Streamed Films Now Eligible for Oscars

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says it is opening the Oscars to streaming movies for the or the 93rd Academy Awards. Maybe that will help them get better ratings this year.

Until further notice, and for the 93rd Awards year only, films that had a previously planned theatrical release but are initially made available on a commercial streaming or VOD service may qualify in the Best Picture, general entry and specialty categories for the 93rd Academy Awards under these provisions.
