A Netflix movie has established itself as a frontrunner across the Oscars – including for Best Picture, going up against Everything Everywhere All at Once.
This year’s 95th Academy Awards are set to be particularly competitive. While some races are already decided – Ke Huy Quan is winning Best Supporting Actor, there’s no debate – some of the bigger awards are far from decided.
For example, will Michelle Yeoh take home her first Oscar for her performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once, or will Cate Blanchett win her third Academy Award for TÁR? Will Brendan Fraser live up to the early season hype and win for The Whale, or will Austin Butler shimmy his way to the stage for Elvis?
After the nominations were announced, the biggest battle is clearly between two movies: Everything Everywhere All at Once and All Quiet on the Western Front.
While coming just under Everything Everywhere All at Once’s haul, Netflix‘s All Quiet on the Western Front racked up nine nominations, including nods for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best International Film.
The “anti-war” movie is an adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic novel and has received near-universal acclaim.

Most pundits and fans are in agreement: it’s between Everything Everywhere All at Once, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Banshees of Inisherin, and The Fabelmans for Best Picture.
“Calling it now All Quiet on the Western Front is gonna win Best Picture,” one user wrote. “All Quiet in The Western Front could be a sleeper win for Best Picture,” another wrote.

“I hope All Quiet On The Western Front wins Best Picture and pisses everyone off,” a third tweeted.
“EEAAO vs All Quiet on the Western Front makes me sad because either would win Best Picture if they came out in separate years,” a fourth wrote. “I didn’t expect that All Quiet On The Western Front has a very big chance to win Best Picture at this year’s Oscars. What a wonderful film,” another wrote.
