Apple (TV Plus, Studios) Wins Four Big Awards at SAG, May Beat Netflix, Amazon to Oscar

Share

Apple — what do I call it? TV Plus? Studios? — whatever it is, Apple won four huge SAG Awards tonight and may beat Netflix and Amazon to the Oscars Best Picture.

“CODA” won Best Ensemble and Troy Kotsur won Best Supporting Actor tonight. It’s major. “CODA” snatched Ensemble from “Power of the Dog,” “Belfast,” and all the others. It’s now got the inside track for Best Picture.

Apple TV also picked up awards for best TV comedy, “Ted Lasso,” and its star, Jason Sudeikis.

At Sundance in January 2021, Apple paid a record $25 million for “CODA.” I don’t think it’s actually played in a movie theater yet but it will this weekend, for free, first come, first served. Check your theaters.

“CODA” has just been on Apple TV since last fall. There are huge numbers of people yet to see it and fall in love with it.

But what a crazy upset. Netflix has put everything into the campaign for “The Power of the Dog.” “Belfast” has been a front runner. I thought “West Side Story” would be this year’s blockbuster.

“CODA” is the movie with the Big Idea, as it turns out. It’s also beloved by anyone who sees it.

And now the race is on.
