The Oscars 2021 will go down in history thanks to the fact that for the first time two women were nominated in the director category, for its diverse list of nominated actors and because it is one of the editions of the ceremony with more films that were produced or will be exclusively released in streaming.
It is not a big surprise that Netflix is the most nominated studio this year, the streaming platform premiered great documentaries (such as The Topo Agent , which is the only Latin film nominated), biographical dramas and even animated children's films that received great criticism and that left their mark with interesting stories that confirm that streaming and art are not in conflict.
Films like Nomadland and Promising Young Woman (which every man should see) are expected to become the night's big winners, but among the winners we will undoubtedly find productions like Soul, Mank and Crip Camp , which will lead to streaming a a step further in the industry and the perception of critics, fans and members of the Academy on films that are produced for small screens.
2020 was a year without cinemas, the good news is that many of those that appear in the list of nominees for the Oscars 2021 can be seen from the comfort of your favorite armchair and without having to buy a ticket for a dark room.
