Netflix’s rom-com “Mother of the Bride” and Will Forte crime drama series “Bodkin” led the Luminate streaming originals chart for the week of May 10-16, elbowing past higher-profile competition.

Two buzzy streaming original movies — Netflix’s “Unfrosted” and Amazon Prime Video’s “The Idea of You” — held up well in their second full week in release.

“Bodkin,” which revolves around a podcast crew that comes to investigate the disappearance of three people from a small town in Ireland years before, moved swiftly up the original streaming series chart, passing Netflix’s “A Man in Full.” The Jeff Daniels’ starrer came in at No. 2 in its second full week in release. “Bridgerton’s” six-episode third season dropped May 16, the final day of the frame, and generated about 695,000 views — a respectable but not spectacular showing for the lush Regency-era costume drama.

The pic’s biggest audience of the May 10-16 frame came on Mother’s Day, May 12, when it logged about 2.6 million views.

“The Idea of You,” the sexy rom-com starring Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine, dropped 55% in its second full week in release to the No. 2 spot with about 2.7 million views. The pic bowed last week at No. 1 with about 6.2 million views.

“Unfrosted,” the Jerry Seinfeld-led film about the development of Pop Tarts, also held up well in its second week, falling 57% to No. 3 with about 3.1 million views. Prime Video’s & -
