For those of you that aren't members of SAG, let me explain what screeners are.
Every January, in anticipation for the SAG awards, SAG sends all paid up members DVD copies of select award nominated films, as well as free movie tickets to new releases, and digital downloads. The reason why SAG does this is so that members can make informed decisions of who they would like to vote for. Plus, it's just a really nice perk of being a member and paying your dues on time. :)
This year, my DVD copies are: The Artist, Bridesmaids, The Descendants, The Help, and Moneyball.
For digital downloads, I have access to: J. Edgar, Midnight in Paris, The Iron Lady, My Week with Marilyn, Warrior, Beginners, A Better Life, Albert Nobbs, and all of the films that were given to me as DVDs.
I was also given free tickets to see The Artist, My Week with Marilyn, and The Iron Lady in theaters if I so choose. I will watch The Artist at home, but will see the other two in theaters for sure.
So while some of the films are available in different formats, it gives me the option of seeing some of them in a way that is most convenient for me. I'm so excited!!
