Netflix has taken a seat at the top table after joining the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).
The streamer will sit alongside studios including Disney, Paramount, Sony, Fox and Warner Bros.
“All of our members are committed to pushing the film and television industry forward, in both how we tell stories and how we reach audiences,” said MPAA Chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin. “Adding Netflix will allow us to even more effectively advocate for the global community of creative storytellers, and I look forward to seeing what we can all achieve together.”
“Joining the Motion Picture Association further exemplifies our commitment to ensuring the vibrancy of these creative industries and the many talented people who work in them all over the world,” added Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “We look forward to supporting the association team and their important efforts.”
Netflix becomes the first tech company to join the MPAA – it comes in a week when the streamer picked up 15 nominations for this year’s Oscars.
