What you need to know

  • Apple TV+ has bagged two Oscar 2021 nominations.
  • Both Greyhound and Wolfwalkers are in the running for awards.

Apple TV+ has bagged its first Oscar nominations with Greyhound up for a Best Sound award and Wolfwalkers in the running for a Best Animated Feature gong.

While Apple TV+ executives may be disappointed that none of its content is up for any of the major awards, neither of the two nominations are to be sniffed at. Wolfwalkers, in particular, is a nomination worth taking note of given the way Pixar tends to have the category sewn up. Netflix joins Apple TV+ and Pixar in the nominations for that particular category.

Best Animated Feature Film

Onward (Pixar)

Over the Moon (Netflix)

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (Netflix)

Soul (Pixar)

Wolfwalkers (Apple TV Plus/GKIDS)
