Netflix is slaying all other streaming companies right now when it comes to movie selection, and now, it could beat them in another huge category: the Oscars.
After getting their first Emmy and Golden Globe wins for their original series, House of Cards, the company has followed it up with an Oscar documentary nomination for their film, The Square. The company purchased the rights to the film in November, and will be releasing the film for streaming starting tomorrow. The documentary focuses on the Egyptian protests in Tahrir Square in July 2013.
"Netflix, from a distribution perspective, understands the changing landscape of how people are consuming content," said Karim Amer, producer on the film. "We’re excited about being their first official documentary —they really believe in the film and are standing up to support it."
