Netflix still eligible for Oscars as Academy keeps streaming rule unchanged

Thursday 12:39 GMT

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made a few rule changes for the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards but despite rumours, Netflix was not affected.

U.S. Justice Department warns Oscars about blocking Netflix from awards. Among the new rule changes, the Academy has renamed the category Best Foreign Language Film and it will now be known as Best International Feature Film. “We have noted that the reference to ‘Foreign’ is outdated within the global filmmaking community,” said Larry Karaszewski and Diane Weyermann, co-chairs of the International Feature Film Committee.
