Among top films to come away a winner this year was an Alfonso CuraÃ³n film named Roma. It scored an industry first in that despite the fact that it was available for viewers to stream on Netflix even as it was still playing in theaters, Roma was not only a serious contender for competitive awards like Best Director and Best Picture, it actually won three of the four awards it was nominated for.
