Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) Oscar-Winning Studio

When the Academy Awards were presented on 2/24/19, the movie “The Green Book” won three awards including best picture. “Green Book” has won 18 awards since it debuted last November, including three Golden Globe Awards. While a movie winning so many awards is impressive, what is particularly noteworthy is the fact that one of the movie’s backers is Alibaba Pictures, the film-financing and production arm of Chinese internet giant Alibaba Group.

Other Oscar-nominated films it has been involved in include Lebanese actress-director Nadine Labaki’s “Capernaum” and “On the Basis of Sex,” an early-years biopic of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Background on Alibaba Pictures

Alibaba Pictures traces its genesis back to 2014 when it bought a 60% stake in ChinaVision. It initially registered the company in Hong Kong under the Alibaba Films Group and subsequently changed the name to Alibaba Pictures.

During December 2018, Alibaba Group announced that it increased its stake in Alibaba Pictures to approximately 50.92%, becoming the majority holder in the company. The increased stake also makes it a subsidiary of Alibaba Group, according to a company press release.


Alibaba Pictures hopes to leverage Alibaba’s edge in big-data technology and e-commerce and enhance cooperation with other Alibaba’s digital media and entertainment businesses such as Youku (online video), Damai (online ticketing) and Alibaba Literature.
