Rob Lowe said that his Netflix film, “Holiday in the Wild,” drew more viewers to the streaming platform than Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-contender “The Irishman.”“I just did a movie for Netflix that was the number one movie that they had,” Lowe said Monday during the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, when he was asked if he preferred working on streaming shows instead of network TV. “A little stupid Christmas elephant movie and it beat — take that Martin Scorsese.”Lowe did not give any hard numbers on that — TheWrap has asked Netflix to verify Lowe’s claim — but “The Irishman,” Scorsese’s three-hour mob epic, drew 13.2 million viewers in its first five days, according to Nielsen. That average-minute audience is more than “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” (8.2 million) and less than “Bird Box” (16.9 million).Also Read: 'Masked Dancer': Fox Orders Competition Series Based on 'Ellen Show' Spoof of 'Masked Singer'The gangster film, which carries a runtime of three hours and 29 minutes, was released on the streaming service on Nov. 27. It opened in theaters on Nov. 1, but Netflix does not generally report box office numbers. Per Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, it was seen by more than 26 million accounts during its first week (Netflix counts a view once someone has watched 70% of a show or movie). “The Irishman” starred Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino is considered a favorite for major Oscar awards next month.“Holiday in the Wild” was released on Nov. 1 and co-starred “Sex and the City” alum Kristin Davis. Here is the logline for that film:To keep her spirits high when their son leaves for college, Manhattanite Kate Conrad (Davis) has booked a ‘second honeymoon’ with her husband. Instead of thanking her, he brings their relationship to a sudden end; jilted Kate proceeds to Africa for a solo safari. During a detour through Zambia, she helps her pilot, Derek Holliston (Lowe), rescue an orphaned baby elephant. They nurse him back to health at a local elephant orphanage, and Kate extends her stay through Christmastime. Far from the modern luxuries of home, Kate thrives amidst majestic animals and scenery. Her love for the new surroundings just might extend to the man who shared her journey.Read original story Rob Lowe Says His ‘Little Stupid Christmas Elephant Movie’ Got More Netflix Viewers Than ‘The Irishman’ At TheWrap
Golden Globe winners “1917” and “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” have both been nominated for the Producers Guild of America’s top film award, along with a slate of nominees that also includes “Parasite,” “The Irishman,” “Marriage Story” and “Little Women.”Rounding out the PGA list, which is typically an accurate predictor of Oscar success are “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Knives Out” and the most-nominated film in Tuesday morning’s BAFTA nominations, “Joker.”“Parasite” is the second film not in English to be nominated in the last two years, after “Roma” last year. The only other non-English films to be nominated in this century were 2000’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” 2006’s “Babel” and 2007’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.”Also Read: BAFTA Nominations Put '1917' in the Awards Spotlight Again - and 'Joker,' TooThe 10 films on the list include almost all of the movies deemed most likely to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture, with “Knives Out” perhaps coming as the only slight surprise. Films not included on the Producers Guild slate include “The Farewell,” “The Two Popes,” “Bombshell,” “Pain and Glory” and “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”While the omission may be particularly troubling for “The Farewell” and “Bombshell,” the PGA has a history of bypassing smaller indie films in favor of more commercially successful productions.Two producers have double nominations in the feature film category: David Heyman, who produced both “Marriage Story” and “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, who produced “The Irishman” and “Joker.”In the animation category, the Producers Guild nominated a slate of high-profile U.S. films: “Abominable,” “Frozen II,” “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” “Missing Link” and “Toy Story 4.”Also Read: Golden Globes Analysis: The Stars Ignore Ricky Gervais on a Night of SurprisesTelevision nominations included “The Crown,” “Big Little Lies,” “Succession,” “Watchmen” and the final season of “Game of Thrones” in the drama category, and “Barry,” “Fleabag,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Schitt’s Creek” and “Veep” in comedy. “Chernobyl,” “Fosse/Verdon,” “True Detective,” “Unbelievable” and “When They See Us” were nominated in the limited series category, while “Deadwood” and “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Story” were among the nominees for TV movies.The guild also nominated in non-fiction, live entertainment and talk, and game and talk television categories. The full list of nominees is below.A Producers Guild feature-film nomination is a reliable predictor of Oscar success: Since the Academy and the Guild both expanded from five to 10 nominees in 2009, 78 of the 101 Producers Guild nominees have gone on to receive Oscar nominations.But the two awards never align completely: Last year, for instance, eight of the 10 Producers Guild Awards nominees received Oscar nominations, while two — “Crazy Rich Asians” and “A Quiet Place” – did not.Also Read: Golden Globes Most Memorable Moments, From F-Word Jokes to Michelle Williams' Pro Choice PleaIn the first 29 years of the Producers Guild Awards, which began in 1989, the nominations exactly matched the Oscars only three times: 1992, 1993 and 1994, when both categories consisted of five nominees. Only once, in 1996, has the eventual Oscar Best Picture winner (which was “Braveheart” that year) not been first nominated by the guild.The Producers Guild is the third of the four major Hollywood guilds to announce its nominations for the films of 2019. The Screen Actors Guild announced in December, while the Writers Guild revealed its film nominees on Monday and the Directors Guild will do so on the same day as the PGA.PGA winners will be announced at the Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 18.The nominations:The Darryl F.

Hollywood officially crowned a new global box office champ in 2019, as "Avengers: Endgame" edged past "Avatar" to become the highest-grossing movie in history. But while there was much joy in the MCU, back in our world there’s evidence that Hollywood at large kind of struck out.
