Year’s best TV DVDs to be honored

The best TV DVD titles of the past year will be honored at the fifth annual TV DVD Awards Tuesday, October 7, 2008, at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

The awards will honor the best TV DVD releases that came to market between Oct. 1, 2007, and Sept. 30, 2008, focusing on the entire DVD treatment — transfer quality, sound and picture, menu design, ease of use, navigation, packaging and other elements relevant to the DVD.

Categories this year include:

  • Best 2000s Series
  • Best 1990s Series
  • Best 1970s/1980s Series
  • Best 1960s/1950s Series
  • Best Animation TV DVD
  • Best Kidvid TV DVD
  • Best Reality Show
  • Best Documentary Series
  • Best Miniseries/Made-for-TV Movie
  • Best International TV DVD
  • Best Bonus Materials
  • Best TV on Blu-ray
  • Best Complete-Series Set

A panel of judges will select nominees from among all submissions. Winners will be determined by an online consumer vote held Sept. 15-26 at TVShowsOnDVD.com and HomeMediaMagazine.com.

There is no entry fee for sponsors of the dinner; for all others, the entry fee is $150 per title, per category. There is no limit on the number of entries.

A “Best of Show” award also will be presented to the title that in the judges’ opinion is the best all around from the entire pool of submitted entries. However, best of show is not a category for separate submissions.
