Amazon got a pretty sweet same-day delivery Sunday night — three Oscars.

The Seattle company’s Amazon Studios won a golden statuette for best original screenplay for “Manchester By the Sea,” the story of a man who returns home to care for his nephew after his brother dies. Casey Affleck also won best actor for the movie’s lead role.

In addition, Amazon got an Oscar for best foreign language film for “The Salesman,” an Iranian drama about a couple whose marriage deteriorates as they are rehearsing for a performance of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.”

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was in the audience at Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “If you win tonight, you can expect your Oscar to arrive in two to five business days, possibly stolen by a GrubHub delivery man.”

When the wins were announced from the stage, Bezos tweeted congratulations to the winners.




Amazon was not the only streaming Internet service to win an Oscar this year. Netflix received one for a documentary short-subject, “The White Helmets,” about civilian first responders in Syria.
