Steven Spielberg Reveals Why He Thinks Streaming Movies Don't Deserve Oscars

Steven Spielberg is sharing his opinion on the type of awards that movies distributed via streaming services, like Netflix, should win.

The Ready Player One director spoke out in an interview with ITV News published on Tuesday (March 20).

He called streaming services “a clear and present danger to filmgoers.”

“Fewer and fewer filmmakers are going to struggle to raise money, or to compete at Sundance and possibly get one of the specialty labels to release their films theatrically. And more of them are going to let the SVOD [Streaming Video On-Demand] businesses finance their films, maybe with the promise of a slight, one-week theatrical window to qualify them for awards as a movie.”

“But, in fact, once you commit to a television format, you’re a TV movie…you deserve an Emmy, but not an Oscar.”

“I don’t believe that films that are just given token qualifications, in a couple of theaters for less than a week, should qualify for the Academy Award nominations,” he said.

Watch the interview below.

Steven Spielberg & Tye Sheridan Open Up About 'Ready Player One'!

Ready Player One‘s Tye Sheridan is featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, out on newsstands on March 30.

Here’s what director Steven Spielberg and Tye had to say…

Steven, on the meaning of escapism: “Escape has its pleasurable and medicinal place, but total escape should not be a destination.”

Steven, on the nostalgia of the movie: “The movie isn’t really about nostalgia. Nostalgia is only the window dressing – out your side windows, but the movie takes place out your windshield. It’s a race. It’s a competition for control of the OASIS.”

Tye, on the deeper meaning of the OASIS: “I think it points a finger at this image we feel we have to live up to or strive to be. I think a lot of people, especially a lot of kids right now, are struggling with being themselves and embracing that, embracing who they actually are and coming face-to-face with what that means.”
