“The Power of the Dog” is leading the Oscar race with 12 nominations, spanning cinematography, directing and all four acting categories. The western, which was directed by Jane Campion and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, could be Netflix Inc.’s first win for best picture.

For Iain Canning, the joint managing director of See-Saw Films and one of the movie’s producers, it’s a familiar position. In 2011, Canning won the coveted best picture award for “The King’s Speech.” In 2017, he celebrated a nomination for “Lion.”
