Steven Spielberg wants to make Netflix movies ineligible for Academy Awards



Steven Spielberg reportedly is proposing a rule change at an upcoming Academy Awards board meeting to make Netflix movies ineligible for nominations.

The 72-year-old director has previously compared Netflix originals to TV movies, saying “I don’t believe films that are just given token qualifications in a couple of theaters for less than a week should qualify for the Academy Award nomination.”

Now that Netflix's 'Roma' won 3 Oscar's this year, he wants to flat-out ban them from eligibility.

“Steven feels strongly about the difference between the streaming and theatrical situation. He’ll be happy if the others will join [his campaign] when that comes up [at the Academy Board of Governors meeting]. He will see what happens.”
