issues with the score, the fact that it was recognized with an Oscar is a testament to the film’s overall quality. Netflix also took home the Best Animated Feature award for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, which is a significant achievement given the fierce competition from established animation studios like DreamWorks, Sony Pictures, and Pixar.

However, the ceremony was dominated by Everything Everywhere All at Once, a film from A24 that won seven awards, including Best Director, Best Picture, and three of the four acting awards. Despite being handicapped by its early 2022 release, the film managed to make a huge impact on the night and is sure to be remembered as one of the standout films of the year.


The emotional speeches by Ke Huy Quan and Michelle Yeoh were perhaps the highlights of the night. Yeoh became the first Asian person to win Best Actress and dedicated her award to “all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities.”

Netflix’s impressive showing at the Oscars is a testament to the quality of its content and its ability to compete with traditional studios. While Apple TV+ managed to win one award for Best Animated Short Film, Netflix remains the clear leader in the streaming space and is sure to continue producing award-winning content for years to come.
