Neon Acquires 'Shirley', Wins First Best Picture Oscar


Neon, the distribution company behind films such as I, Tonya, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and the newly minted Best Picture winner Parasite, has acquired Shirley out of Sundance. Josephine Decker's drama about the author Shirley Jackson stars Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Logan Lerman and Odessa Young, and was well-received critically at the January festival. Neon's other big purchase was the Andy Samberg vehicle Palm Springs.

Neon thanked The Academy on Twitter after Parasite's wins at this year's awards. This is the first Best Picture win for Neon, which was founded in 2017 and beat out other young rivals like Netflix and Amazon to first Best Picture win. Parasite won over films from seasoned studios Universal, Sony, Warner Brothers and 20th Century, as well as a couple of entries from Netflix.
