Steven Spielberg isn’t on board with the academy allowing streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu in the Oscars.
He feels that they shouldn’t be able to compete on that platform, but is okay with them up for an Emmy award.
Netflix had this to say:
We love cinema. Here are some things we also love:
-Access for people who can't always afford, or live in towns without, theaters
-Letting everyone, everywhere enjoy releases at the same time
-Giving filmmakers more ways to share art
These things are not mutually exclusive.
