Netflix revealed its strategy for Oscar contender ‘Roma,’ but experts disagree on whether it will charm the Academy (NFLX)
|10/17/2018||Posted by BusinessMediaguide.Com under General World News||
- Netflix said its Oscar contender, “Roma,” will be released in at least 100 theaters.
- That’s one of the largest theatrical releases by the streaming giant, which will also make the movie available on its site at the same time.
- Oscar pundit Tom O’Neil from Gold Derby told Business Insider the movie is an Oscar frontrunner and the 100 theater release proves Netflix means business.
- But comScore box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian believes there will still be challenges for “Roma” getting award season consideration because Netflix isn’t giving the movie an exclusive theatrical release.
