Oscars snub Mister Rogers documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor?
On Monday, the tearjerker of a film based on Fred Rogers' life and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood described itself as "the most acclaimed documentary of 2018." On Tuesday, Won't You Be My Neighbor? failed to earn a nomination for best documentary. "Past Oscar winner Morgan Neville’s touching and insightful portrait of Fred Rogers was a true crowd pleaser for our times but clearly the Academy didn’t want to drop by for a visit, which is bizarre," writes Deadline's Dominic Patten. Us Weekly movie critic Mara Reinstein described it as the "biggest shock of the morning," while Rolling Stone's David Fear said everybody thought that an Oscar win was the biggest lock for the documentary since last summer. "No big surprises with the Oscar Nominations," tweeted The Hollywood Reporter executive editor Matthew Belloni. "For me, the biggest disappointment is the Mister Rogers movie didn’t get nominated for documentary feature."

“I’ve never had an experience that has been this delayed in television before,” says the mega-producer of You's massive success on Netflix after flailing on Lifetime. “The fact that it was rewarded by people actually watching made us feel we’re not crazy. We actually did make something that was really enjoyable and fun and a real ride for the audience.” He adds: It went from being one of the least-watched shows I’ve ever worked on and been most proud of — and I’m choosing to take Netflix at their word on this — to being the most-watched show I’ve ever worked on in 20-something years of being in the business."
