One of the most buzzed-about films of the year is “Don’t Look Up,” and now it’s a four-time Oscar nominee for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing and Best Score. As the Netflix satire explores the topic of politicians dismissing the impending climate crisis, according to GoldDerby, you can bet it received its fair share of lovers – and haters – online. But now “Don’t Look Up” is getting the last laugh after being embraced by the academy. Though Netflix is usually tight-lipped about its viewing data, the streamer has confirmed that “Don’t Look Up” is its second most watched movie of all time, behind only “Red Notice.” It features an eye-popping A-list cast, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence playing astronomers who discover a comet barreling toward Earth, and Meryl Streep and Jonah Hill portraying the politicians who don’t believe them or simply don’t care. The cast was recently honored at the SAG Awards in the film ensemble category. “Don’t Look Up” also scored precursor bids at the BAFTAs and eight guilds. “Don’t Look Up” is the eighth film with Meryl Streep to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. “The Deer Hunter”, “Kramer vs. Kramer” and “Out of Africa” won Best Picture, while “Julia”, “The Hours”, “The Post” and “Little Women” received nominations. The Oscars will be handed out on March 27, 2022.

Even a month after its Netflix release, “Don’t Look Up” is still sparking a conversation about its impact on how we view the change of climate and our world. Earlier today, Meryl Streep and Adam McKay were guests on CNN’s “Amapour” to talk about these topics and the film’s final scene. You can watch the complete interview over at CNN’s website. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

While the film continues to divide audiences and critics, “Don’t Look Up” continues to climb the Netflix charts, this week officially becoming the streamer’s second most successful movie of all time. The film added 58.2 million hours viewed globally across the week January 2-9. That takes it to 321,520,000 total viewing hours since it debuted online December 24, meaning it has overtaken Bird Box (282,020,000 hours) as the second most popular pic on Netflix. The metrics are calculated by hours watched in a title’s first 28 days on the platform, when the vast majority of viewing hours are recorded. And Netflix continues to keep our interest in the film with much promotional material, such as additional featurettes and interviews being added in the last couple of days. Below you will find an overview of what has been added to the site, including a new lengthy video conversation with the cast which was conducted by Netflix in November. I’ve also added more articles and reviews with many thanks to my friend Alvaro. Enjoy the new additions.

Happy New Year everybody. What better way to start 2022 with a rare television appearance I have been looking forever. In 1997, Meryl Streep attended The Rosie O’Donnell Show to promote the theatrical release of “Marvin’s Room”. Since last year, the show’s Youtube channel is uploading appearances from the beginning, and finally Meryl’s appearance has been featured in great video quality. There’s a second appearance to look forward to, since Meryl attended the show again in 1999 to promote “Music of the Heart”, but if the channel uploads daily in chronological order, we’re going to have to wait a couple more years for this :-) Alongside this great interview, a couple other older interviews have been added to the archives within the last week without further mention, so in case you haven’t seen them by now, explore some more great finds.
