Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences Will Not Disqualify Netflix Films From Winning Oscars

Hollywood’s recent fight with streaming services over their eligibility for an Oscar is coming to an end.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided they would not change the eligibility rules for streaming services.

According to UPROXX, Steven Spielberg was a strong force against Netflix films being able to compete with Hollywood films. This controversy occurred after “Roma” won three Oscars this year even though it was mostly streamed on Netflix.

The board decided any feature-length film can be considered for an Oscar as long as it has at least a seven-day theatrical run.
