     March 6, 2019


This week on The Podcast, we’re talking about the recent debate that surfaced when we learned that Steven Spielberg would be attempting to block Netflix movies from Oscar consideration unless they received a longer theatrical run. During our conversation, we talk about the merits of Spielberg’s argument, where his argument falls short, the pros and cons of Netflix, discerning what qualifies as a movie in the age of streaming, where the Oscars factor in to all of this, and much more. We finish up with Recently Watched.
