Netflix released a few days ago a list with the most watched content by its users in 2019. The head was a Criminal on the sea, a movie house, starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, and vista, according to the own platform, for more than 30 million users after its premiere on the 14 of June of last year. Then there was the third season of their signature series, Stranger Things, which —always according to the platform— it became in July in the more view of the history of Netflix, with 40 million views the first month (of them, only 18.2 million had finished the entire run of chapters). Was a tape of action from Michael Bay premiered by them, 6 Underground, the fantasy epic The Witcher, which has managed to enter the list despite having been premiered on the 20th of December; The Umbrella Academy, the series of a family of superheroes, and then a few films premiered and created by Netflix: The irish, Scorsese, in the fifth position; Triple Border, with Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac, in the seventh and The Highway Men, a production about Bonnie and Clyde, and with Kevin Costner in the tenth.

Golden Globes 2020: where and when to see the gala ‘The Crown’ and ‘Believe me’, head in the great year of Netflix

Netflix became in December in the study that most nominations received in a single ceremony: 17 for their premieres in the cinema and many other for your series, among which are the beautiful children of the critics, such as The Crown, Believe me, The Politician or The method Kominsky. That day, the platform also happened to embody the crossroad in which, increasingly, is going encallando television production. The number of first-run series go up every year, from 487 in 2017 the record of 530 productions only in the united States in 2019; with ever more aberrant it is more difficult not to say what is best of each year, but to align the public and criticism in specific trends. The relevance of such an award depends on it.

Until now, the traditional tension between the most watched and the most awarded had been maintained in some related tables. Mad Men, which had an audience famously low during its seven seasons, eventually winning five Golden Globes (three best dramatic series and two of his protagonist, Jon Hamm). But at the other extreme is The Walking Dead, series, zombie, considered a minority, but takes ten seasons on air: five of them as the series most-watched american television and nine as the most watched cable. At least it was nominated for a Golden Globe as best drama series. Audiences and critics are aligned on this. It was in his first season, in 2010. That year there were 216 series.

In 2019, the number shot productions has had special difficulties to fit in the five nominations for the 11 awards that the Association of the Foreign Press of Hollywod delivery since 1944. Since it was announced, on the 9th of December, criticism regrets the lack of big favorites: Thus we see, on racism in the New York of the eighties, or Russian Doll, a fantasy existentialist (both on Netflix). The public is asked where is Game of thrones, by far the series most-watched in the past year, or Euphoria (both HBO). And in the middle, the Golden Globes, which for years was the brand progressive likening the television to the cinema, a few Oscar less girded order, that is, with more freedom. In 2009, the awards of the Academy expanded to ten Best picture nominees, precisely so as not to give back to the favorite of the public. Now, the Golden Globes must decide what to do with such series.
