All spielberg said was that laptop/tv movies should have separate recognition than theatrical ones. And this George edelman thinks speilberg doesn't want young people to make movies. What are you so scared of, Mr. Edelman? Why are you so narrow minded? May be you are jealous? May be you wanted to be spielberg and you failed? (See, that's how it feels when you make random judgements about a person you don't personally know)
Movies will not have aura that they currently enjoy if not for the theatrical experience that we have had for a century. Academy awards earned their recognition because of decades of brilliant work meant for theatres. If you want oscars' glory and you are not happy with emmy, then Netflix/Amazon should start their own ceremonies. If you don't have guts to take risks and release in theatres or you are not concerned about theatrical experience, then you don't deserve the accolades that theatrical movies enjoy.
By the way, I am in 20s. So, I am not saying this out of nostalgia. I like to stream movies and go to threatres, but they are different and we need both.
