Netflix’s ‘Mudbound’ Wins Audience Award at Middleburg Film Festival; Could Oscar Nominations be Next?

Netflix original movie ‘Mudbound,’ directed by Dee Rees, recently won an Audience Award for best Narrative and could possibly earn Netflix an Oscar: 

““Mudbound,” which is currently in 12th place to claim the Best Picture Oscar according to our 24 experts, just won the Audience Award for Best Narrative at the Middleburg Film Festival. While this film fest based in suburban D.C. is only in its fifth year, the winner of this specific award has factored into the Oscar race in a big way. Every winner of this prize has gone on to at least be nominated for Best Picture: “Philomena” in 2013, “The Imitation Game” in 2014, “Spotlight” in 2015 (Oscar champ), and “Lion” in 2016. This trend would be very important for the film as Netflix has not done well so far in scoring Oscar nominations outside of the documentary categories.”
