Should movies produced for streaming platforms be eligible for awards?

In recent years it has become more and more common for movies produced for streaming platforms (like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu) to be nominated for prestigious awards like Oscars or Golden Globes. However, some argue that these are not cinematic art like movies released through major studios and therefore should be ineligible. Are movies released by streaming platforms on the same level as major studios?

Yes, a movie is a movie

The commonly understood definition of a movie is a story of moving images presented on a screen.
