Academy Prepping Service to Stream Best Picture Oscar Hopefuls for Voters (Exclusive)

It turns out the Academy is working on expanding the streaming platform that it has offered its members in recent years — which made available, via the Academy’s website, animated films for the animation committee prior to the nominations announcement, and documentaries and short films to all members afterwards, all without charging distributors — to include any best picture Oscar contender that a studio wishes to promote at a cost of $10,000 to $15,000 per title. – Rebecca Keegan & Scott Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter » http://bit.ly/2IulbJi

Cannes & Netflix: Fest Chiefs On ‘Roma’ Fallout, Future Plans & French Windows

While Frémaux stressed that Netflix didn’t have any features ready for the 2019 edition of Cannes, this is the first year since 2015 that the festival won’t screen a Netflix or Amazon film. The latter will show two episodes of Nicolas Winding Refn’s TV series Too Old To Die Young, but it’s interesting to note that Cannes is moving in the opposite direction to most A-list festivals, which increasingly show the streamers’ movies. What’s also interesting to consider is that this is becoming a decision taken as much by the streamers as the festival itself. – Nancy Tartaglione & Andreas Wiseman, Deadline Hollywood » http://bit.ly/2ZmvqEw
