Netflix is well on its way to establishing itself as the top streaming platform across the globe. From humble beginnings, the streaming giant’s ascent to become a top player when it comes to streaming media was also accompanied by its foray, and then dominance, when it came to production. Netflix has proved itself to be a contender to watch out for in the field, with several of its original content becoming selected for some of the highest accolades in existence today, including Emmy Awards and Academy Awards. Netflix films have proved their mettle at the Oscars from time to time, with a number of them becoming nominated in the Best Picture category every year for the past five years. At this year’s Oscars, the streaming giant had a lot to beam about, courtesy of All Quiet on the Western Front.


The German language film, based on Erich Maria Remarque’s 1929 novel of the same name, follows the story of Paul Bäumer, a young man who enlists in the army, whose idealistic notions of the war are shattered when he realises the gruesome reality of the same. Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Daniel Brühl, Sebastian Hülk, Aaron Hilmer, Edin Hasanovic, and Devid Striesow star in the film.

The Edward Berger directorial had received nine nominations at this year’s Oscars, including 2023 Best Picture, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound, Best Production Design, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score and Best International Feature Film, winning the latter four.

Apart from All Quiet on the Western Front, other Netflix productions which were nominated this year include Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery(For Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay), The Sea Beast (For Best Animated Feature Film), The Elephant Whisperers(For Best Documentary Short Subject), The Martha Mitchell Effect(Best Documentary Short Subject), Bardo False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths(Best Cinematography), and Blonde(Best Actress for Ana de Armas).

Netflix’s The Elephant Whisperers also received an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short this year as well.

The 95th Academy Awards ceremony is available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
