Netflix Wins Six Oscars for ‘All Quiet on the Western Front,’ ‘Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio,’ ‘The Elephant Whisperers’
March 13, 2023
Following industry award-winning juggernaut Everything Everywhere All at Once dominance at the 95th Academy Awards, Netflix quietly followed behind collecting six Oscars across 16 nominations.
The streamer won big for the grim reboot of Erich Maria Remarque’s 1929 novel adaption for German World War I drama All Quiet on the Western Front, including best international feature, cinematography, original score and production design. The original 1930 movie, also based on the novel, won four Oscars at the 3rd Academy Awards, including outstanding production (now called best picture).

Netflix also won Oscars for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio (best animated feature) and The Elephant Whisperers (best documentary short film category). The former beat out Netflix’s other nominated animated feature The Sea Beast.
The SVOD pioneer, under the direction of co-CEO Ted Sarandos, has long made industry awards a priority, generating 16 Oscars across 116 nominations. All Quiet was also up for best picture, but lost out to Everything Everywhere All at Once — which topped the Awards with seven Oscars.
Regardless, the 2023 Oscars haul is a strong comeback for Netflix, which won just one Oscar (Jane Campion’s best director win for The Power of the Dog) across 27 nominations in 2022.
