Netflix’s wins so far have been for Best Documentary Feature in 2018, which went to Icarus, and Best Documentary Short Subject in 2017, which went to The White Helmets.

It’s been an uphill battle for the company to command the respect necessary to secure nominations and wins at the awards, with Steven Spielberg even saying in 2018 that he didn’t think Netflix films deserved Oscars.

With Tuesday’s Oscar nominations, though, Netflix doubled its total: The studio got 14 nominations this year alone, including its first for Best Picture, for Roma.
