The Academy's Board of Governors has made some changes to the rules for the next season of the season. Not including: rumored to be eligible for movies created using streaming services like Netflix.
"We support the theatrical experience as an integral part of the art of film art, and this has had a profound impact on our discussions," said Academy President John Bailey in a statement, the AMPAS late Tuesday after the end of the annual Rules
"Our rules currently require a theatrical exhibition and also allow the submission of a wide selection of films for Oscars", in half Bailey added. "We intend to continue to study the profound changes in our industry and to continue discussions with our members on these issues."
Steven Spielberg misses academy meeting on the suitability of Oscar Netflix films, but gives some opinions At today's meeting of the 54-member Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was the criticism of Steven Spielberg and others voiced (and then unspoken) and a warning from the Justice Department before the exclusion of Netflix seemed a possible confrontation.
Instead, the board left Rule Two untouched, stating that a movie could be eligible for Oscars if it ran for at least 7 days in a commercial theater in the county of LA County. This theater must have at least three performances on each of these seven days for paid entry, and these films may be published on streaming sites on or after the first day of their theatrical qualification run.
It all seemed to be Last Oscar Season, when she introduced and then removed a Most Popular Film Oscar and then hired and lost Kevin Hart as host, the Academy faces serious decisions in the rapidly changing fashion As the world of movies consumes films from the competition such as the Cannes Film Festival, the Academy has opened up to the impact of changes that will be exacerbated by the advent of more studio-based streaming services.
Therefore, what appeared to be increasingly heated was the showdown between the traditionalists and their love for the theater experience and the realities of streaming can be summarized tonight as – later skaters.
A look at what the Academy Board di is doing on Tuesday night instead of doing something it did not. There were a few self-described "budget adjustments" and more today. The Academy has saved its changes for the categories Foreign Language Film and Animated Film.
The first category is now called the International Feature Film and the outdated rule says that at least eight animated films have to appear every year for the second category has been "activated".
In the Make-up and Hairstyling category, for example, there was almost a doubling. In the future, the category will have five instead of three nominated films, and the shortlist will increase from seven to ten images. While it will not mean much for the next Roma the short film categories – animated and live action short films – got some bi-Coastal love tonight. You can now receive a movie release in the county boundaries of L.A. County or NYC to qualify for submission.
See you at the Dolby Theater on February 9, 2020.
