    Yeah but the thing with the Hallmark movies, which I watch lol, is they are all so cheesy and oftentimes bad over the top predictable. Only reason I watch lol.

    That’s my point. Isn’t that one of the criticisms of Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody?

    Also the Original Song nomination was revoked because they campaigned illegally, not for eligibility, so it is possible to get a nomination. It would be funny if Spielberg put his support behind such a film out of spite if he doesn’t get his way. That, or make Netflix execs the villains in his next Indiana Jones film.

    Things have changed in the entertainment industry. Most of the Academy rules have been around for decades. Spielberg is only trying to clarify a rule that has been on the books for years now that we are in a digital age. HBO makes movies. Some of their movies are very good, but they are not eligible for Oscars unless they are put in theaters before being put on HBO. What is the difference between HBO and Netflix? Spielberg is only saying, “You want our award, you need to play by our rules.” What is wrong with that?

    No… Green Book was white washed and bohemian rhapsody isn’t true to the story all the way! And Hallmark is just cheesy as hell so hallmark ain’t getting no nominations for their movies in big categories

    Hallmark is even chessier than that. Same basic formula every movie. Always someone with a kid finding love and learning to let go or someone soooooo busy that discovers the joy of love or the holidays. Just a different setting every time that looks like all the others

    I read an opinion piece on Quora that mentioned the following.

     

    So philosophically, I agree with Spielberg. Netflix is creating content for a television screen and they’re releasing some content in limited release at theatres to qualify for the Academy Awards. They’re gaming the system a bit like a musician booking an eligible theatre for a short engagement to present their concept album live in an attempt to win a Tony.

    I think my biggest thing with this, is I can’t look at this from any other perspective other than award show accolades. Which makes the conversation in question feel quite small and petty. I think film is becoming very blurred, and it likely won’t matter in a decade or so where the medium is released. These categories as they are currently defined may no longer exist period.
