The 10 best Netflix original movies
There was a time when the best movies were made by large production companies in Hollywood before being trotted out for a theatrical debut and an eventual release on DVD or a streaming service like Netflix. More and more, however, those days seem to be a thing of the past. Now, some of the best films are produced by the streamers themselves.
In 2022, two of the Best Picture nominees at the Oscars — The Power of the Dog and Don't Look Up — were Netflix original movies (though the trophy went to another streamer, AppleTV+, for CODA). Though Netflix hasn't been able to nab a Best Picture win yet (Roma marked the streamer's very first Best Picture Oscar nom in 2019), it's a Hollywood accolade within reach as Netflix clearly excels when it comes to making original films. Here are the top 10 best Netflix original movies — some of which are Oscar winners — you can stream now.
