Netflix attracted award-winning directors like Martin Scorsese and Alfonso Cuaron, thanks to its original streaming content and a budget that grew quickly.
Netflix has eight films that have been nominated for the Academy Awards' best picture award in just 10 years. Two of these films, Roma and The Power of the Dog, won the best director award.
Netflix continues to dominate the awards given for small screens. It won 44 Emmy Awards in 2021, more than any other streaming service or network. It won twice as many Emmys in 2021 than its nearest competitor (HBO). Netflix won 26 Emmys in 2022. This included six Emmys for Squid Game, and five Emmys for Stranger Things. Netflix's The Crown has also won 21 Emmy Awards out of 62 nominations, the most for any Netflix series.
