Netflix bags first Best Picture Oscar Nomination

Netflix is finally in the hunt for Hollywood’s ultimate prize.

The streaming company received its first-ever best picture Oscar nomination on Tuesday for Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma,” a black-and-white exploration of the “Gravity” director’s youth and the life of the nanny who helped raise him in Mexico. The drama received 10 nominations in total, making it by far Netflix’s biggest hit with the motion picture academy to date.
