Oscar-Winning Movies to Watch on Netflix: Fargo
Fargo is one of those rare films that happens to be very dark, but also deeply funny. No wonder it’s on our list of Oscar-winning movies to watch on Netflix.
Frances McDormand stars as a police chief investigating murders in the snow-covered plains of Fargo, N.D. Much of the suspense comes from the mystery at the heart of the plot, so we’ll just say that the plot gets more compelling (and bloodier) as it unravels.
Frances McDormand took home a Best Actress Oscar for her role in the film. Joel and Ethan Coen took home Oscars for Best Original Screenplay. While there are a lot of funny movies to watch on Netflix, none of them are quite so dark or original as Fargo.
