From Reuters comes the announcement that Brad Wright’s Stargate: Continuum has won the 2009 DVD Critics Award in the category “Best Nontheatrical Title.”
From the press release, submitted by Home Media Magazine:
The Fifth Annual DVD Critics Awards honor the top DVD and Blu-ray Disc titles from 2008. The awards, presented by Home Media Magazine, are traditionally held during the summer Home Entertainment Summit, which has been delayed this year.
“We still wanted to honor the best titles on DVD and Blu-ray as soon as possible,” said Thomas K. Arnold, Home Media Magazine publisher and executive producer of the Summit.
The delay allowed organizers to create special categories for an online consumer vote, a first in the history of the DVD Critics Awards.
More than 130 entries were judged by a panel of critics and journalists. Submitted titles also were placed in eight special categories for the consumer vote, bringing the total number of awards to 21.
Home Media Magazine (HomeMediaMagazine.com) is the leading home entertainment trade magazine, delivering the latest news, research, analysis, product information and reviews in the DVD and Blu-ray Disc arena, with expanded coverage of digital distribution.
Stargate: Continuum was released July 2008 and was also the recipient of the 2008 High-Def Disc Award back in November 2008 for the category “Best Nontheatrical Blu-ray.” This award was also presented by Home Media Magazine in cooperation with The Hollywood Reporter.
