The list was published by Netflix in mid-July 2020. Notable that nearly half the list are films released during the covid-19 pandemic. Action films with recognizable stars tend to dominate, with some breathing room for comedy and horror. Of Netflix's Best Picture nominees, only one is represented. It is also unclear exactly how Netflix calculates viewing totals. Some reports say that watching as little as 15 seconds counts, so consider these numbers "inflated" for sure.
