    Yet another example of how DVD has changed the video industry is that it now even has a nationally broadcasted award show for DVDs - produced by non other than Dick Clark.

    The show was reasonably entertaining, including the dress made from DVDs that the host, Jenny McCarthy, wore at the opening of the show:

    There were several 'special awards', the most notable was the Pioneer Award that was given to Michael Bay for his countless efforts in promoting and expanding DVD content.

    Here were the results of this year’s standard awards:

    Dick Clark has sunk pretty low [​IMG]

    To get the big picture, we need awards for Worst menus, Worst cover art, Most over-priced, Least Necessary Director's Cut / Special Ed / Collectors Ed / Alternative Endings, etc.

    (And Mr Blackwell should have something to say about that ugly dress)

    I still haven't formed an opinion on Jenny McCarthy's "DVD dress". I'd have to take a look at her in it close up [​IMG]

    The DVD Awards are not a bad idea. There were definitely some deserving winners (Dick Van Dyke Show). The televised awards needed to include more of the actual awards -- such as Best Audio Commentary.

    Keep in mind that this is the 4th year for these awards. The first three years it went by the name "The DVD Premiere Awards". The categories have changed year-to-year, reflecting the changing nature of the business. For instance, in previous years, there wasn't a TV-on-DVD category! [​IMG]

    With DVD getting more and more popular, it makes sense that the awards ceremony would finally be broadcast, and hosted by a recognizable name (wouldn't you fellas like to take HER for a spin? :b ). I hope that as the delivery format eventually changes to HD-DVD, FMD, BR, EVD, or whatever, that these awards continue. Perhaps under the guise of the "Home Video Awards" or something. Because it's always good to have quality recognized by your peers!


    P.S. - congrats to HTF member Charlie de Lauzirika for his award-winning Alien Quad set! I know this is under the tree for me, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing it!
