Sherrybaby has become one of the highest-profile and most acclaimed movies distributed by Netflix, winning best picture and best actress awards for Gyllenhaal both at the Karlovy Vary film festival and the Stockholm film festival this year. The movie appeared in theaters in September, and will be released on DVD on January 23. Now that Gyllenhaal's Golden Globe nomination will raise general awareness of Sherrybaby even more, this can only be good for Netflix -- both in terms of DVD rentals of the film, and in raising its prestige as a theatrical distributor. (I just saved the movie to my own Netflix queue -- the nomination was a great reminder.) And if the Golden Globes truly do foreshadow the Oscar nominations, Netflix could become an even larger force in indie-film distribution.
