Barack and Michelle Obama are celebrating an Oscars nod after the first film released by their production company was nominated for Best Documentary on Monday morning.
The film, titled American Factory, was the first release of the Obama’s producing deal with Netflix, which was just announced back in May 2018, and has received critical acclaim since its August 2019 release. However, the nomination for the 2020 Academy Awards is its biggest accolade yet and has both Michelle and Barack expressing congratulations to the team of producers nominated.
So thrilled that Julia Reichert, Steven Bognar, and all of the incredible people behind #AmericanFactory are nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar! We’re so proud of them and amazed by their talent for storytelling. See for yourself now on @Netflix. pic.twitter.com/pLEE5zg0gr— Michelle Obama (@MichelleObama) January 13, 2020
Glad to see American Factory’s Oscar nod for Best Documentary. It’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough and it’s exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground. Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team!— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) January 13, 2020
“It’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough,” Barack noted in his tweet, “and it’s exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground.”
