That was also a good time at the Golden Globes, where Netflix is understood to have received 34 nominations, a 2.6-fold increase from last year. The broadcaster didn’t get a single nomination this year, suggesting that Netflix is overtaking them, and that it’s traditionally the latter’s own game.

Next year, Netflix will face stiffer competition from HBO Max, Quibi and Peacock, and they are likely to increase production again. Netflix’s original film and television productions next year are likely to exceed 400.
