Ricky Gervais, at the Golden Globe Awards, said, “No one cares about movies anymore … everyone is watching Netflix. This show should just be me coming out saying, ‘Well done Netflix, you win everything!’” Netflix, which is spending more on acquisition, development and production of original programming than virtually every movie studio is on full-length motion pictures, has reinvented the business model for entertainment. The issue is no longer big screen vs. small screen, the issue is investing in interesting content, properly scripted and competently acted. Netflix gets it.
