Netflix Responds to Possible Oscars Shutout Spearheaded by Spielberg
Netflix replied to Steven Spielberg. Oscar-winning director behind such films as Saving Private Ryan and Jurassic Park expressed very clearly his feelings towards the biggest streaming service in the world. Specifically, he sees what they do as something very different since their films are rarely released in theaters and that they are, it's usually the time needed to qualify for the Oscars . At its next meeting, Spielberg will ask the Academy's Board of Governors to bring in a regulatory change that would make Netflix's qualification for the Oscars much more difficult.
Essentially, Steven Spielberg, director of the Academy, director of the branch, will recommend a rule change that would require a movie to have an exclusive four-week theatrical window before it's released elsewhere to be eligible for major Oscars. Netflix, even if they are going out in theaters, will often distribute the film simultaneously on their streaming service. In response, Netflix accessed his official Twitter account and stated:
"We love movies, here are some things we also like: Access for people who can not always get allow, or live in, cities without, theaters, everyone can enjoy at the same time give filmmakers more ways to share the art.These things do not exclude each other. "
For its part, Netflix has given a lot of money and freedom to Hollywood's renowned creations. For example, Alfonso Cuaron was voted best director at this year's Oscars by Roma who was also nominated for the best film. He was considered the favorite to win, but eventually lost to the controversial Green Paper . They also have the very expensive gangster drama of Martin Scorsese The Irishman is expected to arrive later this year.
If Steven Spielberg succeeds, Netflix should then grant a one – month theatrical release to all the movies they want to see rewarded before releasing them on their streaming service. This would certainly serve to upset their subscriber base. Ben Affleck, who plays in the next action film of the Triple Frontier streamer spoke of Today about the recent drama and did not seem to consider the tide change as a problem.

"I think what he was saying was that he believed that There should be a robust theatrical release for the movies.This is not so much a debate about one company or another, like how long does a movie have to stay in movie theaters to be The lines are becoming blurry, I'm sure you can see in the series, people are consuming on their phones, on the Internet, and on television, and the business is changing. much evolved over time. "
It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. Netflix has not only produced more worthy films in recent years, but they have also been the first non-studio to join the MPAA, which means they have become more legitimized in the landscape. Hollywood. In many ways, it's the old guard versus the new guard. Feel free to check Netflix Movie's Twitter account response below.
