    "Don't Look up" et Netflix n'ont presque rien gagné aux Oscars, c'est Apple TV qui triomphe

    news.movim.eu / HuffingtonPost · Monday, 28 March - 08:59 · 2 minutes

L

OSCARS - Avec son sacre lors de la cérémonie du dimanche 27 mars, CODA permet à Apple TV+ de devenir la première plateforme de streaming à remporter aux Oscars un prix dans la catégorie phare du meilleur long-métrage. Le service de vidéo à la demande bat ainsi son rival, Netflix, et scelle la réconciliation entre la remise de prix et les plateformes de streaming .

Ni l’ultra favori The Power of the Dog de Jane Campion ni la comédie satirique Don’t Look Up n’auront permis à Netflix d’être la première plateforme à remporter l’Oscar du meilleur film. Le service de VoD propose pourtant depuis des années des films taillés pour la récompense tels que Roma d’Aflonso Cuaron (2018), The Irishman (2019) de Martin Scorcese ou encore Mank (2020) de David Fincher, rappelle Variety .

C’est finalement le tout jeune service Apple TV+, créé en 2019, qui a raflé la récompense suprême grâce au remake du film français La Famille Bélier . Avec son budget de 15 millions de dollars, CODA a également raflé la mise au nez et à la barbe de Dune et ses 165 millions de dollars de budget, peut se féliciter le producteur français Philippe Rousselet, qui a porté le film.

Premier acteur masculin sourd oscarisé

L’adaptation suit la vie d’une famille sourde et de leur fille entendante, Ruby. CODA a également remporté l’Oscar du meilleur scénario adapté et du meilleur acteur dans un second rôle pour le comédien de Broadway Troy Kotsur (53 ans). Ce dernier est devenu le premier acteur masculin sourd à remporter un Oscar.

Après avoir reçu plusieurs récompenses au festival du film indépendant de Sundance en janvier 2021, CODA avait été racheté par Apple TV+ pour près de 25 millions de dollars -un record de vente- à Sundance. Netflix était d’ailleurs intéressé par le rachat du long-métrage.

Malgré 12 nominations cette année, The Power of the Dog de Netflix n’a reçu qu’une récompense: l’Oscar de la meilleure réalisation attribué à Jane Campion. Autre lot de consolation pour Netflix, le prix du grand public est allé à Army of the Dead de Zack Snyder, qui a notamment devancé Spider-Man: No Way Home .

La victoire inédite d’un film porté par une plateforme de streaming pourrait toutefois avoir ouvert la porte pour d’autres, notamment pour Netflix. Variety rappelle que ce n’est qu’après le sacre de la série The Hamdmaid’s Tale de la plus petite plateforme Hulu aux Emmy, en 2017, que Netflix a également pu être récompensé lors de la cérémonie en 2021, avec The Crown .

Today, Apple pushed out the public releases of all its operating systems, including iOS/iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. These releases include new features across all platforms, not just bug fixes or security updates.

As usual, the iOS and iPad update (iOS and iPadOS 15.4) is the most major in terms of number and breadth of changes. The two biggest new features are arguably Universal Control support for the iPad and the ability to use Face ID while wearing a protective face mask.

To use Face ID with a mask, users must opt in to the capability in Settings. And Universal Control, which allows users to control both a Mac and an iPad seamlessly with the same input devices, requires both an iPad and a Mac on the latest software releases.

    “Friday Night Baseball” on deck for Apple TV+ subscribers

“Friday Night Baseball” on deck for Apple TV+ subscribers

At its Peek Performance event on Tuesday, Apple announced that it will stream live sports for the first time. "Friday Night Baseball," a weekly baseball doubleheader, will step up to the plate once the Major League Baseball season begins. (Owners locked out the players in December and have canceled a week's worth of games so far as a result of the work stoppage.)

Beyond Friday Night Baseball, Apple will offer a 24/7 livestream of highlights, replays, news, and talking heads for subscribers in the US and Canada. Apple TV+ subscribers can also tune into "MLB Big Inning," which Apple describes as a "live show featuring highlights and look-ins airing every weeknight during the regular season."

Most notably, "Friday Night Baseball" will be available in all markets—local broadcast restrictions will not apply to Apple's new service.

The past two decades have seen Apple transform itself from a maker of expensive computers to a hardware, software, and entertainment Goliath. Live sports may be next on the agenda—according to a report in Front Office Sports , Apple is eying a multibillion-dollar bid for the National Football League's Sunday Ticket package.

Sunday Ticket, which broadcasts out-of-market NFL games, has been carried by Directv since its launch in 1994. The rights to Sunday Ticket expire after the 2022 season, and with Directv hemorrhaging both subscribers and money , Sunday Ticket is going to have a new home for the 2023 season.

In addition to selling the rights to Sunday Ticket, the NFL is also seeking an investment partner for NFL Media, which includes the league's website , NFL Network, and NFL RedZone. Apple would also become a minority shareholder in NFL Media, in addition to getting the streaming rights to out-of-market NFL games.

    Review: Fraggle Rock on Apple TV+ is the Muppet series Disney+ wishes it had

The video-streaming world has long suffered from content fragmentation, and modern-day Muppet access is no exception. If you want to revel in all things Jim Henson, you'll need subscriptions to no less than three streamers: Disney+ (which has the most Henson films and series), HBO Max (which has a lock on Sesame Street ), and Apple TV+ . In a fairer cosmos, a unified Henson+ service would let fans feast upon the entire Muppet-verse like giddy Cookie Monsters. Alas.

Those streaming services don't just divvy up classic Muppet content, either. They each feature brand-new series from the Jim Henson Company, either with newly invented characters or old favorites reliving their glory days. Keeping up with all that content has been tricky, but we at Ars have done our best, always with the hope that one of the new properties will deliver a good-enough mix of nostalgia, production values, and freshness.

This week, Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock nails that exact combination and breathes new life into the formerly HBO-exclusive universe.

    Jon Stewart’s new Apple TV+ series: Old man yells at cloud—but it hits the spot

In Jon Stewart's first-ever conversation with an Apple TV+ studio audience, he offers a curious send-off—in fact, it argues against the point of his new multi-million dollar hosting deal . "You're probably just going to look at aggregated clips of" this first episode of The Problem With Jon Stewart , he says, instead of subscribing to Apple TV+. It's a bit meandering, followed by a joke about pirating episodes of Ted Lasso .

If anybody can show up to a new streaming service and make a joke at the expense of subscriptions, it's probably Stewart. Online video sharing—and we're talking the renegade kind, uploaded by fans and shared freely—greatly contributed to The Daily Show 's massive cultural footprint before Stewart left that show behind in 2015 . And as you may have noticed, the TV landscape has dramatically changed since then. These days, every major player is throwing stuff at the video-streaming wall to see what sticks (or, in Quibi's case last year, what absolutely doesn't ).

So after six years off the "fake news" desk, what path does Stewart and Apple's new production take? His aforementioned joke may suggest a series that's meant to be shared and remixed in small clips, but The Problem arrives with a different modus operandi: empathy, not sound bites, and patience, not pulverization. You can arguably pluck out some zingers tailor made for quick swipes on a service like TikTok, but Stewart seems more invested in relishing the full 44 minutes of each episode. As a result, this fake-news innovator spends the runtime of his new series punting the "fake" out of his reputation, expectations be damned.
