Stevan Spielberg to express Netflix concern to Academy Awards

Stevan Spielberg to  express Netflix concern to Academy AwardsFilmmaker Steven Spielberg is likely to take his criticism of Netflix films at the Oscars to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Spielberg’s Academy Award attention is devoted to ensuring that the race never sees another “Roma”, a Netflix film backed by massive sums, that didn’t play by the same rules as its analogue-studio competitors, reported indiewire.com.

He feels Netflix should only compete for awards in the Emmy arena. As the Academy Governor representing the directors’ branch, Spielberg is eager to support rule changes when it convenes for its annual post-Oscar meeting.

“Steven feels strongly about the difference between the streaming and theatrical situation,” said a spokesperson for Amblin Entertainment.

“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.”

According to the Academy, “Awards rules discussions are ongoing with the branches. And the Board will likely consider the topic at the April meeting.”
