Topic for discussion:


All studios have Oscar-worthy movies that they haven't even announced on HD DVD or BD:


- Disney hasn't announced The Queen

- Fox hasn't announced Borat, The Last King of Scotland or Little Miss Sunshine

- Universal hasn't announced United 93 or The Black Dahlia

- Warner hasn't announced Letters from Iwo Jima or Pan's Labyrinth

- Sony hasn't announced Volver or The Pursuit of Happyness

- New Line hasn't announced Little Children


For shame!

Oh boy, that's going to leave the HD DVD faithful NOT seeing red.



I wonder if Fox will release Little Miss Sunshine on BD now?

Well they should. The SD DVD is an EE-ridden, two-sided mess.

Thanks for the nice work Grubert, you have way too much free time on your hands



But to be honest, if I based all of my movie viewing on Oscar nominees I would be missing some great shows and seeing a lot of crap. But maybe that is just me, opinions are like... well, you know...

I don't know; they're trying to heavily target the gamer demographic, and LMS doesn't fit that at all. Then again, they did release The Devil Wears Prada, so it's a possibility.


As time goes on and more people get players, they should be more willing to release a wider variety of titles. I am hoping these nominated films will be day and date, but I won't be at all surprised if some of them don't make it.

Ya but you see,If you ask a fan of HD DVD,they will say that HD DVD will win this war since they use the VC-1 code mainly and thier basic players are cheaper,so therefore Blu-Ray doesn't have a chance.

The Fox titles are clearly skewed toward action titles. But, they are coming out with Tristan & Isolde and Butch Cassidy so there is some indication Fox will drop a few. And the Oscars give LMS a lot of free publicity.


I just had an interesting question pop into my mind: What year does the first movie on HD disc get sent out to Academy members for consideration?
