‘The Power of the Dog’ Wins Its 21st Best Picture Prize, Surpassing ‘Roma’ for New Netflix Record

‘The Power of the Dog’ Wins Its 21st Best Picture Prize, Surpassing ‘Roma’ for New Netflix Record
Netflix has been looking for its first best picture Oscar for the past few years. With the winners now announced for the North Dakota Film Society, “The Power of the Dog” takes home its 21st awards season prize for best picture. The streamer has now surpassed its best awards season record, set by the 20 best picture prizes won by Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” (2018).

The last three awards seasons have seen the streaming giant fall short in favor of another film that benefits from a preferential ballot system. As a result, we’ve witnessed “Green Book” over “Roma,” “Parasite” over “The Irishman” and “Nomadland” over “Mank.”

Netflix’s win over the weekend from the Kansas City Film Critics, the second-oldest professional film critics association in the United States, tied their season-best. Looking forward, will that bring them their long-sought-after best picture trophy from the Academy Awards?

We’re 11 days from the opening of Oscar nomination voting.
